Who was jesus talking to?

We’ve all seen it. An accidental conversation. You hear someone and think they are talking to you, but really they are speaking with a friend on their bluetooth headphones. Or maybe you are in a crowded place and someone shouts your name. Sometimes even in your own home someone can be talking to you for a long time before you even realize you are a part of the conversation.

In the gospel accounts of Jesus’ life, Jesus spends time talking with religious leaders, blue collar workers, friends, soldiers, the sick, the possessed and more. How does who he is talking to change what he is talking about? And where might we find ourselves in those conversations. Maybe Jesus has been talking to us more than we even realize.
