Some things have become far more important than they need to be. Ever used a fine-tooth comb?
The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.” So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners. That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel, and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.” (Matthew 27 v 6-10)
They majored on the aspects of what it says in Deuteronomy 23:18 “You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the Lord your God to pay any vow, because the Lord your God detests them both.” Yet were blinded to them playing a part in the fulfilment of prophetic fulfilment regarding the death of Christ.
Be careful with what you are scrutinising today. It might cause you to miss the important thing.
