The Truth

and on the sabbath Jesus entered the synagogue and taught.
The people were astonished at his teaching,
for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.?
 Mk 1:21

Have you ever had to give a speech in front of a large group of people?

You go over and over your presentation.

If you are not too familiar with your topic, you become a little nervous and it is likely to show in how you deliver your speech.

On the other hand, if you know your topic like the back of your hand, have firsthand knowledge and believe in your topic; then you almost don’t have to practice your speech. You own it.

Well that’s how it was with Jesus at the temple.

The people were astonished!

Who is this kid? Isn’t he Joseph, the carpenter’s son?

Of course, Jesus spoke with authority.

He is the way,  and the TRUTH.
