YESHUA didn’t mince words; He told the Pharisees and the Scribes the TRUTH.
He even quoted Isaiah — they were well familiar with Isaiah.
They did not like what He said. They didn’t like what He quoted to them.
He also quoted Exodus and Deuteronomy at the time recorded for us in Matthew 15.
JESUS knew all the Scrolls of what we call the Old Testament and He quoted passages often.
I think we His followers should too.
Like we should get to know Scripture so well we can bring It into a conversation just like JESUS did.
Verse 12. Do you know what we read there?
The Disciples went to YESHUA and said:
12 Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you realize you offended the Pharisees by what you just said?” source NLT
Can you imagine the scene?
We are so like them, aren’t we?
Well, some of us are.
I am privileged to be acquainted with a few who are not intimidated if the TRUTH offends.
I think all GOD’s Children should grow into this great LOVE.
It takes LOVE to tell the TRUTH — especially when you know it’s going to sting, even flat-out hurt.
But you know what?
HELL hurts, burns, and stings forever.
