Heard a good sermon on Matthew 11:20-24, where Jesus upbraids Chorazin and Capernaum. "Woe unto thee..." One of those passages we want set in social-historical perspective, so to speak, lest we actually have to take it seriously. Why was Jesus being so hard on those people? Because they knew better. If even Tyre and Sodom could comprehend, then the people of the Law even more so.
Do our children know? Have we taught them? Have we passed down the law and the prophets, the traditions and the philosophy? The fear of the Lord? Or have we left them bereft?
