Wow. JESUS is kind of in-your-face about Himself, isn’t He.
Must have made an impression on the gospel writer; look, he quotes Jesus verbatim many years later!
I suppose the writer had been telling these accounts the whole time verbally, so that kept the events fresh in his mind.
And I’m sure the Holy Spirit helped him remember as well.
I’m so glad I have the Bible!
Bless You God. Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
