The clip Confrontation with the high priest from The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) with Willem Dafoe, Nehemiah Persoff

This is my father's house!
It's a place of worship! Not a market!
Nazarene, what are you doing?
[ Shouting Stops ]
What are you doing?
God doesn't need a palace!
He doesn't need cypress trees or dead animals! He doesn't need shekles!
You expect people to pay the tax with Roman coins?
They have images of false gods on them.
You want pagan gods in the temple?
All foreign coins have to be exchanged for shekles.
That is the law.
I'm throwing away the law.
I have a new law and a new hope.
Has God changed his mind about the old law?
No. No, He just thinks our hearts are ready to hold more, that's all.
This chaos is your new law. How can you presume--
How can I presume? Because I'm the end of the old law and the beginning of the new one!
Watch what you're saying.
Maybe we should go.
When I say "l", rabbi, I'm saying God.
That's blasphemy.
Didn't they tell you?
I'm the saint of blasphemy.
Don't make any mistakes!
I didn't come here to bring peace. I came to bring a sword.
Talking like that will get you killed.
Me killed?
Listen to me. This temple will be destroyed in three days.
Torn down to the ground! There won't be one stone left to build with!
You think God belongs only to you? He doesn't.
God's an immortal spirit who belongs to everybody!
To the whole world!
You think you're special? God is not an Israelite!
