Mark 4:33-34

Jesus explains everything privately to His own disciples.  This is the hidden manna.  This is the table He prepares in the midst of our enemies.

Are you a disciple of Jesus?  Does he explain things privately to you?

What about your disciples?  Do you tell them that Jesus will explain Himself privately in their hearts – or do you retain the role of explainer for yourself?

People do not need us as teachers because every person can have Him as Teacher.  Let’s proclaim Jesus Christ and His instruction, for it is far more edifying than ours – no matter how well-intentioned we are.

The apostles did not try to explain His teaching as much as they explained who He was so that people could listen for His teaching.  We are not better than the apostles, are we?
