From this passage, we will see the MOVEMENT of Jesus from the Southern part of Israel to the Northern part of Israel. As always, WHATEVER Jesus did or WHEREVER He went was all part of GOD’S DIVINE PLAN. We could therefore say that this was a DIVINE DETOUR.
DIVINE DETOURS always have a purpose and this is what we can conclude when it comes to Jesus’ NORTHWARD movement. Here’s our 3 point outline:
I. The Divine Detour & its Cause – vv. 12 – 13
II. The Prophetic Fulfillment of the Divine Detour – 14 – 16
III. The Message in the Divine Detour – v. 17
DIVINE DETOURS always have a purpose and this is what we can conclude when it came to Jesus’ NORTHWARD movement.
This movement CREATED such a STIR and accomplished God’s purposes and more than that it FULFILLED BIBLICAL PROPHECY – proving once again that Jesus is the PROMISED DAVIDIC KING and MESSIAH.
As ponder on Jesus’ DIVINE DETOUR, let us also reflect on our own DIVINE DETOURS and rest in the SOVEREIGNTY and WISDOM of God.
