In the course of his three-year ministry Christ Jesus healed the sick, raised the dead, and regenerated the sinner. His healing work was conclusive. It revealed an understanding of God and His laws that caused the people to marvel. Never before had they been brought so close to God as they were by this holy and humble man from Nazareth. He gave them health, confidence, and a comforting assurance of divine Love such as they had never before experienced. Jesus was beloved by the people, but his teaching provoked the envy and hatred of the Pharisees and the learned men engaged in ritualistic worship.

There was something divinely attractive and obviously true in Jesus' words. Moreover, he did not express conflicting human opinions. His emphasis was on the fact that it was his Father who did the works and that his part was to see the works of God manifest in men. There was nothing difficult or complicated in the simple things he said, yet they were often so spiritually profound that the theologians failed to understand them.
