Theology is BS, for sure, splitting hair four times lengthwise.
But Jesus is an extremely mental person. For him the mind is not the speculative abstract fake discourse of priests and rabbis.
For him the mind is the intercessor between man, the world and God, and that intercessor is John the Baptist, is Jesus, for Jesus himself who speaks in the name of his father, of his God.
He is not telling you what to do. He is telling you to speak to God through him and his love and thus determine what to do.
