What does Jesus mean when He says “Woe to you”?
Jesus is upset. Jesus is upset with the elite religious leaders of the day.
Jesus hasn’t gotten over it. I am thinking I need to pay attention to this. It is too easy to think Jesus is saying this “to them”. The word of Jesus is like a sharp sword.
It is easy to slip into the religious mode. Maybe I’ve been going to church too long. Maybe the church has been around too long. Maybe it has all gotten old and tired.
Haven’t I heard this sermon before? How many times are we going to sing that hymn?
