I always feel so bad for the Pharisees and the lawyers against whom Jesus so often spoke. Um . . . yeah.

Well, not really!

In the matter of justice, Luke’s Jesus places high value upon it. Jesus so often spoke against those in power and authority, because that power and authority so often was corrupted.

Does this happen today, too, even though we are living post-enlightenment, post-modern lives?


All you need to do is to check the news to answer that question!

Revealing One . . . open my eyes to see injustice and to speak up where I can to bring about your plan of righteousness. Amen.
