If you are happy with the way things are—if you own property, if your business is thriving, if existing social and religious institutions work in your favor, the last thing you want in your town is a prophet. A prophet brings news that God will bring an end to the current situation. A prophet warns of God’s wrath and judgment. In fulfillment of the prophets, Jesus proclaims this judgment in the Resurrection and the coming Kingdom.
Of course the Sadducees say there is no Resurrection.
Richard and Fr. Marc discuss Matthew 22:23-28.
