Tuesday of the 1 week in ordinary time ‘b’
Jesus taught with authority. Those who gathered to listen to Him were amazed that what He taught, He also practiced to the point that even the evil spirits obeyed Him. They were not used to teaching like that, since the scholars of the law and the scribes that they experienced taught them and corrected them but didn’t implement what they taught into their own lives. Today there are many that represent the Church and teach us, correct us and speak in the name of God, but they don’t implement this teaching into their lives. Jesus never liked hypocrites. We can’t correct others if we ourselves don’t follow God’s law.
