What’s super interesting to me about what Jesus says here is that, in one short passage, He covers the nature of the inspiration and authorship of the Bible, how messianic hermeneutics functions, and the identity of the Messiah as greater than they had known. In a couple sentences, He gives us so much clarity and tools for our own understanding and interpretation of the Bible – and also shows some clever behavior in asking His own question to finally trump the numerous trick questions of the opposition, showing superior knowledge of God, Messiah, and the Scripture. Jesus is awesome!
