The Thing Higher Than The Highest Things

When Jesus takes the most basic duties of the most essential institutions—duties that surpass even the most bedrock religious obligations of ancient Israel—and says there is something higher, we need to sit up and notice. On three occasions Jesus trumps the very bricks and mortar of the Jewish family by calling upon something even higher: proclaiming the kingdom of God, hearing and obeying the word of God, and doing the will of the Father in heaven. (Lk 9:60, Lk 11:28, Mt 12:50)
