Jesus was able to clear the temple of the thieves and yet captivate the audience.
He was able to share God's message of love with those who sought it, yet convict those who merely pretended.
He was able to stand against those who came against Him, despite the fact that those who came against Him were afraid of the opinion that those he taught had.
Jesus was able to call the religious out, without stooping to their level. He was able to amaze and silence them by His response.
