Christ driving the Money-Changers from the Temple. Designed by William Butterfield and executed by the London stained glass firm of Bell & Beckham.. Tile painting, interior of the Church of St. Augustine Queen's Gate, Queensgate Mews, Kensington, Greater London SW7 5JE.

Several elements in this panel greatly resemble W. Holman Hunt's The Finding of the Saviour in the Temple (1860), which was exhibited in London five years before the completion of the church — in particular (a) the open area, or window compsoition, at lower right, (b) the blind man sitting on the steps of the temple, and (c) the flying doves, all of which appear in Hunt's work.
