He was teaching us a course on Theology and asked us to cross out certain paragraphs in our book.
Then he would pray and ask the Holy Spirit to wipe his memory clean from all the negative teaching that came very close to an atheist point of view.
I believe Jesus saw into the future even if it was an hour away. He did NOT maneuver and set up the stage. He knew in advance what would happen !!
Matthew 17:27 Jesus said, "Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto the tax man for me and thee."
Probably some would say Jesus put the money in the fishes mouth, threw it back and somehow made sure Peter caught the right fish. I would say Jesus KNEW before hand that this would be so.
