Jesus Christ, throughout His ministry, when assaulted by His naysayers, brilliantly answered their questions that were meant to entrap and convict; He managed to walk the familiar streets of Israel and evade capture when it all but seemed assured. Jesus did this without breaking any of the laws of God or man! But right at this time of the year that we are in now, the hedge that had been constructed around Him by the Father would now be removed.
