Jesus said death was ahead of him at Jerusalem and now it almost seems like he’s calling it out to come fight him. First he flips tables full of money at the temple; then he calls the Pharisees out on their hypocrisy; then he tells the Saducees that they’re, “Quite wrong”; and now he calls the Scribes out on their oppression and pride.
In doing so, he leaves us with a comparison between the adored Scribe who thinks he’s something and the oppressed widow who thinks she’s nothing. But as is typical when seen through the eyes of the Kingdom of Heaven, Jesus shows us that the two are actually reversed.
