'DEN OF THIEVES'
This was the scene in Temple Square yesterday when Jesus of Nazareth made a whip and drove merchants and money-changers out of the area, saying the Temple should be a place of worship and not commerce. His show of righteous anger has made him even more unpopular with Jewish religious leaders than he was before he arrived to a throng proclaiming him to be the Israel’s promised “messiah.” {Artwork by Carl Bloch (1834-1890)}

JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM
A throng of worshipers hail Jesus of Nazareth as the “king of the Jews,” “son of David” and “messiah” as the desert-dwelling healer/teacher rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. Jewish leaders told the Nazarene carpenter-turned-prophet to rebuke the crowd, but Jesus quipped that if the crowd didn’t proclaim it, the rocks would. {Artwork by Eduard von Gebhardt (1838-1925)}
