Clayton Jennings Ministry
Because of the historical impact 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 mom Mary a teenage mommy 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 general public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have numerous references to his youth or teenage years, conserve for the reality we know he impressed lots of spiritual leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46 -50).
Jesus performed numerous miracles. From turning water into wine to recovery a male born blind. The immediate curing of ten individuals who were plagued by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a few 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 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 Precisely who is this male? And where does he obtain such mysterious and yet undeniable powers?"
Nevertheless the biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't really exactly what he did. It's is exactly what he stated ... about himself.
" Very truly, I tell you, anybody who hears my word and believes him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, however 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 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 way, the reality and the life. NOBODY concerns the Father other than through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous declarations like this would get any guy or female nailed to a tree in an unpleasant death sentence. And a lawbreaker's death is exactly what Jesus got. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and embarrassed in complete view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those very same individuals in power thought that the scandal died with Jesus. But they did unknown the whole story.
Then, three days later on, never mind that armed guards were positioned right outside the burial place of Jesus (and that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Clayton Jennings Jesus' burial place was discovered empty. And so for 40 days after his resurrection the scandal of Jesus continued. He advised his disciples to continue the scandal Clayton Jennings by taking the excellent news of the biggest scandal ever informed to all countries.
Fortunately is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and deal with each other inadequately. Fortunately is that we don't get what we deserve. We get Clayton Jennings grace.
