By Don Ruhl

After Jesus got the chief priests and elders to condemn themselves, He also made them see that the Scriptures spoke of them, condemning them also for rejecting Jesus,

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:

‘The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the LORD’S doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?”
(Matthew 21.42).

He took the Scriptures and by their own admission, He showed them that the Lord had spoken through the prophet that they would reject the very one whom the Lord would use to build the Lord’s superstructure.


  • What did you do when you learned that Scripture condemned you?
  • Is the way the Lord built the spiritual temple marvelous in your eyes?
