Throughout the years of Jesus' ministry, we often see Him withdrawing from public notice and bidding His disciples that they should tell no man that He was Jesus the Christ (Messiah) (Matthew 16:20). When He raised the daughter of Jairus, He charged them straitly (strictly) that no man should know it (Mark 5:43). When they came down from the Mount of Transfiguration, He instructed His three disciples who had accompanied Him that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of Man were risen from the dead (9:9). His reason for this can be easily understood. When the 5,000 who had been miraculously fed by two fish and five loaves of bread attempted to make Him a king, He departed again into a mountain Himself alone (John 6:15). When His unbelieving brethren urged Him to shew Thyself to the world. . . . then, Jesus said to them: My time is not yet come (7:4,6).
