IN OUR modern world of clash
ing ideologies we can readily un
derstand the religious and social
turmoil in Jesus' day. The estab
lished church was striving to
maintain the. status quo; that is,
keeping things as they were.
The people were conscious of a
lack in both their religious and
economic life. The church elders
were afraid of any new move
ment because they who set them
selves up as the last word in
church authority, able to answer
all questions, might lose their
comfortable livings if too many
questions were raised and changes
were to take place in consequence.
The people were under the do
minion of Rome, and they yearned
for freedom another source of
restlessness and dissatisfaction.
They were hoping for the prom
ised Messiah who would lead
them not only" out of their sub
jection to the Romans, but give
them new spiritual life.
Therefore when Jesus came
with His message of love and
clean moral living, the estab
lished churchmen hated and could
hardly wait to put Him to death,
while the "common people" loved
Him dearly and followed Him
Master had driven
chan'gers from the
So they said, "We cannot tell,"
and Jesus answered, "Neither do
I tell you by what authority I do
these things." x
Jesus then told a parable of a
man who planted a vineyard and
put it in charge of certain hus
bandmen. When the harvest was
ready he sent a servant to col
lect the profits, but the husband
men beat the servant; another
they wounded sorely, a third they
killed, and when the man sent his
beloved only son, they slew him.
"What shall therefore the lord
of the vineyard do ? He will come
and destroy the husbandmen and
will give the vineyard to others,"
Jesus said. His meaning was
clear, that these unworthy ones
who were in charge of the Lord's
work, would be dispossessed to
make room for righteous men.
The next trick question these
hypocritical Pharisees asked the
Master was. Is it lawful to give
tribute (or the tax) to the Roman
ruler, Caesar? Jesus ked for a
coin, and seeing the liad of Cae
sar depicted thereon, He said,
"Give unto Caesar the things that
are his, and to God the thir.jjs
that are God's." And again they
marveled at His wisdom.
Then the Sadducces had their
query. They wero what we would
call dissenters. They did not be

temple group. If a man married,
then died and his brother (of
whom he had six) wed his widow,
and the second died and the third
married her, and so on until all
the seven had been her husband,
each one dyinff, and lastly she
died, in the resurrection, who
could claim her for his wife?
Jesus told them1 in the resur
rection ' there would be no mar
riage, but all are "as angels
which are in heaven." In the book
of Moses God declared Himself
as the God of the living, not the
God of the dead.
Sitting near the entrance to the
treasury where the gifts to the
temp'" were deposited, Jesus
watched rich people carelessly
pouring in of their abundance.
The money meant no sacrifice to
them; it meant nothing.
When a poor widow dropped
two mites a farthing in, the
Master declared that her gift
meant more than all the rest. She
gave all she had her living to
the Lord, and her heart was in it.
She was the one who made the
Treat sacrifice for her faith.

So it was that they were set
on trapping Jesus into some
.statement that would give them
an excuse to have Him arrested,
and once in their power, they
knew (or thought they knew) it
would be the end of him. How
wrong they were!

ing, "The baptism of John, was
it from heaven, or of men?"
The rulers of the temple were
now in a dilemma. If they said
