This chapter contains part of one of the extended teaching sections that Matthew includes in his gospel. In this one, Jesus had just been questioned by the Sadducees and Pharisees in which His answers left them stymied and uncharacteristically silent. In this chapter, Jesus is responding to the attitude and actions that are typical of the religious leaders of the day and laments over the future of Jerusalem and their current unwillingness to respond to His message concerning the kingdom of heaven.
