Jesus concludes His time in the Temple by teaching, warning, and observing. He teaches the scribes how to understand the Old Testament in light of the promised Messiah. Not only is He David’s greater Son—He is also David’s Lord. He then warns against religious hypocrisy, which is evident in those whose lives are high on spiritual pretense but low on actual performance. This warning is followed by Jesus’ observation of a widow who is poor in the eyes of others but rich toward God. She gave little by the world’s standards but kept nothing back from the Lord. In each of these cases, Mark highlights the significance of seeing life as God has designed it to be—with Christ exalted above all, and with us responding by giving Him our all.
