Read the Bible in a Year This evening read Matthew 22:23--46 Some Answers Are "Both...and" Sometimes people ask us questions to which they think they have given us an option only an "either...or" answer. However, some answers are "both...and." Jesus gave the Pharisees a question to which they thought the answer could only be this or that, but it was one of those "both...and" answers. He asked whose Son is the Christ. He quoted Scripture, then asked this question, "If David then calls Him 'Lord,' how is He his Son?" (Mt. 22:45, NKJV) Jesus knew what the Pharisees were thinking and that their preconceived idea prevented them from answering the question. The truth is the Christ is both David's Lord and his son. Therefore, when asking questions and when answering questions, be sure to keep your mind open.
