Not Far from the Kingdom of God
In the context of our passage, Jesus arrives in Jerusalem just a few days before He will go to the cross. The religious leaders have been asking Him some trick questions, hoping to trap Him in His words so they can have Him arrested, but Jesus is too wise for them. One of the Scribes asked Him a sincere but poignant question. We will look at how Jesus answered Him. which is where we get the title of our message today.
