Here we read of those with Jesus wandering around the big city like dolts from the country side. I can imagine them staring up with their mouths gaping wide. It is easy to imagine them saying “look at those buildings, how amazing!” I can understand their amazement as the temple alone must have been an incredible sight. It was huge, larger than anything that had most likely ever seen. You can imagine their disappointment when Jesus didn’t share their enthusiasm for stone and mortar, for architecture and design, for state and religious symbolism. He just seemed to brush it all away with a word. “Do you see these buildings?” Well, of course, that is what they were looking at; that was what caught their attention in the first place. They were stunned, amazed, swept away. “These buildings?” Jesus seems to sneer, or at least dismiss their excitement. Today we find what Jesus felt really mattered in those moments.
