    because we are all 'human' and from time to time we all have doubts; John's problem was as simple as that

    Nick Nkole, i think it was because John the Baptist was in prison by now and cut off from the rest of the world only hearing rumors. there was no way for him to verify what he was hearing inside,
  • Nick Nkole
    Why did John question if Jesus was what they had expected should come?

    what do i think of Luke ..... ? what i think is - it's not what i think of Luke; because 'Luke' is part of God's word - it's what Luke (God) thinks of me. I didn't 'choose' God; He chose me.

    I cannot tell you what i think of 'Luke' because to God - it does not matter.

    In Luke 7:39 The accuser, Satan, was there sending the Pharisees as his agent, to accuse the woman because of her longstanding sin. They are there to watch here grave of sin, and to keep here under the oppression of guilt mind set. But this woman, knew something greater than her guilt mind set, somebody is there, in the midst of her accusation, who can lift her from grave of sin, by His power.

    I love Luke chapter seven because Christ did so much in such little time, besides the resurrection of Christ the widow of Nain is my favorite instance of resurrection because she had everything to loose if Christ had not brought her son back to life. Also the fact that Christ had compassion on her.
