Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 54

Christ’s message at this time (as always) was a very bold message concerning repentance and salvation. Jesus was addressing the problem of sin “head on.” And he was addressing the only way to rid themselves of sin which was to acknowledge who he was and sacrifice everything. As a result of this bold message the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. As he continued to boldly speak truth the interest of the lost was stirred and they found themselves inexplicably drawn to him.
