Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 26

26. But Jesus would not entrust himself to them for he knew all men (John 2:24).

John’s somewhat cryptic words reveal that Jesus held His identity from those around Him in these early days. His knowledge of people caused him to know that if those who opposed Him connected the dots, they would seek to remove Him prematurely. At the same time, those who followed Him were not ready for such revelation. Their inability to keep such information would escalate conflict and keep Him from making them into disciples. Sadly, Jesus could not trust any of them with the deepest truth He carried.
