Clayton Jennings Preacher
Because of the historic impact 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 mama and a virgin ... seriously? The|narrative of the spotless conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Then let's get into his public ministry. He was "dormant" as far as being outdoors of the public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Bible does not have many recommendations to his youth or teenage years, save for the truth we understand he impressed numerous religious leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus carried out lots of miracles. From turning water into wine to healing a guy born blind. The instant curing of 10 people who were afflicted 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 reality that Peter walked on water. The religious leaders of the day could not describe these miracles. And since they might not comprehend it, they could 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 Exactly who is this male? And where does he derive such mystical but undeniable powers?"
The greatest scandal of Jesus' life isn't really exactly what he did. It's is exactly what he said ... about himself.
" Really really, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has everlasting life, 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 everlasting life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is real beverage." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never stroll in darkness however will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the clayton jennings way, the truth and the life. NO ONE concerns the Father except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any guy or lady nailed to a tree in an clayton jennings uncomfortable death sentence. And a crook's death is what Jesus got. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and humiliated in full view of the leaders of the Jewish clayton jennings religion. Those same individuals in power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. But they did not know the whole story.
Then, three days later on, never ever mind the truth that armed guards were positioned right outside the tomb of Jesus (and that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered Clayton Jennings size than anything else) Jesus' tomb was discovered empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He instructed his disciples to continue the scandal by taking fortunately of the greatest scandal ever told to all countries.
The bright side is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other inadequately. The bright side is that we do not get exactly what we should have. We get grace.
