Matthew 15:12 – Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?”
And now, Admonition.
Sometimes there are some very interesting questions in scripture, and I find Matthew chapter 15 to hold one of the most interesting ones that I’ve looked at. It’s a question that comes to Jesus from his disciples. Notice what we read in Matthew chapter 15 verse 12, Then his disciples came and said, do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?
Jesus has just made a statement in opposition of the Pharisees, He’s called them hypocrites, and the disciples come to him privately and say, Do you know they were offended when you said that? And Jesus didn’t walk it back. Say, Oh, Jesus needed to apologize! You shouldn’t offend people. That’s wrong! Jesus didn’t say that.
Jesus said, every plant, which my heavenly father is not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. When you offend a sheep, you need to repent. When you offend a Wolf, you’re protecting the flock.
