Know God in a Year #49 Jealousy

07/04/2019

John’s popularity is waning, and Satan sees an opportunity to stir up rivalry. So some rabbis “notice” to John’s disciples that Jesus’ crowds are growing, while John’s are dwindling daily. “Why should Jesus’ disciples baptize?” they ask. “That’s John’s thing.” Upset and defensive, John’s disciples ask him if he is aware that Jesus’ disciples are baptizing–that […]

John’s popularity is waning, so Satan sees an opportunity to stir up rivalry. Some rabbis ask John’s disciples why Jesus’ disciples should baptize, since that is John’s thing. They “notice” Jesus’ crowds growing, while John’s are dwindling daily.

#25 Jesus’ Identity

05/16/2013

The critical decade for identity is considered to be age 16-26, being built on the foundation of birth to 7. Did Jesus identity form his religion? Or his religion form his identity? Hard to say; he was connected to God from birth, forming both his identity and religion. Connected from birth? Yes, he was the one […]
