Part seven. Jesus starts his teaching.

Part seven. Jesus starts his teaching.

After Jesus had spent time, being tempted in the wilderness he began his teaching. This is described in three of the four gospels; all record the same thing but place emphases on different things. But still keeping to the same basic facts.

Mathew chapter 4 verse 12 to 17

Preaching in Galilee

Now when Jesus heard that John had been imprisoned, he went into Galilee. While in Galilee, he moved from Nazareth to make his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, so that what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled:

Part six; Baptism and the Temptation of Jesus

Part six; Baptism and the Temptation of Jesus

As I have said; the four gospels were written some years after Jesus’s death and was written for different people, same news but presented in a different way.

The Baptism and Temptation of Jesus; Mark ch1 v9

Now in those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan River. And just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens splitting apart and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my one dear Son; in you I take great delight.” The Spirit immediately drove him into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, enduring temptations from Satan. He was with wild animals, and angels were ministering to his needs.

Part Five; John the Baptist and the meeting [Baptism of Jesus]

Part Five; John the Baptist and the meeting [Baptism of Jesus]

John the Baptist was a man who went through Galilea Baptising people and asking them to change the ways [There, has been many jokes about him. The typical one is a man standing on the street with a placard saying, “ Repent for the end is nigh”. A much maligned and ridiculed character] Then again John the Baptist, not to mention repent etc, goes on to play an important role in Jesus’s life and teachings.

Not to get ahead of myself, what is crucially missed is the fact that Jesus and John’s Mothers were related?

The horrific news about 7 year old Zainab, raped and murdered in Kasur, Pakistan, has created a public outcry across Pakistan and beyond.

I hope and pray the monster who did this gets what he deserves and Zainab and her family receive justice.

If there's one thing we can all do after this tragic incident is to talk to our children about sexual abuse and it's signs.

The idea of talking to your kid about sexual abuse probably seems worse than even talking to them about sex. But talking to them about sexual abuse is probably one of the most important discussions you will ever have with them.
