GOD’S LOVING PLAN TO SAVE US: 神拯救我们的慈爱计划：
On one day, Jesus called John the Disciple, Andrew, and Simon Peter to be his disciples. On the next day, Jesus called Nathanael and Phillip to become disciples. On the third day Jesus took them all to a wedding in Cana. Jesus’ earthly ministry had begun. His time on earth was almost over. But His time to die to save us, had not yet come. He had many other things to do first..
We heard last week that Jesus celebrated the Passover at age 12, and found an audience for His message in that Temple. After visiting His family for a few days, He again attends the Passover celebration. His work had now begun. He teaches and performs miracles in Jerusalem.
Jesus showed His ownership of His Temple. Remember that God had set up this place of worship during the days when the Jewish people were wandering in the desert. God also told His people how He wanted them to remember this time in their lives with a Passover celebration. He wanted them to worship Him in this Temple.
Most of all, He wanted all people to know that He was the Lamb of God come to save them and take them to heaven. Listen to the words in John that tell us how He wanted them to believe in Him.

The disciples begin to baptize those who repent of their sins. Read John 3:22-26. What was the envy of John the Baptist’s disciples?
