Trying to Catch the Lord in His Words

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Mark 12:1-27 today.
A couple of the sects of the Jews tried to do something to Jesus that is impossible to accomplish. They tried to catch Him in His words. Mark wrote, “Then they sent to Him some of the Pharisees and the Herodians, to catch Him in His words” (Mark 12:13). Every time that His enemies tried to do that, they failed. Yet, people have not learned from the sects of the Jews, because people today keep trying to catch the Lord in His words. Listen to people (listen to Christians also) as they try to explain why they should not obey the Lord.
Do you try to look for loopholes or other things in God’s word that will excuse you from obeying Him?
