Questions 1/17/2016

Matthew 21 – Whose Son Is the Messiah?

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” “The son of David,” they replied.

43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,

44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord:“Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.”’

45 If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.

 

Reflections

This chapter was full of questions. I encourage you to read all Matthew 21 to witness the questions being asked. If this… then what? If that… what then? We (humans) are always looking for the correct answer. Sometimes we avoid the questions because we know we don’t know the answer. Other times we answer the question with a question – something Jesus was very good doing!! I was intrigued by the last line of the chapter – “From that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions!” I can remember being afraid to ask questions in school. Would they sound stupid? Maybe the questions is too challenging.  Will the teacher be angry I asked such a stupid question? What if I am asked to answer my own question!! Asking questions make us vulnerable! SO, in the scripture, did the folks not dare ask any more questions for fear of Jesus asking them questions? Where they afraid to look stupid? Would they be willing to ask the question if they were one on one with Jesus? As you read through scriptures, you will see Jesus is more likely to talk with questions than in declarative statements. After all, he is our teacher!
