More fun and heavy stuff! The epistle reminds us of where we really belong, and of “walkers” who are only out for themselves because they don’t know anything more.
But the gospel reading has some heavy stuff for us. It’s the familiar story of Jesus teaching in the temple when the Pharisees tried to trick him. But, he tricked them! Not only did he stay out of trouble, he got them into what could have been trouble. And his answer to their trick question is something for us to ponder, too!
