Gotcha Questions with Jesus

Mark 12:13-34

Question 1:  Is it "Lawful" to pay taxes to Caesar?

  • The Trap:  Would Jesus acknowledge the authority of the Law or the Roman Empire?
  • The Heart Issue:  You were made in the image of God, and your honor and obligation is due to God.

Question 2:  Who will be your spouse in "Heaven"?

  • The Trap:  If everyone is alive in Heave, then someone is committing adultery.
  • The Heart Issue:  Marriage was intended to be an illustration of our relationship with God.  It isn't necessary when we are with God himself.

Question 3:  What is the greatest commandment?

  • The Trap:  Would Jesus get caught in a contradiction?
  • The Heart Issue:  There isn't a run that you can follow.  There is a relationship you must have.
