     With the humility of a child, Jesus repeated words of Scripture, giving them meaning that the teachers had never imagined.  if they had accepted the truths He suggested that day, it would have sparked a new interest in spiritual things.  The whole nation would have been touched, and when Jesus began His ministry, many would have followed Him at once.

     In their pride, they would never admit that anyone could teach them, God reached out to them in the only way they would listen.  Without realizing it, their minds were open and the Holy Spirit spoke to their hearts.

     For the very first time they saw that the Messiah they expected was not the One promised by the prophecies.  Their dreams of power and glory for Israel were hard to give up.  They could not admit that they had misunderstood the Scriptures.
