Notice they sought Jesus of Nazareth, the lowly son of the carpenter. The gospel is hid to them that are lost.

Now the name Jesus of Nazareth is the name above all creatures, above all creation. Jesus of Nazareth inscribed above his cross.

Jesus of Nazareth is God.

Also, the scriptures were fulfilled even in the details we miss.

Psalms 27:1-2

1 (A Psalm of David.) The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Psalms 35:4

"Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt."

Finally, Saul of Tarsus came confronted by the reality of Calvary.

Acts 22:8

"And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest."

In Verse 8, Jesus answered and said I have told you that I AM: if therefore you are seeking me, and in the Greek, this is called a first-class condition assumed to be true. He is saying since therefore you are seeking me. And check this out because this is a command in the Greek text. He says, "let these (His disciples) go their way:" He is not asking permission. It is a command, imperative mood in the Greek text!

Verse 9: That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

That was back in John Chapter 17 Verse 12. Now He told them that soon they will scatter. That's at the cross. Now He is saying allow these disciples to leave. That is His protection.

Remember He said in John Chapter 10 that the shepherd goes out and he faces the wolf. A hireling won't do that. So not only is it provision that a shepherd gives, but protection.

And here's Jesus fulfilling His prayer that all that the Father has given Him, He has not lost one. And so, they had to let them go. Why? Because Jesus commanded it! So now it is Jesus alone with the 1,000 people that came out to take Him.
