Evangelist Clayton Jennings
Because of the historical impact of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a variety of viewpoints on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mom Mary a teenage mommy and a virgin ... seriously? The|narrative of the immaculate conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "inactive" as far as being beyond 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 many 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 recovery a guy born blind. The instant 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 few loaves of bread supplied by a young kid. Not to point out that fact that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not describe these wonders. And because they might not comprehend it, they could not let it stand. They had to make an example of this male who dines with sinners and carries out works of marvel.
They asked themselves- "Who Precisely who is this guy? And where does he derive such mystical but undeniable powers?"
Nevertheless the greatest scandal of Jesus' life isn't exactly what he did. It's is Clayton Jennings what he said ... about himself.
" Really truly, 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 who is clayton jennings passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who consume my flesh and drink 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 ever walk in darkness but will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the way, the fact and the life. NOBODY pertains to the Dad other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous statements like this would get any guy or female nailed to a tree in an agonizing death sentence. And a bad guy's death is what Jesus received. Jesus was extremely beaten, tortured and embarrassed in complete view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those very same people in power thought that the scandal passed away with Jesus. However they did unknown the whole story.
Then, 3 days later, never ever mind the reality that armed guards were placed right outside the burial place of Jesus (and the fact that the rock in front of the burial place was Clayton Jennings more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' burial place was discovered empty. Therefore for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He instructed his disciples clayton jennings site to continue the scandal by taking the great news of the best scandal ever informed to all nations.
The bright side is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for individuals who rebel, take him for given and deal clayton jennings with each other improperly. The bright side is that we do not get what we should have. We get grace.
