My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Matthew 22

Riddles and answers

Summary:
It's like a big party with important people invited. The important people chose to sin instead of coming, so the host (God) invited all people, good and bad. But they better respect the invitation!

Jesus agreed with paying taxes, because the coins were made by Caesar anyway. Might as well give them back.

The Sadducees didn't believe in the afterlife, and asked who someone would be married to in heaven if they had had many wives as a widower. But there is no marriage in heaven. God is God of the ancestors, but not of the dead.

The best commandments are to love God and love others.

Then Jesus confused everyone with his riddles, so they stopped talking to him.

Key verse:
29. You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.

My thoughts:
Bam! This is it. These are the two things which will teach you. The Scriptures and the Power of God. Knowing just one will screw you over, so will knowing neither. You must know both.

Many are invited, but few are chosen. Scary aye. You are invited to God's banquet, but are you letting yourself be one of the few chosen?
