Wrong to see Jesus as a Political Revolutionary, Pope Says

Last edited 12th March 2012

Reflecting on the cleansing of the Temple, recounted in the day’s Gospel reading, the Pope said that some readers interpret it as a “political-revolutionary gesture.” But that interpretation is wrong, he said. The Pontiff pointed out that when Jesus drove out the money-changers, “it did not cause any reaction from the guardians of public order, because it was seen as a typically prophetical act.”
