"TELL US PLAINLY"

In the Gospel of John it is recorded that Christ Jesus' hearers once demanded of him (10:24): "How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly."

"Tell us plainly" was the urgent demand. At first such a question, whether asked by Jesus' hearers or by modern questioners, seems reasonable. However, in looking at the question closely, one can see that it was an appeal to Jesus to answer in a manner that the material senses could grasp. Perhaps the Master knew that behind this demand was the hope that the Messiah would be a human leader who would give his followers dominion over worldly conditions on materiality's own terms.
