We aren’t told what the topic was, but it seems clear that Jesus was being grilled. There were hard questions being put and the answers were scrutinized.

Tonight we attended a Bible study (remotely), part of which was spent on James chapter 3.  There wasn’t a lot of time left by the time we got to James’s discussion of the “wisdom from above” in verses 13-18.  But as it generally does, this passage got me thinking.  If we take the passage apart, there’s just so much to think about, in relation to our own walk.

It’s not that human beings are incapable of good.  If we were incapable, then what would be the sense of all the commands and exhortations we read, all the imploring by the Almighty and His Son?  They beg us to do good, to do right.  It must be that we are capable of heeding them.

The account of the death of Uzzah can be an uncomfortable read. All he did was stick his hand out and the ark from falling off the cart upon which it was being carried. Yes, they weren’t following the prescribed way of carrying the ark, but isn’t striking Uzzah with a death blow a little harsh?
