The complete truth

During the time of Jesus’ teaching, even right up to the resurrection, some of the disciples were still anticipating an earthly kingdom to be restored. Jesus knew they were not ready to understand all he had to say to them but promised that the Holy Spirit would enlighten and “lead you to the complete truth”. We can sometimes have preconceptions of what God ‘should’ do in various situations. If we are open to the Holy Spirit, we too can be shown the “complete truth”, which may not be what we were expecting.
