03/31/19 – Luke 9:7-27; Psalm 72:1-20; Proverbs 12:8-9
In the passages from Luke there is one very short statement that speaks to me 0f the overwhelming extent of Jesus’s ministry at this point:
Luke 9: 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was going on. And he was perplexed because some were saying that John had been raised from the dead, 8 others that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had come back to life. 9 But Herod said, “I beheaded John. Who, then, is this I hear such things about?” And he tried to see him.
Jesus ministry, His teachings and His miracles had attracted the attention of the ruler of Galilee and Perea, Herod (Antipas.) So much so that Herod “tried to see Jesus.”
We are blessed with the complete and inspired Word of God. Do we retain the desire to continue to see and be with Jesus via our reading of the inspired word?
