Evangelist Clayton Jennings
Because of the historic 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 mom and a virgin ... seriously? The|narrative of the spotless 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 many references to his childhood or teenage years, save for the reality we understand he impressed many spiritual leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus carried out numerous wonders. From turning water into wine to healing a guy born blind. The immediate curing of 10 individuals who were plagued 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 discuss that reality that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not explain these miracles. And because they could not comprehend it, they might not let it stand. They had to make an example of this man who dines with sinners and carries out works of marvel.
They asked themselves- "Who Exactly who is this guy? And where does he derive such mystical and yet irrefutable powers?"
Nevertheless the biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't exactly what he did. It's is exactly what he stated ... about himself.
" Really genuinely, I inform you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has 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 Clayton Jennings my flesh holds true food and my blood holds true drink." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the way, the reality and the life. NO ONE concerns the Dad other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any male or lady nailed to a tree in an agonizing death sentence. And Clayton Jennings a clayton jennings wrongdoer's death is exactly what Jesus received. Jesus was brutally beaten, tortured and humiliated in complete view of the leaders of the Jewish religious beliefs. Those exact same individuals in clayton jennings power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. However they did not understand the entire story.
Then, three days later, never mind the fact that armed guards were positioned right outside the burial place of Jesus (and the fact that the rock in front of the tomb was more bouldered 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 the good news of the best scandal ever informed to all countries.
The bright side is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for individuals who rebel, take him for given and treat each other badly. The great news is that we do not get what we should have. We get grace.
