Read: Luke 12:16-21
In the Bible, we see Jesus, who was so gentle at times (Matt. 19:13-15), would call some fools. Yet, our Lord used this offensive term to describe those He spoke about, especially the Pharisees (Matt. 23:17-19; Luke 11:39-40). Jesus also used the word fool in a parable after warning a man about coveting (Luke 12:13-21).
