Long last day wea Jesus go long temple, hem talem stret olketa man for teachim law and olketa Pharisee olketa laea tumas and hem gohed storyim samting wea showimaot datwan hem tru. Hem sei: “Iufala wasim nomoa aotsaed long kap and dish, bat insaed iufala greedy and ova tumas and no kontrolem seleva. Iufala olketa Pharisee wea blind, klinim firstaem insaed long kap and dish mekem aotsaed savve klin tu.” (Matthew 23:25, 26) Olketa Pharisee ova tumas for klin and for luk holy, bat olketa nating warim wei bilong olketa or klinim tokpiksa heart bilong olketa.

Bat olsem Jesus talem, olketa nao “pikinini bilong olketa wea killim dae olketa profet.” (Matthew 23:31) Diswan hem tru bikos olketa barava laek for killim dae Jesus.—John 5:18; 7:1, 25.

Then Jesus storyim wanem bae kasem olketa bigman hia sapos olketa no repent. Hem sei: “Iufala pikinini bilong olketa poison snek.

Olketa disaepol bilong Jesus nao bae “olketa profet, olketa man wea wise, and olketa teacher.” Wanem nao bae olketa bigman duim long olketa? Jesus sei long olketa: “Bae iufala killim dae samfala long olketa [disaepol bilong mi], nilam olketa narawan long post, and samfala moa bae iufala whipim nogud long olketa sinagog and ronem olketa from olketa taon bilong iufala.

Hem sei: “Olketa givim lelebet nomoa long staka selen wea olketa garem, bat disfala woman, nomata hem poor, givim evri selen wea hem garem.” (Mark 12:43, 44) Tingting bilong disfala woman and wanem hem duim hem barava difren from olketa bigman!

Taem Jesus go aot from temple, wanfala disaepol sei long hem: “Teacher, lukim! olketa ston and haos hia barava spesol tumas ia!” (Mark 13:1) Samfala ston long wall bilong temple hem big tumas wea mekem hem luk olsem hem strong and no eni samting savve spoelem. Bat Jesus sei: “Iu lukim olketa spesol haos hia nao ia. Bat iu savve, olketa bae aotem evri ston from olketa haos hia and no eni samting bae stopem datwan for happen.”—Mark 13:2.
