Where the crowds are

The crowds gathered around a charismatic speaker, but serious questions were being asked.

This happens in both of today’s readings, as the crowds gather around the prophet Jeremiah in the first reading (Jeremiah 26:1-9) and around our Lord in the Gospel (Matthew 13:54-58).

In both cases, serious questions are being asked, but right answers seem beyond the reach of the crowds.
