The Royal Stoa was where the Money Changers were housed. Jesus taught from Solomon's Portico. Jesus went to the Temple at least 26 times, recorded in the Gospels; And Jesus entered Synagogues at least 12 times.
English Standard Version, David Cochran Audio
18 So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.Can you imagine Jesus driving people and livestock out of the Temple? It was huge. This would have to be a work of God. How could one mere man drive people and livestock out of the Temple area that we know archeologically was 280 meters by 485 meters? That is a powerful miracle with the Power of God Almighty behind it.
Faith. Belief. They were gifts given when Jesus did these amazing signs.
Would the disciples have felt afraid when Jesus over threw the money-changers? Probably.
