6 Word Friday

Question:

What think ye of Christ?

One thing I love about Jesus is that you can't put Him in a corner - This prompt for 6 word Friday reminded me of this interchange between Jesus and some of the religious leaders of His day:

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, “Then how does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying, ‘THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, “SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT THINE ENEMIES BENEATH THY FEET”’? “If David then calls Him ‘Lord,’ how is He his son?” And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question. (Matthew 22:41-46 NASB)

He would often answers questions - especially when they were intended to trip Him up - with a new question, which sent them off scratching their heads. This time He started it - you really have to love Jesus!

    I love so much about Jesus, but I do love how he knew the Pharisses were trying to trip him up and how he responded with a question that would trip them up and try to cut through their arrogance.
