Clayton Jennings Preacher
Due to the fact that 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 mama 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 outdoors of the public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Bible does not have numerous referrals to his childhood or teenage years, conserve for the fact we understand 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 recovery a man born blind. The instant curing 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 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 could not describe these miracles. And since they might not understand it, they might not let it stand. They needed 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 guy? And where does he obtain such mysterious but irrefutable powers?"
However the greatest scandal of Jesus' life isn't exactly what he did. It's is exactly what he said ... about himself.
" Extremely genuinely, I tell you, anybody who hears my word and thinks him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, however has actually passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who eat my flesh and consume my blood have everlasting life, 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 walk in darkness however will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the way, the reality and the life. NOBODY comes to Clayton Jennings the Father other than 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 in complete view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those very same individuals in power thought that the scandal died with Jesus. They did not know the entire story.
3 days later on, never ever mind the truth that armed clayton jennings guards were placed right outside the burial place of Jesus (and the reality that the rock in front of clayton jennings the tomb was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' tomb was found empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of clayton jennings Jesus continued. He instructed his disciples to continue the scandal by taking the bright side of the greatest scandal ever told to all nations.
The great news is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for individuals who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other improperly. The excellent news is that we do not get what we deserve. We get grace.
