Yes, Barney, there are multiple versions of the Bible. I also have an opinion about that, but it is just my opinion, and better left unspoken.<quoted text>
Speaking of the 3 of the four,
Matt 21:12 (NIV) Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 "It is written," he said to them, "`My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it a `den of robbers.'"..
Mark 11:15 (NIV) On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written:`My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations'? But you have made it `a den of robbers.'" 18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.
Luke 19:45 (NIV) Then he entered the temple area and began driving out those who were selling. 46 "It is written," he said to them, "`My house will be a house of prayer'; but you have made it `a den of robbers.'" 47 Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him.
Another thing Redd could have been referring to a cleansing that occurred near the beginning of Jesus ministry, not the one that happened after what we now call Palm Sunday.
John 2:13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!" 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
And yes, I believe Jesus began His earthly ministry cleansing the temple, and as His earthly ministry was ending, I believe He cleansed it again.
As for the account of these two events, I happened to have referenced something other than the NIV. I used the King James Version, I believe. After studying the Greek meanings of various words from each one of the Gospels in my Strong' s Concordance, and after reading prophetic verses in the Old Testament that point to these events where Jesus cleansed the temple, thus fulfilling prophecy and giving credence to Him being the Messiah, I personally believe He ventured inside an actual area, inside the actual temple of God.
If you chose to think differently, ok.
