After His brief interaction with two disciples of John the Baptist, who were sent by John to ask whether He was truly the coming One, Jesus had turned to the multitudes to say some important things about John, and about all who are in the New Covenant Kingdom of God. And then, the Lord turned His attention toward addressing the hard-heartedness of the present generation, who like foolish children, had rejected both John and Jesus, leading them to miss the glorious Kingdom of God that was now at hand. They accused John of having a demon, because he came as an aesthetic, not eating or drinking, and they accused Jesus of being a drunkard and a glutton, because He came eating and drinking, and that, with tax collectors and sinners. But, in every case, those who rejected John and Jesus, were without excuse for missing the Kingdom of God, and wisdom would be justified by her children. The truth of the matter would soon be brought to bear, vindicating both John and Jesus, and condemning all who had foolishly rejected them.
