The Jewish Rabbis

I was walking with Jesus. He was tall with dark hair and was wearing a traditional linen robe. A group of Pharisaic rabbis had approached Jesus. They were condemning him for his teachings, periodically slapping him on the face. We walked to another group of older rabbis. They were also wearing traditional linen robes. Jesus spoke to them, and his words were that of the Father. His tone was compassionate but firm. While he was speaking, he knelt and began writing in the sand. He asked the men why they continued to reject God’s truth, and at one point he said: “I even caused one of you to calculate all of the timelines in the scriptures so that you would have confirmation. Still, you have continued to reject my word.” There was an inflection of puzzlement in his voice.
