Notes from the Journey – 41

41. When the Lord learned of this, he left Judea (John 4:3).

As Jesus became aware of the Pharisees and their observation that His crowds had become larger than John’s, He chose to leave the area and return to Galilee. Jesus demonstrated great sensitivity to the timing of His conflict with religious leaders. Thats a good lesson for us. When we are opposed by others, we must also consider the timing of our conflict. Shall we engage conflict just because it’s there? No, but there will come a later time when the conflict must be encountered. For Jesus, the timing connected to His sacrifice. For us, that future conflict may become greater as well.
