Celestial Commentary – Scene 5 – Chief Priests & Scribes [5/5]

Angel 1
Ok – here's the one thing I don't understand...
Angel 2
(Mockingly) The one thing?
Angel 1
Oi – I'm being serious! Chief priests. Scribes – you know the top notch theologians.
Angel 2
I wouldn't exactly call them top-notch? We've seen stuff they haven't even begun to dream of...!
Angel 1
Yes – but they know their scriptures. You remember how the wise men turned up? They had all answers to their questions. But they couldn't even be bothered to go the 4½ miles to see the messiah? To see the one that the Almighty promised would come to save them?
Angel 2
(Thoughtfully) Once again, you have a point. (Pauses) It was the most significant event since … well ... since the world was created.
Angel 1
What makes someone so indifferent to what the Almighty is doing?
Angel 2
Beats me – I mean, we've seen bucket loads of this kind of indifference – but still I'm never ready for it.
Angel 1
It's like they just think it's a puzzle or a story. Or for the fanatics.
Angel 2
They spend their days look so “righteous” and respectable. But their hearts are colder than something … something that's really, really cold.
Angel 1
It's like they ignore the treasure that the Almighty offers because they're too busy chasing the wind. They play with the wrapping paper, and throw out the present.
Angel 2
Humans. (Unimpressed) Huh.
Angel 1
Hey – careful how you say that – the Almighty's pretty fond of them, you know...
