And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”
Jesus the King enters Jerusalem on a donkey. He fulfills prophecy and shows that He is the Prince of Peace, not a conquering King.
But the Peace that Jesus brings will be brought by conquering evil, conquering sin, and conquering the devil.
First stop, the Temple. Jesus drives out those who have turned it into a “den of robbers.”
The King who rides a donkey brings peace back to the Temple of God. Instead of selling, buying, and turning a profit, people will be able to pray to God in peace.
In a few days, Jesus will open the way to God forever by removing the Temple Curtain between the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place in the Temple.
Jesus brings peace by removing the barriers between man and God. Barriers that man first built up by his son, and barriers that needed to be put into place by God to protect man.
Jesus removes our sin with His sacrificial death on the cross. And takes down the barriers erected by God because when sin is removed, God can safely be approached.
