John 7:12-13

 

There was much grumbling among the crowds concerning Him; some were saying, “He is a good man”; others were saying, “No, on the contrary, He leads the people astray.” Yet no one was speaking openly of Him for fear of the Jews.

 

 

LESSON

 

Jesus was a controversial subject of conversation at the feast. His presence provoked considerable “grumbling”. Many of the common people from Judea, however, and pilgrims from elsewhere, debated His ministry in private, while suspecting that their leaders opposed Him. According to the Talmud, deceiving the people was a crime punishable by stoning.

 

People will misunderstand you. They will misunderstand me. Exercise grace. Don’t gossip…go to the person.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 29:11
