Several of the Old Testament prophecies deal with what things would be like at the coming of the Messiah. One such prophecy was that the Temple of God would become a den of robbers.
Old Testament Prophecy
Has this house, which bears my Name, become a den of robbers to you? But I have been watching! declares the LORD. [Jeremiah 7:11 NIV]
New Testament Fulfillment
“It is written,” he said to them, ” ‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’but you are making it a ‘den of robbers.’” [Matthew 21:13 NIV]
