Jesus cast out the money changers
Jesus visited the Temple in Jerusalem, where the courtyard is described as being filled with livestock
and the tables of the money changers. The money changers made a profit by changing the standard Greek and Roman money for Jewish and Tyrian money, which were the only
coinage that could be used in Temple ceremonies. According to the Gospels, Jesus took offense to this (extorting profit from the exchange
of monies), and so, creating a whip from some cords, drives out the livestock, scatters the coins of the money changers, and turns over
their tables, and those of the people selling doves.
