Due to the fact that of the historic impact of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a number of perspectives on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mom Mary a teenage mommy and a virgin ... seriously? The|narrative of the spotless conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "inactive" as far as being beyond the general public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have numerous references to his youth or teenage years, save for the truth we understand he impressed lots of spiritual leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed lots of wonders. From turning water into wine to recovery a man born blind. The immediate treating of ten individuals who were afflicted by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a few fish and a couple of loaves of bread provided by a young kid. Not to mention that truth that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not discuss these wonders. And since they might not understand it, they might not let it stand. They needed to make an example of this man who dines with sinners and carries out works of wonder.
They asked themselves- "Who Exactly who is this male? And where does he derive such mysterious but irrefutable powers?"
However the greatest scandal of Jesus' life isn't exactly Clayton Jennings what he did. It's is exactly what he said ... about himself.
" Really really, I inform you, anyone who hears my word and thinks him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who consume my flesh and consume my blood have immortality, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh holds true Clayton Jennings food and my blood holds true beverage." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness however will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the way, the fact and the life. NO ONE concerns the Father other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any guy or female nailed to a tree in a painful death sentence. And a lawbreaker's death is exactly what Jesus received. Jesus was extremely clayton jennings beaten, tortured and humiliated completely view of the leaders of the Jewish religion. Those exact same individuals in power thought that the scandal died with Jesus. They did not know the entire story.
Three days later on, never ever mind the fact clayton jennings that armed guards were positioned right outside the tomb of Jesus (and the truth that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' burial place was discovered empty. Therefore for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He instructed his disciples to continue the scandal by taking the excellent news of the best scandal ever told to all countries.
The great news is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other badly. Fortunately is that we do not Clayton Jennings get what we should have. We get grace.
