     Jesus was so gentle and quiet, the synagogue teachers assumed that He would be easily influenced.  They pushed Him to accept the traditions and rules handed down from rabbis of ages long past. 

     Jesus had a simple reply:  “show Me where it says so in the Scriptures.”  He would listen to anything from God’s Word, but He was not interested in human inventions.  Jesus seemed to know the Scriptures from beginning to end.  The rabbis knew that their traditions were not taught by Scripture.  They could see that Jesus understood spiritual matters better than they did.  Even so, they refused to be taught by a child.
