Clayton Jennings:The Scandalous Life of Jesus

//Clayton Jennings:The Scandalous Life of Jesus

The Scandalous Life of Jesus & New Spoken Word Album “Goodbye Religion”

Because of the historical impact of the life and ministry of Jesus’, his life’s work was from a number of perspectives on scandal after another.

Case in point, the lowly birth.  His mother Mary a teenage mom and a virgin…seriously?  The |narrative of the immaculate conception redefines “crisis pregnancy.”

Then let’s get into his public ministry. He was “dormant” as far as being outside of the public eye for the first thirty years of his life. Scripture does not have many references to his childhood or teenage years, save for the fact we know he impressed many religious leaders in the temple at a young age (Luke 2:46-50).

Jesus performed many miracles. From turning water into wine to healing a man born blind. The immediate curing of ten people who were plagued by leprosy. The raising of Lazarus from the dead, the feeding of thousands with a few fish and a few loaves of bread provided by a young boy. Not to mention that fact that  Peter walked on water.  The religious leaders of the day could not explain these miracles. And because they could not understand it, they could not let it stand. They had to make an example of this man who dines with sinners and performs works of wonder.

They asked themselves-  “Who Exactly who is this man?  And where does he derive such mysterious and yet irrefutable powers?”

However the biggest scandal of Jesus’ life isn’t what he did.  It’s is what he said…about himself.  

“Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life.”  John 5:24

The truth about clayton jennings scandal

“Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. ”  John 6:54-55

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12

“I am the way, the truth and the life.  NO ONE comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

Scandalous-blasphemous statements like this would get any man or woman nailed to a tree in a painful death sentence.  And a criminal’s death is what Jesus received.  Jesus was brutally beaten, tortured and humiliated in full view of the leaders of the Jewish religion.  Those same people in power thought that the scandal died with Jesus. But they did not know the whole story.

Then, three days later, never mind the fact that  armed guards were positioned right outside the tomb of Jesus (and the fact that the rock in front of the tomb 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 instructed his disciples to continue the scandal by taking the good news of the greatest scandal ever told to all nations.

The good news is a story of the scandalous, wreckless love of God, for people who rebel, take him for granted and treat each other poorly. The good news is that we don’t get what we deserve. We get grace.
