Fugue-Icons Calendar-Month Movement 08 Temple Tension & Withdrawal

Jesus takes the opportunity to offer commentary on leadership – the good shepherd. Sensing disparagement, the religious authorities become hostile. Jesus continues. the crowds grow hostile. Jesus withdraws to a remote place where John baptized almost three years before. People gather. Jesus teaches them. After a few weeks in the remote area, he tours Perea.
