Jesus the Listener?

good-listenerWas Jesus a good listener?

I’m preparing a leadership training workshop for members of the Thames Valley churches of Christ. The topic is, “Listening like Jesus” and it is focussed on listening skills.

I am convinced that Jesus was an excellent listener, but the scriptures demonstrating this are sparse.

So my question is, do you see Jesus as a good listener? And if so, what persuades you that this was a strong part of his character?

I would greatly value your thoughts. Please leave a comment below this post.

Many thanks, and God bless,

Malcolm

A Little Bit Of Luke: Part 6

A Little Bit Of Luke: Part 5 (video)

Why do we have so much information about John “the dipper” (see Josephus)? Isn’t the Gospel about Jesus? Perhaps Luke had a reason for giving John so much airtime, but what was it?

References to John in Acts: Acts 1:5, 22; 10:37; 11:16; 13:24; 18:25; 19:3–4

The reference from Josephus quoted in the recording: http://www.livius.org/sources/content/josephus-on-john-the-baptist
