Today's qt reminds me of the Pharaoh whose hearts God hardened so that Jews go out of Egypt. Much to Pharaoh's own desires, God decides to use the Pharaoh for his glory. In the Pharaoh's case, he didn't even have a choice at the end when his heart was hardened by God. In today's case of the Pharisees, they could still repent and turn around, yet they continue on their way to kill Jesus. And again, God decides to use these Pharisees to do what must be done through Jesus to redeem the nation and much more. It's good to know that Jesus makes even the bad things be used for good.
