For 23 November 2007, Friday of 33rd week, based on 1 Maccabees 4:36-37, 52-59, Luke 19:36-37, 52-59
Then Jesus entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling things there; and he said, â€œIt is written, â€˜My house shall be a house of prayerâ€™; but you have made it a den of robbers.â€ Every day he was teaching in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him; but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were spellbound by what they heard.
