Why was Jesus so upset about a little business being transacted in the temple courts?
Because this was supposed to be a house of prayer and it has become something else, that which was not intended, therefore he was upset without sin at those who were engaged in the transactions being performed in as stated a place that was to be a house of prayer to God the Father. Itís important to note Jesus could have said this was a house of many other attributes but instead He said this is a HOUSE of Prayer showing the importance of praying to our Loving Father. What value then is Prayer to God?

Why was Jesus so upset about a little business being transacted in the temple courts?
Jesus was demonstrating against the improper pharisitical legalization of the Law. Where does the Law state that Greek drachmas were impure and unsuitable for the synagogue? The animals being sold were the weak and blemished, sold at a premium, to line the pockets of a few. Jesus' ministry continually disputed the way the Pharisees would interpret (legalize) the Law. Just as Jesus spoke in the Sermon on the Mount, he did not come to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it.
