A Community of Misfits on a Mission

Jesus’s Temple Protest

Jesus’s temple protest reveals God’s heart for the oppressed and Jesus’s critical eye toward structures in society that exploit the poor. This passage challenges those of us who are more inclined to avoid conflict to speak truth to power. But it’s important to note that Jesus’s table-flipping isn’t for “both sides”—all tables are not the same. Knowing which tables need to be flipped requires the discernment that comes from being rooted in healthy community.
