    “No one ever spoke the way this man does,” the guards declared.
    —John 7:46 (NIV)
    The mildest assertion of Christian truth today sounds like a thunderclap because the well-polished civility of our religious talk has kept us from hearing much of this kind of thing.
    ... David F. Wells, No Place for Truth, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1993, p. 10 (see the book)
    See also John 7:46; Isa. 1:11-17; 6:10-13; Matt. 7:28-29; 23:34-39; Mark 6:2; Luke 11:42; 20:19-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may Your word go forth in power.
