Those who were healed here did not join in the shouts of “Crucify Him” when Jesus was killed.  They had felt His power.  They knew He was their Saviour.  They listened to His apostles and began to spread their stories about His love and the salvation He offered. 

The crowd that had run from the temple was now making its way back.  When they saw and heard what Jesus had done, they were astounded.  Most felt sure that Jesus must be the Messiah. 

The priests were responsible for what the temple had become.  The people were largely innocent.  Years of religious training told them that the priests must know best.  What right did Jesus have to interfere with the temple market that the priests allowed?  With thoughts like these, they quieted the voice of the Holy Spirit and refused to follow Jesus.
