“When Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in their cities.” – Matthew 11: 1

“Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all and ordered them not to make him known. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: ‘Behold, my servant whom I have chosen my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.’” – Matthew 12: 15-18

While Jesus Christ preached to the people about the kingdom of Heaven, he wanted the people to be able to learn about the word of GOD in order to understand the meaning of Jesus. While the prophets had preached about Jesus seen in the previous verse from Isaiah, Jesus wanted the people to know about the importance of the word of GOD in everyday life. Jesus Christ wanted them to be able to feed on the spiritual word of GOD in order to grow spiritually and be able to understand the importance of faith.

Jesus was able to tell his apostles about the importance of understanding the word of GOD and they were able to understand. They understood that he would be able to help them and lead them to understand the importance of GOD in their lives. We are able to see in examples from the Bible that Jesus was able to perform miracles from being able to help individuals that had infirmities, calming the storms, and being able to help the apostles learn the importance of preaching the kingdom of Heaven to believers and non-believers.

We are able to see that Jesus was able to help people understand that GOD cared about them and had not left them. We are able to see that GOD gave Jesus as a path to save us from our sins and be able to obtain salvation. This salvation that is obtained through belief and faith in Jesus as our LORD and Savior. We are able to see in different places in the Bible that Jesus was able to prove what Isaiah had taught.

“Y sucedio que cuando Jesus termino de dar instruciones a sus doce discipulos, se fue de alli a enseñar y predicar en las ciudades de ellos.” -Mateo 11:1

“Al enterarse Jesus de los que planeaban los fariseos, se fue de alli, y mucha gente lo siguio. Jesus sano a todos los que estaban enfermos y les ordeno que no contaran a nadie nada acerca de Jesus. Asi se cumplio lo que DIOS habia dicho por medio del profeta Isaias: ‘ Aqui tienen a mi siervo, mi elegido, mi amado, en quien mi alma se deleita. Pondre mi Espiritu sobre él, y anunciara justicia a las naciones.’”- Mateo 12: 15-18

Mientras Jesus el Cristo predicaba a las personas sobre el reino de los Cielos, queria que las personas supieran sobre la palabra de DIOS para que entendieran el significado de Jesus. Mientras los profetas predicaban sobre Jesus visto en Isaias, Jesus queria que las personas supieran la importancia de la palabra de DIOS en cada dia. Jesus el Cristo queria que pudieran entender las palabras de DIOS como algun alimento espiritual que los ayudaria a crecer espiritualmente y entender la fe.

Jesus pudo decirle a sus apostoles sobre la importancia de entender la palabra de DIOS y pudieron entenderla. Ellos entendieron que Jesus podia ayudarles a entender y que pudieran ver la importancia de DIOS. Vemos en la Biblia que Jesus podia hacer milagros desde ayudar a individuos con enfermedades, calmar las tormentas, y ayudar a entender la importancia de predicar el reino de los Cielos a los creyentes y no creyentes.

Podemos ver que Jesus podia ayudar a las personas a entender que DIOS quiere que las personas aprendan de la palabra y que DIOS los quiere. Vemos que DIOS nos dio a Jesus como un camino para salvarnos de nuestros pecados y obtener salvacion. Esta salvacion es obtenida cuando creemos y con la fe puesta en Jesus como nuestro SEñOR y Salvador. Podemos ver diferentes lugares en la Biblia que Jesus nos demuestra esto en Isaias.
