No one was able to answer him a word, and from that day on no one dared to question him any longer.
[Matt 22:46 NET]
Those who tried to entangle Christ by their questions and quibbles altogether failed.
In modern days there are always those who are trying to throw doubt about Christ’s teachings by pointing out contradictions and inconsistencies. But from all such criticisms the words of Christ come without discredit, shining in the clearness and brightness of truth.
“And so the Bible anvil of God’s word,
For ages sceptic blows have beat upon;
And though the noise of Paine, Voltaire, was heard,
The anvil is unworn, the hammers gone.
Apprentice blows of ignorance, forsooth,
May awe with sound and blinding sparks death–whirled;
The Master holds and turns the iron, His truth,
And shapes it as He wills, to bless the world.”
