The Very Rev. Daniel P. Richards proclaims the questioning of the Pharisees in Matthew’s text using the stories of Brer Rabbit as an example. Jesus is not a trickster but a wisdom teller and wisdom incarnate. How do we respond as disciples of Christ?
Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
