What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?

Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet’?

If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?” And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.

I think that some answers to deep questions are fairly simple unless you are predisposed to reject the obvious answers. Such is the case in this question that Jesus asks the Pharisees. The son of David and the Son of God stood before some of the greatest biblical scholars of that day and not one of them had a clue concerning the answer. One might think that these who knew the scriptures might have known that the Messiah was not a mere mortal.

I have to admit that, like the Pharisees, my biblical predispositions have caused me to be blind towards the workings of the Holy Spirit. Because of my rigid belief system I once could not see people in 'liberal' churches as people indwelt by the Spirit of God. Interesting to note that I now attend one of those churches and have been blessed by the way that my eyes have been opened to biblical truth there. And my eyes are a bit clearer these days.

Open my eyes again today Lord that I might see Jesus.
