In just half a chapter we see disciples who…
are unable to cast out a demon;
don’t understand what Jesus is saying;
are too afraid to ask for clarification;
argue with each other;
are lost in their pride;
are embarrassed at their own behaviour;
mistakenly try to stop people on their own team.
Bestseller material for the Christian bookshop this ain’t…
but it’s a team we can join isn’t it?
