Who Exactly Is Clayton Jennings
Since of the historic effect 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 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 beyond the general public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Bible does not have lots of recommendations to his childhood or teenage years, save for the reality 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 healing a guy born blind. The immediate 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 couple of loaves of bread supplied by a young boy. Not to point out that fact that Peter strolled on water. The religious leaders of the day might not explain these miracles. And due to the fact that they could not understand it, they could not let it stand. They needed to make an example of this man who dines with sinners and performs works of marvel.
They asked themselves- "Who Exactly who is this male? And where does he obtain such mysterious and yet undeniable powers?"
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 immortality, and does not come under judgment, however has actually passed from Clayton Jennings death to life." John 5:24
" Those who eat my flesh and consume my blood have immortality, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood holds true 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 way, the reality and the life. NOBODY comes to the Dad except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any guy or lady nailed to a tree in an uncomfortable death sentence. And a criminal's Clayton Jennings death is exactly what Jesus got. Jesus was extremely beaten, tortured and humiliated completely view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those same people in power believed that the scandal passed away with Jesus. They did not understand the whole story.
Then, three days later on, never ever mind the fact that armed guards were positioned right outside the tomb of Jesus (and the reality that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' tomb was found empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples to continue the scandal by taking the bright side of the biggest scandal ever told to all nations.
The great news is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for given and deal with each other badly. The Clayton Jennings great news is that we do not get exactly what we deserve. We get grace.
