From The Lips of Children and Infants, You Have Ordained Praise (Remez/Kesher part 2). Scripture Kung Fu Friday!

When the children shouted “Hosanna” to Jesus in the temple and the chief priests and teachers of the law became indignant (Matt. 21:15), Jesus responded by quoting Psalm 8:2: “From the lips of children and infants, you have ordained praise.” The religious leaders’ anger at Jesus can be better understood when we realize that the next phrase in the Psalm reveals why children and infants offer praise, because the enemies of God would be silenced. The religious leaders realized that Jesus was implying that they were God’s enemies by using the technique of “remez” or “kesher connection.”

For a more detailed discussion of the Remez/Kesher connection technique and it’s incredible brilliance, please refer to my first post in the “Scripture Kung Fu Friday’s” category entitled, “The Son of Man Came To Seek and Save The Lost.”
