Jesus teaches that evidence of what God is doing in our time in history is as plain as a brilliant red sunset. But that does not mean that those signs are easy to understand. The experts in religion in Jesus's day were baffled by the signs of the kingdom of God that stared them in the face. Expert Bible knowledge is necessary, but there is much more to it than that. Disciples are expected to learn how to listen to God as he leads his Church through each season of history.
