Jesus had a high regard for pure worship of His Father. He wanted to rid the temple of the abuses that had crept into that worship. The moneychangers and sellers obeyed Jesus for several reasons:
1.They were punished by their consciences
2.They thought Jesus was a prophet, and the Jews had respect for prophets.
3.Jesus had a wide reputation among the people, and many of them thought He was the long-promised Messiah.
4.He made people tremble in His presence.
