The God Who Speaks

“They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.” Mk. 1:21-22

The God who speaks continues to do so in His incarnate form. It’s a necessary, intrinsic extension of His nature. Jesus’ speaking about the Kingdom follows the trajectory from creation, covenants and prophecy that will eventually culminate in the wonder of the finished work of Scripture.

People marveled “at His teaching” and so should we. But, it’s not just that Jesus always had the better argument; it is also amazing that God engages in the argument with us at all.

Thank You, Lord, that it is this way. That You don’t make us grope in the darkness on our own.
