The problem was none of the them had the whole story. Instead of digging deeper they just wrote Jesus off. If they had dug deeper, gone deeper than the contradiction they would have seen it wasn't a contradiction at all. But they stopped at what they knew and wrote Jesus off.
What about us? When Scripture or life seems to be in contradiction to what we think God is or what we know Him to be, do we dig deeper and get past that contradiction and find the truth? If we don't we are really missing out on something profound.
