Putting God's Word into Practice…

Matthew 22-Stumped!

on January 25, 2012

Many people were plotting to entangle Jesus in His answers to their “tricky” questions.  They tried to stump Him/outsmart Him–not realizing that He is wisdom, He created wisdom, and it is He who imparts wisdom.

In verses 15-22, The Pharisees and Herodians questioned Jesus about the lawfulness of Jewish people paying Roman taxes.  He responded, and they marveled.  And they left Him and went away.  

Sadducees queried Him about the impossibility of the afterlife in verses 23-23. They ended up astonished at His teaching.

Then Jesus gathered them together and asked a question.  Verse 46 says, “No one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.”

People who reject and question the wisdom of Jesus make themselves fools–it’s a harsh reality!  How thankful I am that my God cannot be stumped! “O the depths of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” (Romans 11:33)
