Cleansing of the Temple. The "Cleansing of the Temple" refers to the narrative of Jesus and the money changers and occurs in all four canonical gospels of the New Testament. In this Gospel episode Jesus and his disciples travel to Jerusalem for Passover, where he expels the money changers from the Temple, accusing them of turning the Temple into a den of thieves through their commercial activities. In the Gospel of John Jesus refers to the Temple as “my Father’s house”.
