    In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus' Messiahship was a secret known only by Jesus himself and the demons whom he encountered. That Jesus was able — with divine help — to resist these temptations brings assurances that any person may overcome evil by cooperating with divine aid, the same as Jesus did. Paul's information, so far as we can determine, must have been obtained from the oral traditions that were passed on to him by those who associated with Jesus. Two elements in his ministry — teaching and healing — were so closely linked together that neither one can be understood apart from the other.

    After a brief return to Galilee, during which he visited the city of Capernaum, Jesus decided to go to Jerusalem. This pattern suggested to me that although modern readers have seen the ancient texts as contradictory, ancient people must not have seen it the same way. Prophetic messianism taught that the earthly kingdom of God would be reached with the coming of the Messiah, or anointed one.
