Doctor Luke writes that Jesus tells the people to listen carefully to what he says. When they do, they will understand — and then even greater understanding will follow.
But there’s a warning, too. Those who don’t really listen will lose whatever understanding they currently have.
Listening to Jesus results in more understanding; not listening results in confusion.
If we are to understand, we need to listen to him — really listen.
A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
