Because of the historical effect of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a number of viewpoints on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mother Mary a teenage mother and a virgin ... seriously? The|narrative of the immaculate conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "dormant" as far as being beyond the public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have lots of recommendations to his childhood or teenage years, conserve for the fact we understand he impressed many spiritual leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed numerous miracles. From turning water into wine to healing a guy born blind. The instant treating of ten individuals who were plagued by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a couple of fish and a few loaves of bread offered by a young boy. Not to mention that truth that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not explain these miracles. And because they might not understand it, they might not let it stand. They had to make an example of this guy who dines with sinners and carries out works of wonder.
They asked themselves- "Who Precisely who is this male? And where does he obtain such mystical but irrefutable powers?"
Nevertheless the biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't what he did. It's clayton jennings is what he stated ... about himself.
" Extremely genuinely, I inform you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, but has actually passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who consume my flesh and drink my blood have everlasting life, and clayton jennings info I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh holds true food and my blood is real beverage." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows clayton jennings me will never walk in darkness however will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the method, the truth and the life. NOBODY pertains to the Father except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any man or lady nailed to a tree in an agonizing death sentence. And a bad guy's death is exactly what Jesus got. Jesus was brutally beaten, tortured and humiliated completely view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those very same people in power believed that the scandal died with Jesus. They did not understand the whole story.
Then, 3 days later, never mind that armed guards were positioned right outside the burial place of Jesus (and that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' tomb was found empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples clayton jennings site to continue the scandal by taking fortunately of the greatest 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 given and treat each other poorly. The good news is that we do not get exactly Clayton Jennings what we should have. We get grace.
