But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test Me, you hypocrites?
– Matthew 22:18
It is difficult not to smile at the directness of Jesus. He knew full well the unrighteous intent of His examiners. He perceived their wickedness and straightforward called it (and them) out.
Sometimes the right response is the direct response. Even if it is perceived to be rude.
