Jesus speaks the truth, not as the scribes did, but as the last word. In today’s world, there’s always someone higher up on the food chain. If you don’t like what they tell you in the aisle, you can go to the service desk. You don’t like what they say there, you can go to the manager. The manager doesn’t say what you like, you can write a letter to the stockholder’s board. There’s always a higher authority to go to. Not with Jesus. He’s the final word.
