Feb. 25. Reaction of the People

Mt. 7:28, 29

The people who were assembled around Jesus and His apostles were amazed at His teaching. How could an humble carpenter, not highly educated speak with such authority? They did not realize that His authority had come from God. When Jesus had finished the Sermon on the Mount, He went into Capernaum, His hometown and was followed by a great multitude of people wanting to hear more and to be healed of their sicknesses.
