Here is Jesus, surrounded by pressures on all sides. His own followers don’t yet really understand what he’s doing. People are badgering him from every direction to heal them, to cast out evil spirits, to be there for them in their every need. At the same time, opposition is growing. Religious pressure groups are stirring up trouble and they demand a sign. Some are even saying he’s in league with the devil. He knows where it’s all leading. And still he goes on.
