Read the Bible in a year by reading John 7:28--53 today How Did Jesus Speak? By Don Ruhl The Pharisees sent officers to arrest Jesus. However, the officers came back empty-handed. When they went to where Jesus was teaching, they heard His words, and concluded that they could not arrest Him. He was not what the Pharisees were saying about Him. Therefore, when the Pharisees questioned the officers, here is what happened. 46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this Man!" (Jn. 7:46). Do you realize how complicated Jesus could have made Himself sound? He truly could have paraded His knowledge before the world. Is that what He did? Are you impressed with His knowledge? I have never heard anyone say how impressed they were with the knowledge of Jesus. Yet, we all know that He knows everything. Jesus did not parade His knowledge. He did nothing to exalt Himself. He paraded the Father, exalting Him before the people. What about me, do I try to impress people with my knowledge or some other attribute of myself or do I point them in another direction, preferably upward?
