Evangelist Clayton Jennings
Due to the fact that of the historical impact of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a variety of perspectives on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mom Mary a teenage mama and a virgin ... seriously? The|story of the spotless conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "dormant" as far as being beyond the public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have numerous recommendations to his childhood or teenage years, conserve for the fact we understand he impressed many 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 guy born blind. The immediate curing of ten people who were afflicted by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a few fish and a few loaves of bread offered by a young kid. Not to discuss that reality that Peter walked on water. The spiritual leaders of the day could not describe these miracles. And since they might not comprehend it, they could 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 Precisely who is this guy? And where does he derive such mysterious and yet undeniable powers?"
The most significant scandal of Jesus' life isn't what he did. It's is 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, however has actually passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who eat 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 is real clayton jennings drink." 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." John 8:12.
" I am the method, the fact and the life. NO ONE comes to the Dad other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any man or woman nailed to a tree in a painful death sentence. And a criminal's death is exactly what Jesus received. Jesus was extremely beaten, tortured and embarrassed completely view of the leaders of the Jewish religion. Those very same people in power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. They did not understand the whole story.
3 days later, never ever mind the fact that armed guards were placed 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. Therefore for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples to continue the scandal by taking the bright side clayton jennings of the biggest scandal ever told to all countries.
The great news is a story of the scandalous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for approved and deal with each clayton jennings info other badly. The bright side is that we do not get exactly what we are worthy of. We get grace.
