The Pharisees tried to trip Jesus up all the time with intellectual mind games. They, however, were more interested in heat than in light. Their primary concern was not truth, but in protecting their love affair with the world. Nothing has changed, people know that to acknowledge Jesus is to renounce the world, and that is too high a price for many, so they look for ways to justify their unbelief. Unbelief is a refusal to believe. God calls it–rebellion!
