The Ministry Continues

“Such perceptive and authoritative teaching has obviously won the attention of the multitudes, who have long been disillusioned by the empty ritualism and superficiality of their present religious system.  As Jesus’ fame continues to spread, John the Baptist sends a message to Jesus asking for final confirmation of his messiahship.   Jesus sends a message of reassurance and praises John for his courage and dedication as a servant of God.

No doubt by this time the religious leaders are also becoming increasingly aware of Jesus[‘ extraordinary power.  Instead of accepting it as divine, they accuse Jesus of having power from Satan.”
