Esa imagen convertía la moneda en inaceptable para su uso en el templo. Habia que cambiarla por moneda acept- able a la ley Judia. Por otro lado, no era practico traer animales desde lejos, asi que tambien se vendian ahi. Todo esto se hacia en el atrio del templo, no dentro. Jesús se irrita por la falta de devoción y piedad verdaderas y por los abusos e injusticias de los mercaderes. Jesús sentía un gran celo por la casa de su Padre, por que sabía que el templo debia ser el lugar sagrado de la presencia de Dios, donde el pueblo se prepararia para conocerlo a Él, el Nuevo templo. Es imprescindible ver que Cristo es la nueva imagen de Dios, el Nuevo comienzo de lo que Dios realiza en y para su pueblo, y que el Padre ha depositado en Cristo su infinito poder que es mucho mas fuerte que el poder humano, y su inagotable sabiduria que es mas sabia que la sabiduria humana. Ahora : Comprenderemos que todo el plan de Dios se cumple plenamente en la persona de Cristo? Vemos que Jesús es el cumplimiento de todas las promesas de Dios? Ojala acepte- mos que Cristo es el Nuevo templo de Dios, el unico camino, la unica verdad, la unica vida.
