Boosters With Stones

The Lord Jesus expresses disbelief that any prophet could die outside Jerusalem (Luke 13:33). In saying this, He speaks from the vantage point of the prophets, and not from the vantage of the Sanhedrin Boosters. It is not Nineveh that stones the prophets, but Jerusalem. It is not Babylon that rejects them, but Jerusalem. It is not Susa, but Jerusalem.

And there is a lesson for our time. It is not Hollywood, or Times Square, or Washington D.C. that throws out the prophets.
