This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

position in relation both to God and to the prophets? What does it teach us (a)

(b) about His own expectation of vindication and victory?
2.Verses 13-17. How does this incident reveal both the wisdom
of Christ and the insincerity of His questioners? What important truth was
Jesus trying to convey to them, and of what relevance is this to us? Cf. Rom. 13:1, 2, 6, 7.
3.Verses 18-27. The Sadducees were obviously attempting to

would know that He was referring to Israel, and that this was yet another parable
