“But Jesus answered and said to them, ‘You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God’.” (22:29)
Jesus is thoroughly questioned by every prominent group, in these chapters. The response above is given to the sadducees after they asked a question and who’s wife will be whose in the hereafter. The question, itself, exposes just how little this philosophical group understood.
Our best rebuttals and arguments against God often double as our most blaring weakness: lack of understanding. If we think we’ve got some doozie of a question that can stump God, we’ve wading into some territory we don’t understand.
The problem from the beginning, which enticed Eve to take the fruit, was a hunger to independently know right from wrong, becoming her own judge. We were created to depend on and trust our creator.
If you’re having a crisis of faith, or there’s a burning question that, left unanswered, could topple your whole belief system, press in. Press on to know, to understand the Scriptures and the power of God. He’s not intimidated, and He’s gentle to respond. He knows we don’t see the whole picture. That’s why He tells us not to set ourselves up as judge. That’s why He tells us to trust Him. Trust the Creator!
