72 The King's Miracles Provoke Different Responses

Two blind men proclaimed Jesus the Messiah and were healed of their blindness.  Jesus casts out a demon who made a man mute and some Pharisees said his power came from Satan.  How can the same man and the same miracle elicit such different responses?

71 Anything the King Touches Becomes Clean

Two females, a child and a woman, are ritually unclean.  The child, because she is dead.  The woman, because she has a blood discharge disease.  Jesus touches the child and raises her from the dead.  The woman touches Jesus and is healed.  Jesus makes the unclean clean.

Alcohol and the Christian (Part 1)

Was the "wine" consumed by the Israelis, Christians, Greeks and Romans what we call "wine" today?

***NOTE***  Due to "technical difficulties" the last few minutes of the audio were not recorded over the church audio/visual equipment.  However, I brought a small digital recorder with me to the pulpit and I captured the whole message.  I have uploaded this audio only recording to YouTube as well.  It may not sound the best but it is easily understandable for those curious to know how the sermon ended.
