     Explanation: Jesus cleansed the temple of commercial ventures twice in his ministry - - once at the beginning of his ministry (just after the marriage feast at Cana of Galilee), and once at the end of his ministry (5 days before his Crucifixion and on the same day he cursed the fig tree).

Matthew 21:12-17; Mark 11:15-19; Luke 19:45-48 & 21:37-38

     Mark 11:15 And they came to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple [Matthew 21:12 of God], and began to cast out [Matthew 21:12 all them] that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves; Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple. Mark 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but you have made it a den of thieves. Matthew 21:14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. Matthew 21:15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, Matthew 21:16 And said unto him, Hear you what these say? And Jesus said unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise? Luke 19:47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, Luke 19:48 And could not find what they might do: [Mark 11:18 for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine] (and) all the people were very attentive to hear him. Luke 21:37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night [Matthew 21:17 he left them,] he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives [Matthew 21:17 into Bethany; and he lodged there.] Luke 21:38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, for to hear him.
