Verse of the Day

Why did the religious leaders in Israel reject Jesus? Was it His message? The Bible says that  the people marveled at His teaching. It was noticeably different. He taught as one who had authority.

Was it His unwillingness to be the type of Messiah that they expected? He wouldn't do things the way they wanted. Their authority and positions were challenged.

There probably is no one answer as to why they rejected Christ but I contend that the most difficult problem that Christ presented them was the power of God which was demonstrated through miracles which His critics could not explain away. Theology they could argue; tradition was on their side; but the blind man who could see - every word the mute man spoke - the smooth healthy skin of the leper - the criple man walking by - the dead man living again like nothing ever happened. These miracles were a real problem.

There was no power in their religion. 

Jesus had something they could not compete with; He had the power of God.

Luke 1:37 - For with God  nothing shall be impossible.

In Christ,

Pastor Ray
