-“One day, as he was teaching, Pharisees and teachers of the Law, who had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, were sitting there.
And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick.”-
From every village
And from Judea.
And from Jerusalem.
My understanding of Jesus has always been as a rebel – a nice outcast, a good little boy.
I have never thought of him as having commanded respect, as being a strong man physically, of being sorry after by Pharisees and Law makers.
He doesn’t sound poor.
