In chapter 22 of Matthew’s Gospel, the Jewish religious leaders surround Jesus, asking him one controversial question after another, all in an attempt to embarrass him in front of the crowds. After handling three particularly tough questions, Jesus then turns to the religious leaders and asks them: “What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” (Matthew 22:42). It is a question that is directed, not only at the Pharisees and Sadducees, but to us, too. What do we think of Jesus?
In today’s sermon, Jasmine will take a closer look at this question along with all of the other tough questions that the religious leaders have for Jesus.
