    "And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town." Amos 5:13 "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." Some suppose that Jesus did all His miracles for a show, and for advertising His power; ignoring the facts about the people whose hearts were hostile toward Him, that they weren't worthy to hear any more.
