9. Jesus sent his disciples out with the same repentance message about the Kingdom of God that he and John preached. This was one work, not a work in competition with one another. His disciples were sent out without money--they were to be wholly dependent on God and to have the faith that God would meet their needs. Both John and Jesus caleld on people to give to the poor. God wants us to be charitable. God supplies; hence, we need to have faith that God will supply rather than hoarding our riches to protect ourselves.
