Clayton Jennings Spoken Word Artist
Due to the fact that of the historical effect of the life and ministry of Jesus', his life's work was from a variety of point of views on scandal after another.
Case in point, the lowly birth. His mother Mary a teenage mom and a virgin ... seriously? The|story of the immaculate conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Then let's enter his public ministry. He was "dormant" as far as being outdoors of the public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have lots of references to his youth or teenage years, save for the truth we know he impressed numerous religious leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed lots of miracles. From turning water into wine to recovery a man born blind. The instant curing of 10 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 offered by a young kid. Not to mention that reality that Peter walked on water. The spiritual leaders of the day might not discuss these wonders. And because they might not understand it, they could 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 man? And where does he derive such strange and yet undeniable powers?"
However the biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't really what he did. It's is exactly what he said ... about himself.
" Extremely genuinely, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and thinks him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but 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 true drink." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never ever stroll in darkness but will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the method, the fact and the life. NO ONE concerns the Daddy except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous statements like this would get any guy or female nailed to a tree in a painful death sentence. And a wrongdoer's death is what Jesus got. Jesus was extremely beaten, tortured and humiliated in full view of the leaders Clayton Jennings of the Jewish faith. Those very same people in power thought that the scandal passed away with Jesus. But they Clayton Jennings did not understand the Clayton Jennings entire story.
Then, 3 days later, never mind that armed guards were placed right outside the tomb of Jesus (and 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 Clayton Jennings of Jesus continued. He instructed his disciples to continue the scandal by taking fortunately of the greatest scandal ever informed to all countries.
The good news is a story of the scandalous, wreckless love of God, for individuals who rebel, take him for granted and deal with each other poorly. The good news is that we don't get exactly what we should have. We get grace.
