  • 28. Today’s Takeaway Up to this point, when it came to “publicity,” what was Jesus’ M.O. (modus operandi or method of operation)?
  • 29. Today’s Takeaway - To a leper he had healed Jesus said ... Mark 1:43-44 And Jesus sternly charged him and sent him away at once, and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone...”
  • 30. Today’s Takeaway - To evil spirits... Mark 3:12 And he strictly ordered them not to make him known.
  • 31. Today’s Takeaway - To the people who witnessed Jesus raising Jarius’ daughter from the dead... Mark 5:43 And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.
  • 32. Today’s Takeaway Luke 19:39-40 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”
  • 33. Today’s Takeaway Matthew 21:10 And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?”
  • 34. Today’s Takeaway John 12:19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.”
  • 35. Today’s Takeaway Jesus was not a victim as he walked the path to the cross. He was going willingly and intentionally. The cross was God’s plan. And in moving toward it with such courage, Jesus demonstrates for us . . .  His desire to honor his Father!  His determination to redeem sinners like us!
