Know the Time: Israel Turns Away but Blessing Still Comes (12:49-14:24)

In this section the tension with Israel continues to grow, so that by its end the Jewish nation's rejection of Jesus is virtually inevitable. Warnings, rejected sabbath miracles and prophetic laments set the tone. Perhaps typical of the unit is 13:31-35, where Jesus issues a prophetic declaration that Israel's house is now desolate. Its isolation will remain until it recognizes the Messiah. After this section Jesus' attention will turn to instructing his disciples in light of his approaching departure. They must be made ready to live in his absence.
