John was to the point in all that he taught and preached it seems. Herod was not happy with John (you can see it in verse 19) because John was telling him that it was wrong for Herod to be with his brother's wife. Later you will read of Herod having John beheaded because of his brother's wife's planWhy didn't Herod like John? Herod didn't like John because John spoke alot of trurth and some of his trurth angerd Herod becuase Herod thought his rules would be abolished when Jesus came.Correct!How old was Jesus when he started His ministry? Jesus was 30 years oldMatthew, Mark, Luke and John are called the Gospel's. Each book is a different view point of Jesus life, death, and resurrection for us. It is great to see His life from the different views because we get a better picture of what is happening. I always think of it as four different people seeing the same event will tell four different stories that will be very similar but each will notice things that another did not.A few questions
Ive read a bit of Matthew but this chapter is very simular to one of the chapters i read. Why is that? and there are more details in this chapter then in the chapter in matthew it seems.For a Jew it was very important to know your lineage. Even though Jesus was only Joseph's adopted son, we get Joseph's lineage all the way back to Adam (the first man created by God). Actually the genealogy goes all the way back to the "son of God". It is written that Jesus is the "second Adam".Why does it tell us all the son's? and why is there so many son's? what is the suffifence of all of this?
There are so many because these are the generations of mankind
