Jesus Meets Desperate People in Desperate Situations

Seedbed - Seven Minute Seminary

The Gospel of John includes seven signs that testify to the identity and vocation of Jesus as the Messiah. The first one, which occurs at the wedding at Cana, happens in the midst of desperation. In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Jessica LaGrone shows us how miracles in the Gospels are preceded by desperate situations, which points to the care and sufficiency of our Lord Jesus.
