The Gospel According to Bar/Bri

Bar review is starting to mess with my brain. To the point where I'm beginning to see every written passage as a possible exam question. For example, yesterday at Mass, the first reading was:

From Acts 1:1-11
He presented himself alive to them
by many proofs after he had suffered,
appearing to them during forty days
and speaking about the kingdom of God.
While meeting with them,
he enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem,
but to wait for “the promise of the Father
about which you have heard me speak;
for John baptized with water,
but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
When they had gathered together they asked him,
“Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons
that the Father has established by his own authority.

Except that I misread that first italicized word as "profit" instead of proof and immediately began to think of profit a prendre, which everyone knows is a nonpossessory interest in land entitling the holder to enter a servient tenement to take soil or a product of the soil.
Furthermore, a party may only be enjoined when they can show there is no adequate remedy at law and that money damages would not be adequate or that the party would be irreparably harmed if the injunction is not granted.

The Father's "authority' appears to be a jurisdiction issue.

Yeah, it's a sickness. Only 60 days til the Bar Exam is over.
