‘But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God.”‘ (Matthew 22:29 ESV)

Jesus rebuked the Sadducees for their lack of knowledge of God’s Word and power. The Sadducees were a Jewish religious sect that was primarily interested in political power. They affirmed only the five books of Moses, rejected the prophets, the writings and the resurrection. Christ’s correction of the Sadducees is an apt warning for today. For we are a generation of biblically illiterate and spiritually impotent people. Repent. Study God’s Word. Be filled with the Spirit.
