It is characteristic of mankind to look to the far-away future for the appearing of seers and prophets, or else to acknowledge that such appearing took place in the distant past. That prophetic vision could have taken place long ago, or that it may take place at some future time, seems easy enough to believe, but to acknowledge that one so inspired of God could appear in the present age is, apparently, more difficult.

Jesus was confronted with this condition of doubt. Many of the people of his time had been taught to believe in the coming of the deliverer, or Messiah; but when he came they not only doubted, but scorned and crucified him. "Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?" This question, propounded by the disciples of John, as recorded in the seventh chapter of Luke, was answered by the Master not only by referring to his healing works, but by actually healing the sick and sorrowing in the very hour in which the doubting question was put to him.
