Matthew 12:33-42: Fruit Trees and Prophecies

Matthew 12:33-42: Fruit Trees and Prophecies

The religious leaders have just accused Jesus of working miracles by demonic power. Jesus responds to their accusation and then explains the fundamental problem with humanity as well as the only proper way to respond and interact with God. We find that the natural human condition is far different than the world tells us. This explains much about the religious leaders and about us today. The condition is the same and so it the remedy. The real question is will we learn from the bad example of the religious leaders or commit the same blunder?
