Uhm... a thought: Jesus said he was anointed to preach to the poor? So... he wasn't anointed to preach to the rich? No wonder the rich don't "get" him.
He said he came to lead the sinners and not the righteous. No wonder the righteous don't "get" him.
He said those who are sick need a physician, a healthy person doesn't need a physician. No wonder the healthy don't "get" him.
Blessed are the poor in spirit. The poor in spirit are often poor (Luke's sermon on the mount seems to equate the two), sick, or aware of their sinfulness. -C
