Does Coffee Prevent Temple Tantrums?

Does Coffee Prevent Temple Tantrums? October 8, 2015

Given my longstanding interest in the temple incident, I felt I had to comment on David Hayward’s cartoon above. The action of Jesus in the temple, as depicted both in the Gospel of Mark and in the Gospel of John, seems to be a deliberate, well-planned symbolic action, and not an example of someone losing their cool because of a lack of sufficient caffeination or for some other comparable reason.

Those interested in my own thoughts on the story as it relates to the historical Jesus can take a look at my chapter in John, Jesus, and History, Volume 2: Aspects of Historicity in the Fourth Gospel.
