"Treasurers of the temple committed a sacrilege"

The exchange of money and other monetary affairs was normal practice at the temple - temples were not only economic centers Hebrew, but in all ancient cultures, of the Middle East. Why things were so, was that at first, power is not in the hands of leaders, but was administered by priests, in the name of the gods. Therefore persecution of merchants from the temple, committed by Jesus was an act unheard of, and not a few church historians believed that this contributed fundamentally to the sentencing Jesus to death.
