When Jesus Lowered the Boom

Artwork for The King's Commission: A Study of Matthew 21-28

After declaring Himself Jerusalem’s king and Messiah, Jesus immediately acted as a stern prophet and zealous priest against Israel’s religious elite.

Indeed, Matthew 21:12–22 provides a glimpse of Jesus’ righteous indignation, where we see Him at His angriest. But what drove Jesus to “lower the boom” on corruption?

In his exposition of this intriguing account, Pastor Chuck Swindoll teaches how anger is sometimes a good and appropriate response through the example of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
