Jesus Clearing the Temple

Triple Gate - Jerusalem

Since the Passover of the Jews was near,
Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

 The beginning of this Sundays Gospel reading tells us about Jesus entering Jerusalem for the passover.  This gate, the triple gate, is thought by many scholars to be the entrance that Christ would have used to enter the city and the temple.  It is also in this area the many people believe that Christ cleared the temple area of the money-changers.
