Because of the historic impact of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a variety of point of views 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."
Then 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, conserve for the fact we understand he impressed numerous religious leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed numerous miracles. From turning water into wine to healing a male born blind. The immediate curing of 10 people who were pestered 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 explain these wonders. And due to the fact that they could not comprehend it, they could not let it stand. They needed to make an example of this male who dines with sinners and performs works of marvel.
They asked themselves- "Who Exactly who is this guy? And where does he derive such mystical but irrefutable powers?"
Nevertheless the biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't really exactly what he did. It's is exactly what clayton jennings he said ... about himself.
" Extremely genuinely, I inform you, anybody who hears my word and thinks 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 eat my flesh and Clayton Jennings drink my blood have immortality, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true beverage." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me clayton jennings 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 comes to the Dad other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any man or lady nailed to a tree in a painful death sentence. And a crook's death is exactly what Jesus received. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and embarrassed in full view of the leaders of the Jewish religious beliefs. Those exact same people in power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. They did not understand the entire story.
Three days later, never ever mind the reality that armed guards were positioned right outside the tomb of Jesus (and the truth that the rock Clayton Jennings 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 to continue the scandal by taking the bright side of the best scandal ever told to all nations.
Fortunately is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other inadequately. The excellent news is that we don't get exactly what we should have. We get grace.
