Jesus Visits Jerusalem

Wednesday November 8, 2017

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

In chapter seven Jesus moves from Galilee to Jerusalem to attend the Feast of Tabernacles. This movement prepares the way for confrontation between Jesus and His opponents. For the past months, Jesus’ ministry had been in the relative obscure area of Galilee. Being in the Galilee region was safer and provided a delay in the conflict with the Jewish leadership. However, conflict would rapidly escalate in Jerusalem as He resumes His ministry there.
