Jesus faced certain hostile religious leaders of his time. They were not particularly vicious or unprincipled men. They saw him as a dangerous liberal who went about advocating new religious doctrines and moral values. On one occasion they tried to trick him by getting him to explain why he did not follow the popular teachings of John the Baptist. But Jesus saw through their trick question and refused to answer by asking them a trick question in return. We can learn from Jesus even when it comes to how we answer questions.
