Clayton Jennings Spoken Word Artist
Due to the fact that 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 mother and a virgin ... seriously? The|story of the immaculate conception redefines "crisis pregnancy."
Let's get into his public ministry. He was "dormant" as far as being beyond the public eye for the very first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have numerous references to his youth or teenage years, conserve for the truth we understand he impressed numerous spiritual 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 ten individuals who were afflicted by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a couple of fish and a few loaves of bread offered by a young boy. Not to discuss that reality that Peter walked on water. The spiritual leaders of the day could not discuss these wonders. And because they might not understand it, they might 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 derive such mystical and yet undeniable powers?"
The biggest scandal of Jesus' life isn't exactly what he did. It's is what he stated ... about himself.
" Extremely truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and thinks him who sent me has immortality, and does not come under judgment, however has passed from death to life." John 5:24
" Those who consume my flesh and consume my blood Clayton Jennings have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is real food and my blood is true drink." John 6:54 -55.
" I am the light of the world. Whoever follows clayton jennings me will never ever walk in darkness but will have the light of life." John 8:12.
" I am the method, the truth and the life. NOBODY concerns the Father except through me." John 14:6.
Scandalous-blasphemous statements like this would get any male or woman nailed to a tree in an uncomfortable death sentence. And a lawbreaker's death is what Clayton Jennings Jesus received. Jesus was completely beaten, tortured and embarrassed completely view of the leaders of the Jewish faith. Those same individuals in power believed that the scandal died with Jesus. However they did unknown the whole story.
Then, 3 days later, never mind that armed guards were placed right outside the tomb of Jesus (and Clayton Jennings the truth that the rock in front of the burial place was more bouldered size than anything else) Jesus' burial place 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 excellent news of the best scandal ever told to all countries.
The excellent news is a story of the outrageous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other inadequately. The excellent news is that we don't get what we are worthy of. We get grace.
