Not exactly. The messianists objected to their accepting Roman coins
(bearing the graven image of the deified Augustus) in exchange for
Hebrew ones (ritually required for the purchase of sacrificial animals
and birds) *inside* the Temple precinct. It was a preliminary
purification, an adumbration of the Temple's destruction and
rebuilding promised by the pretender to the throne of David.
