Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.

As a mathematician, inventor, and ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church in America, Mike Slay brings an analytical, conversational, and even whimsical approach to the daily study of God's Word.

The disciples will connect the dots later, when they're emotionally ready.

You can’t grow great faith without sticking your neck out.

At least they wake up.

This is about the kingdom, not the second coming.

The thing that kills prayers is pretending to be perfect.

People are scared or even offended by Jesus’s power. He keeps who He is a secret, while doing things that, in retrospect, will make it obvious. This is all part of preparing his disciples for what’s coming. Some of the events are actually clever exercises for them.

For now, supper will do.

Jesus gives them an advanced lesson.

Jesus can't let anything get in the way of getting crucified.

Faith is the key.

He casts out a demon and all the people of the surrounding country ask Him to leave.

No one is ready for the concept of incarnation. Jesus shows who he is, and the demons know who he is, but for now, he’s just setting things up for a later realization. It’s all just too fantastic.
