Jesus’ Anger

     On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, and would not allow anyone oto carry merchandise through the temple courts. And as he taught them, he said, 

   “Is it not written:

“‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’?

But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.'”

The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to killl him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching. 

When  evening  came, they went out of the city. 

(Mark 11:15-19 NIV)


What are your feelings about anger? What is your initial reaction to Jesus’ anger? Why?

The money changers and the vendors were taking advantage of the faithful making pilgrimages. Where do you see injustice happening today?

Addressing injustice can be risky. Where and how can you stand up against injustice?
