Jesus teaches that the kingdom will grow gradually, like a mustard seed, that few will be saved, that the first will be last, and that he who humbles himself will be exalted.

Sometimes that's the best school.

Of course not. That's the point. Heaven will be different.

People actually choose to not go to heaven.

We're more like the Pharisees than we realize.

They're listening to the wrong song.

Tradition! Tradition.

Tradition is good, but always consider scripture.

The eyes of the evil one are always on us.

Forget the numbers. Get to work.

The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed, not like Jack's beanstalk seeds.

Jesus says a number of frightening things. There will be division – father against son. To whom much is given, much will be required. You’re just as bad as those who were killed by Pilate (or by a falling tower). This is all quite shocking, but the disciples need this wake-up call.
