The cures in the Temple (Mt 21:14-21:14)

“The blind

Came to him.

The lame

Came to him

In the Temple.

Jesus healed them.”

 

Καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ τυφλοὶ καὶ χωλοὶ ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ, καὶ ἐθεράπευσεν αὐτούς.

 

This is unique to Matthew.  He said that Jesus actually healed and cured (καὶ ἐθεράπευσεν αὐτούς) the blind people (τυφλοὶ) and the lame people (καὶ χωλοὶ) in the Jerusalem Temple itself (ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ).  These people had come to him there (Καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ).  These actions with the cleansing of the Temple might have upset the Jewish religious leaders in Jerusalem.
