When the teaching hits you

New Testament: Matt 21.45

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 21.23–46 on February 1, In the year of our Lord Christ 2021

By Don Ruhl 

Jesus spoke parables to the chief priests and Pharisees to get them to see the truth about themselves, and those parables stepped on their toes: 

Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them.

– Matthew 21.45 

Yet, they did not do anything about it, or rather they did not do anything to change themselves, but they did persecute him, eventually having him killed. 

Questions: 

  • What does persecuting the one who pointed out your faults accomplish? 
  • Have you changed when a speaker indirectly showed you your faults?
