Christ Casting out the Money Changers – Bloch


Jesus cleanses the temple of the money changers in this artwork by C. Bloch.

"And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the chairs of them that sold doves: And he saith to them: It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves." — Matthew 21:12-13
