As He heads south to Judea, Jesus sends out an additional seventy(-two) of His disciples ahead of Him to prepare the people for His arrival. With only six months remaining in His public ministry, it was a critical time for the people of Israel to decide if they were for Jesus or against Him.

Over the past several years my friendship with Jesus has grown tremendously by studying His life. The 89 chapters of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John offer far more than surface-level details about our Lord.

Judgment and mercy are meant to fit together like a hand in a glove. If a full picture of God’s heart in judgment and mercy could be painted, judgment would be the canvas on which the colors of mercy would be brushed. It’s not possible to biblically talk about one while ignoring the other. As I discussed in my last post on the judgment of God in the Incarnation, division and judgment centered around the person of Christ was the bold message of John the Baptist. The Incarnation marked...
