About this Episode

At the end of their rope, unable to stop Jesus from upsetting their authority with his claims to be God himself, the Pharisees resort to the worst of all accusations against Jesus: his work has nothing to do with the Spirit of God, and everything to do with the spirit of the Accuser, the Satan. Even on the face of it, it’s a ridiculous accusation. Why would the Accuser impede his own subjects in their work? But the accusation, far from landing on Jesus, instead reveals the heart of the Pharisees themselves: they are so opposed to Jesus that they ascribe the very acts of God to Satan. What could be worse? Join us for “The Accusation” in Matthew 12:22-32.
