Jesus confronted many of the important issues of His time. He went into the temple, taught the New Testament message, and took action against those who were buying and selling on holy ground. He healed the widow, forgave the adulterer, and by His example, the righteous walked away in shame. He had said, whoever is without sin, cast the first stone (John 8:7 - paraphrase)! Not one pebble, nor one rock was thrown. He who had that right to judge, Jesus Christ, did not cast judgement either. He looked upon the sinner lovingly, and embraced them. He guided them to change and opened blind eyes to see. By Christ alone, was and is salvation attained. Truth is in the New Testament, and a Holy Spirit-guided understanding of it. It must be read without regard for self. For when self enters in, that is when misinterpretations and heresies arise.

Once outside, the detectives advanced up an escalator and to a floor with two elevators. One was labeled for the staff, and the other for guests. In the corner was a plain grey door which led up a staircase. 'Monsieur Leor... ' Jean began. 'Are you up for a challenge?' 'You want to run up the staircase.' Leor concluded, plainly. 'Like schoolboys?' 'Ouais, monsieur, ' Jean replied, with a silly grin. 'You can consider it your preliminary training, if that helps your dignity.

The silver car had been closing in, but just then, it took a sharp turn to the left. Where are they going? Leor wondered. But he decided to keep it to himself. The cabby nodded and ran a hand through his hair. 'Alright. Well, we're here anyways.' Leor saw the winery a few blocks down. 'I thought you said it'd take ten minutes?' 'You made me nervous, ' Claude retorted. 'I drive fast when I'm nervous.' 'You should get that checked, ' Leor replied. 'It can't be good for your kids. Or your wife.

Jean smirked, and delicately swirled the mic in his hands, careful not to make a sound. 'Oui. C'est normal. C'est pas special. I will give you something worthy of Holmes.' Jean set down the mic and proceeded toward the couple. As he approached them, he fiddled with his mustache for a moment, and then pulled it sharply. He winced at the sensation. 'I have it, ' he declared confidently. 'You sir, are a thief.
