We all know that Jesus had special powers that allowed him to fix problems. When he wanted to board a boat that was out at sea, he walked on the water. When he bumped into people that were possessed by evil spirits, he flushed them out. When his friend Lazarus died, he reanimated him (where is he now?). When 4000 or 5000 people went to a picnic with very little food, he duplicated the food many times. He was never caught short (assumed). Jesus sometimes didn't use his powers. He was kidnapped by the Devil who is supposedly less powerful (Matthew 4:5-8). He got sorrowful and troubled in Gethsemane about his future prospects (Matthew 26:37). He got hungry in the desert (Matthew 4:2). He got hungry as he was leaving Bethany (Mark 11:12). He got thirsty whilst being crucified (John 19:28). He sometimes had to hide from the Jews (John 8:59). He was arrested (Luke 22:54). So why was he selective?
