Clayton Jennings Preacher
Since 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 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 outside of the general public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Bible does not have many recommendations to his childhood or teenage years, save for the reality we know he impressed lots of religious leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus carried out many wonders. From turning water into wine to healing a guy born blind. The immediate treating of 10 people who were plagued by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a couple of fish and a couple of loaves of bread provided by a young boy. Not to point out that truth that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not describe these miracles. And due to the fact that they could not understand it, they might not let it stand. They had to make an example of this guy who dines with sinners and performs works of wonder.
They asked themselves- "Who Precisely who is this man? And where does he derive such strange and yet undeniable powers?"
The most significant scandal of Jesus' life isn't really clayton jennings what he did. It's is what he stated ... about himself.
" Very really, I inform you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, however has passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who consume my flesh and drink my blood have immortality, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh holds true food and my blood holds true beverage." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never ever walk in darkness however will have the light of life." Clayton Jennings John 8:12.
" I am the method, the truth and the life. NO ONE concerns the Dad except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous statements like this would get any guy or lady nailed to a tree in an unpleasant death sentence. And a crook's death is exactly what Jesus received. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and humiliated completely view of the leaders of the Jewish religion. Those same people in power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. They did not know the entire story.
Then, 3 days later on, never mind that armed guards were positioned right outside the burial place of Jesus (and the reality that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' burial place was found empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples to continue Clayton Jennings the scandal by taking fortunately of the biggest scandal ever told to all countries.
Fortunately is a story of the scandalous, wreckless love of God, for individuals who rebel, take him for approved and treat each other badly. The good news is that we do not get what we should have. We get grace.
