What do you think he is talking about there? What is the context of that passage? Who is he talking to, what is he asking them to do and to whom, why is he asking them to do it, and what is he preparing them to expect? And what kind of reaction has Jesus already been receiving? How has Jesus’s entire time on earth not been in the center of a people that should have had arguably the closest, most integral relationship with God?
To a very large degree I hate that we have broken up the bible into chapter and verse. We have let that system lull us into thinking we can examine verses independant of the story they are within.
