In Matthew 12, we read one of the most pivotal moments in the entire gospel account: Jesus presents the evidence that he is the prophesied and long-awaited Messianic king, and ultimately Israel’s leaders at the time reject him. It was a grievous error with world-altering consequences. The verses that follow contain something of an analysis, a post-mortem if you will, of the causes that led them to that point.

Today on the podcast, Andrew and Josiah discuss this momentous occasion, how we experience earthly consequences for our actions, and how to be on the lookout and defend against those same causes having a negative impact in our own lives.
