Chapter Summary

The dispute between Jesus and Jewish theologians and 'churchmen' that finally led to his condemnation to death was a controversy over the interpretation of Scripture. It appears not only in those debates formulated in the Gospels as yelammadenu midrashim but also in the reaction to Jesus' forgiveness of sin and to his affirmations at his trial, where charges of blasphemy were leveled at him. By forgiving sins in his own name, i.e. as the Son of Man, Jesus implicitly claims a prerogative of God and thus evokes an interchange with the scribes. If the trial proceedings are fairly summarized by the Synoptic tradition, they reflect a biblical dispute over the nature of Jesus' messianic claims. The temple in Jerusalem is never the object of any threat by Jesus although he calls it 'your house', referring to the city that has rejected him, and he predicts its destruction by others.
