Preaching Through John – The Hand of God (John 11:45-12:8)

We know that God works in the world, but what does that actually mean? How does He move in the lives of people to accomplish His will? In John 11-12, we gain a little bit of insight into the answer to that question, as we see the inner workings of the gospel plan in motion.
