In the New Testament it is stated that after the capturing of John, Jesus went to the Galilee. The story about Johns arrest is not stated until considerably later in connection with his death. He was arrested at the end of his report of Johns preaching it is only simply stated and Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee. How much time had elapsed between the temptation and the return to Galilee, and what Jesus had been doing in the meantime is not stated in the testament.

However the Fourth Gospel, which ignores both the baptism and the temptation, says that on the day after Johns testimony to Jesus at the Jordan he repeated it in the hearing of two of his disciples (In 1:35-42), one of whom was Andrew of Bethsaida in Galilee, and that Andrew thereupon brought his brother Simon to Jesus, who named him forthwith The Rock.

          After that, Jesus spent a few days in Capernaum with his mother and his brothers and his disciples and then returned to Jerusalem. But the entrance in Jerusalem was so silently the people believe that Jesus comes from the Golden Gate where it was believed the messiah would enter Jerusalem. After reaching there Jesus goes straight to the Temple, Herods Temple, and starts, without explanation, throwing over tables and driving the dove salesman and money changers from the courtyard of the Temple and stops people from bringing anything for sale through the Temple courts.

The doves were used for sacrifices and the standard Greek or Roman money used by people had to be changed into special blessed Jewish or Tyrian money suitable for use.  Jesus tells everyone that Is it not written: My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.

But you have made it a den of robbers. The incident with the money changers is in all the Gospels.
