No More Questions

Sometimes I encounter tidbits in the Bible that I never hear people talking about that are so cool it baffles me that no one talks about them. Take this gem, found in three of the gospels:

And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions. – Matthew 22:46

And after that no one dared to ask him any more questions. – Mark 12:34b

For they no longer dared to ask him any question. – Luke 20:40

This happens when Jesus is in Jerusalem, not long before the crucifixion. The Pharisees and Sadducees had been pestering him, trying to trip him up with questions and ridiculous scenarios. They’d been at it for a long time. Sometimes they did it themselves; sometimes they tried to be sneaky by sending other people. But no matter how they went about it, they couldn’t win.

Jesus always knew what they were up to. He always knew what to say. He understood the scriptures much better than they did. He could not be outsmarted, and in the end they had to give up.

Jesus won that round.

Isn’t that fantastic?
