The question about David’s son

TEXT: MATTHEW 22:41-46

Still in the temple, and after the Pharisees, Sadducees and the Pharisees' lawyer had been silenced, Jesus posed his own question.

"What think ye of Christ? Whose son is he?" Jesus asked.

The Pharisees said, "The son of David."

The great commandment

TEXT: Matthew 22:34-40

Q&A's Part III

This is the third whack at Jesus using the "Questions & Answers" format. After the Sadducees were silenced in "The question about the resurrection," The Pharisees come back for more after Jesus silenced them in "God and Caesar."

The question about the resurrection

TEXT: Matthew 22:13-33

Q&A Round No. 2

Sadduccees, who don't believe in the resurrection of the dead, angels or even that there is a spirit in man, now approach Jesus to ask Him about what will happen in a hypothetical case involving the resurrection.

So, their tale begins. A woman marries a man who has seven brothers, he dies and they are childless. Mosaic law says she must marry his brother so they can have a child. The second brother marries her and they have no kids … all the way to the last brother. Still, the woman is childless. The Sadducees want to know whose wife she will be in the resurrection.

God and Caesar

TEXT: MATTHEW 22:15-22

Q&A ROUND 1: The Pharasees, their disciples and the Herodians

After Jesus had told the last of three parables to the temple's chief priests and scribes, three rounds of Q's and A's followed. The Questions & Answers sessions were initiated by three Jewish political-religious sects: The Pharisees and their disciples, the Herodians and the Sadducees.
