Jesus had been pointing out the foolish inconsistency of one generation rejecting the truth and killing the prophets, while their children made heroes out of the dead men but continued to ignore the truth they proclaimed (Luke 11:47-49). Jesus made the people of His day responsible for the persecution of all God's prophets over the previous 4,000 years. But that might not seem fair. Why would His generation be responsible for their deaths? Surely, they could not have been involved, as they were not yet born!
