The Division of the People Over Jesus

Thursday December 7, 2017

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

The crowd continued to be divided as to who Jesus was. Their divided opinion enabled Him to continue His ministry without being immediately arrested.  When the arresting officers that were sent by the chief priests and Pharisees to arrest Jesus, arrived without Him, they wanted to know, “Why did you not bring Him?” Why did you fail in your mission? The response by the officers showed that Jesus’ teaching had a powerful influence on all who listened to Him. Although they had been officially sent to arrest Him, His teaching had such an impact upon them that they could not carry out their orders.
