    BSP; Verse 38 (reply); This is an extremely important point! We see the world is bursting with wanna-be prophets, false teachers, and misguided UN-Spirit-filled expounders of the times; while the Lord said, that the only sign really given to them by God, is the one they all categorically despise and reject; which id the preaching of the cross of Christ. So for all those, all is done in parables.
  • BSP
    Verse 38~The Pharisees wanted to see a sign, but Jesus did not give them one. Jesus recognized that their motives and intentions were not pure so they did not receive a sign.
  • BSP
    Verses 48-50~Jesus showed that in the congregation we should have a loving and family-like atmosphere. We must strive to cultivate deep love for one another.

    Either you are for Christ or against Christ, and those whom are against Him shall be scattered abroad. They say they believe in His word but, their hearts believed not in Him. All glory and honor much be given to God the Father, in Jesus name. Amen
