All Things Well

“And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: He maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak” (Mark 7:37).

Jesus, indeed, “hath done all things well.” One strong evidence of His deity is this very fact. No matter how carefully we study His deeds, we can find no flaw in any of them—no deficiency, nothing He should have done differently, or left undone. He never had to apologize or express regrets, as we often at least ought to do. He was always master of every situation. Peter said that He just “went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him” (Acts 10:38).

The same would apply—perhaps even more emphatically—to His words. He never had to speculate or equivocate: “And they were astonished at His doctrine: for He taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes” (Mark 1:22). Jesus never guessed about anything or merely expressed an opinion, as we frequently do. He never suggested a “possible” interpretation. Everything He taught was with absolute authority, for He was (and is) the very Word of God (John 1:1,14).

His words occasionally were harsh and judgmental, when dealing with hypocrisy and false teaching (e.g., Matthew 23:29–33) but more often were kind and forgiving. In fact, “all bare Him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth” (Luke 4:22). Even hardened soldiers, sent to arrest Jesus, returned empty-handed, for, as they said: “Never man spake like this man” (John 7:46).

Indeed, “His word was with power” (Luke 4:32). He was “Jesus of Nazareth . . . a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people” (Luke 24:19). In fact, He was more than a man; He was the perfect man, and the only-begotten Son of God! HMM
