Some conflicts die-hard. Perhaps you can remember a time when someone or yourself just wouldn’t let an issue go? Even if the debate has been settled, the issue isn’t. Jesus finds himself in the heart of Jerusalem during their holy week. While here we have already seen Jesus turn the tables in the Temple. His first move is one of offense and the religious leaders are quick to fight back. This chapter in the book of Mark is rich with conflict of words but it wont be long before they return with swords. Chapter 12 begins a series of the “battle of the words”. This Wise Fight, allows Jesus to take our arrogance to the school of Jesus.
