He was and is the knowledge
The Israeli people in Galilee, in Judea and on the other side of Jordan had been waiting on Jesus to come forward since John the Baptist said that Jesus was the lamb of God taking the sin of the world on Him. Jesus started his crusade from place to place, from synagogue to synagogue preaching and teaching and people came by the thousands. They came before they had heard a word, this because of John. And when Jesus started to talk, people sensed and felt He knew what he was talking about. Like he was the King of knowledge, like He was the knowledge.
