I’ve wondered whether Jesus’ outrage at the Temple following his royal entry into Jerusalem had something to do with the priests’ refusal to acknowledge him as king then and there. God had promised to set his king upon Zion. 

The idea that Jesus expected a purely peaceful transfer of power out of the hands of Herod and Rome seems off to me. That is not to say that Jesus was planning an armed revolt, just that he expected God to act powerfully against his opponents, in accordance with scriptural precedence.
