Let’s remember with utmost respect and love for The Master that Yeshua was both God, and Man. With Him living as The Perfect Man He had to grow: He didn’t just know everything from the get go: Just like each of us have the chance to, He had to make a habit of saying yes to God and His ways:
Luke 2:40 <And The Child grew and became strong; He was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on Him.>
Isaiah 11:2 <The Spirit of YHVH will rest on Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and strength,
The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of YHVH>
Those things did not come without a price:
Leviticus 25:23 <The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is Mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with Me.>
Remembering Yeshua was also a Man, lets look at verse 40 of Mark 1 when the leper came, on his knees no less, telling Yeshua “I know You can heal me if You want to.” Might Yeshua have thought to Himself, ‘how the heck does this guy know that about Me?’
This is the beginning of Yeshua’s ministry ya know. Put yourself in Our Savior’s shoes for a minute: The book tells us His fame spread throughout the land, but there was a point in Yeshua’s life when His fame was spreading and He did not know it yet. Who knows how long that time was, but that time existed.
Mark 1:28 <News about Him spread quickly over the whole region of Galilee>
Matthew 4:24 < So His fame spread throughout all Syria>
What do both of these verses have in common? ( the answer can be found by reading a few of the surrounding verses.)
Where did Yeshua send the man who He healed in verse 40?
The newly healed leper’s reaction to what Yeshua told him to do, what might have Yeshua learned through that? How was His Father teaching, warning, and growing His Son’s understanding?
Holy Spirit we ask You to guide us and allow us to peer into Yeshua’s mind as we read this passage and find a bit of nutrition for Your Spirit in us.
I want to hear what you all gather from this. I was honored with a beautiful blossoming from this passage and that blossoming is only one of many view points to be gleaned from in this scripture. Together we can put many more of the pieces together! Be open with each other, comment, and share please. Be kind and understanding of one another’s differences while at the same time sharpening one another respectfully.
Does Gleaning The Scriptures fill you in a way that is different than that of the common religious organizations you have meandered across? We hope so. My goal is to show you truth that God is sharing with me directly. If you feel lead consider contributing. You can give as little as 1 dollar per post (every other week). All contributions are appreciated.
