What Did Jesus Do? 5

Matthew 13-14

For each passage we'll note who Jesus encountered, whether he initiated the contact, what type of interaction he had with them, whether He took direct action to meet human needs (see Matthew 25:35-36 for examples), whether His "do-ing" was miraculous, and any commands He gave. (See the

introduction page

for this series for more detail.)

It is striking to see how many times Jesus responds with grace, tolerance, and acceptance. He does not ignore the people coming to Him intrusively with their constant requests. He heals them, He teaches them, He answers their questions, He comforts them — He loves them.
