Some of the leaders of the Jewish faith first began to oppose Jesus when he healed a paralyzed man on the Sabbath, but they decided that he had to die when he claimed that he was equal to God.
But the hour of the crucifixion would be determined by the plan of God and not by the plotting of these men.
Jesus’ “hour” had not come and so no one was able to lay a hand on him until the time when his work had been accomplished.
Do we have the patience to wait on God’s time for God’s work to be accomplished among us?
