The Golden Opportunities of Interruptions



“Again and again during his earthly ministry Jesus was interrupted; namely, in his speaking to a crowd, conversing with his disciples, traveling, sleeping, and praying  The fact that none of these intrusions floor him, so that for the moment he would be at a loss what to do or what to say, shows that we are dealing here with the Son of man who is also the Son of God!  What we would call an ‘interruption’ is for him a springboard or take-off point for the utterance of a great saying, or for the performance of a marvelous deed, revealing his power, wisdom, and love.  What for us would have been a painful exigency is to him a golden opportunity.”  –William Hendricksen “Matthew” (Banner of Truth) p. 431
