Trusting Jesus without Understanding

       Jesus now recounted for them the coming of John, the baptism in the Jordan, the marriage feast at Cana, the recent choosing of the six, and the withdrawal from them of his own brothers in the flesh, and warned them that the enemy of the kingdom would seek also to draw them away. After this short but earnest talk the apostles all arose, under Peter‘s leadership, to declare their undying devotion to their Master and to pledge their unswerving loyalty to the kingdom, as Thomas expressed it, ''To this coming kingdom, no matter what it is and even if I do not fully understand it''. They all truly believed in Jesus, even though they did not fully comprehend his teaching.
