Is it not the case, therefore, that Luke has Jesus clear the temple of
in 19.45, in order that it can be used, as Luke thinks it should be used,
prayer (19.46), praise (24.53) and teaching (20-21, cf. 2.41-52)?
>>Indeed, and 19:47, which forms an inclusion with 21:37-38, should be added to
the last series of citations - on teaching. One should not, however, miss the
revolutionary character of the narrative. The temple has now become the
place, not for teaching in general, but for JESUS' teaching, and the
authorized and conventional teachers of Judaism have been silenced.
