How did Christ say those who rejected Him reasoned?


"Ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, and say, If we had been in
the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets." Matt.
23: 29,30.
NOTE - While they condemned the action of their fathers in slaying the prophets whom God had sent with
messages of reproof and warning applicable to those times, they soon filled up the measure of the iniquity
of their fathers by putting to death the Son of God. This showed that they would have done as did their
fathers had they lived in their day. Thus we see that present truths are testing truths.
