Hear Jesus and beware
Mark 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
Jesus answered the silence of those who had questioned him. Hear him now.
Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
A prophetic word by David, through the Holy Spirit. The Bible is a book of God's truth.
Psa 110:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Mark 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
The common people were not filled with wrong ideas, they wanted to hear the truth. The truth is that the savior would come from God and of the seed of David. He would be greater than king David, because he Is God's Son.
Mark 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
Mark 12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
Mark 12:40 Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
He had the peoples attention, beware of the leaders who say one thing and their hearts and fruit show they are not of God's Spirit. They are the religious rulers, so look at their fruit and see if they are of God. Jesus said that they will be judged a greater judgment. Why? Because they were to guide the people in God's truth.
We are not to blindly follow this type of leaders. Know your Bible and be filled with God's spirit of truth. The Pharisees also were to be watched.
Mat 15:12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
Mat 15:13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
Mat 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
