Your points are well taken and I thank you for the discussion.

I was assuming this was the case, conflation and distortion. There is no
basis what so ever for the claim the Jesus was threatening the Temple in
John 2:19 so we must look for that in the synoptic accounts.

There have been suggestions in recent studies that there was some substance
to this claim that Jesus was threatening the Temple. I was exploring that
question with reference to the agent-less passive and of course like all
genuine exegetical questions the topic drifts into extra-linguistic issues.
Don't know how to avoid this.

Thanks for your remarks.
