This post originally appears as a chapter within my book The Gospel of the Rauschmonstrum.
Jesus entered the city’s temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money lenders and the seats of those who sold doves “My temple will be a house of prayer, but you merchants have made it a den for thieves”
The blind and the lame came to the temple to see him, and through the power of the Rauschmonstrum, Jesus healed them. But when the Pharisees, and chief priests, and the teachers of the law saw the glorious things Jesus was able to do through the Rauschmonstrum, and saw the children shouting in the temple courts, “Bless the Son of God,” they were indignant.
Jesus begun teaching in the temple daily, and the Pharisees, and chief priests and scribes were seeking to destroy him, but they were not able to find anything they could do, for all of the common people were hanging on his words.
“Surely it will not be long now” thought the Rauschmonstrum. “These Pharisees and scribes may be terribly incompetent, and preach nonsense, but they will find a way to destroy the Nazarene eventually.”
But once again, they were afraid of the multitude of followers; so they left him and went away.
“These people are useless, for if they truly want to kill the Nazarene, they must not have this fear of the crowds.” The Rauschmonstrum began thinking of a way to bring about Jesus’ destruction himself.
