Hey Brother,

Sometimes we forget how may times the Hebrews walked around the mountain (wandered in the wilderness) because of their disobedience and rebellious nature, or the many other examples of rebellion on the Bible. And, how many time we, ourselves wander around the mountain as well!

We need to insure there is no misunderstanding of the actions of Jesus. That these actions of His weren’t rebellious, but reconciliatory in nature, and an action that needed to be done…

Misinterpretations of scripture, Biblical themes and culture has caused many to lack the proper understanding of what happened.

Now, some Liberal Theologians, Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics (etc…) will purposefully misinterpret the historical Gospel writings (to discredit them, water them down, and or to twist them into what they are not) in order to cause chaos and turmoil in the Christian community, or to make their position look better. But, the fact is that Jesus taught: from the Old Testament scriptures (as if they had literal authority), by example (to show believers how they are to live) and by using Parables (to teach believers, and befuddle non-believers). Though, some will attempt to make everything He said or taught seem as if it was in the form of allegory, if you study the historical writings, you’ll soon see where they err. Also, EVERYTHING Jesus taught was applicable for His time as well as ours.

Today’s misled, and misleading, would have you believe that Jesus was a rebel, BUT, the rebels were actually the Jewish leadership. There were members of that leadership that listened to the words of Jesus, and followed Him. So, Jesus didn’t just gravitate toward the impoverished, politically incorrect and motley, but, he in fact gravitated toward ANYONE who would listen, obey and follow. He scolded the religious leaders because they should have listed, and didn’t! He told His followers to “listen to what they say, but not do as they do” because they were in a leadership position over them. And He verbally held them (the religious leadership) to task.

So, no matter how you interpret (or misinterpret) the historical Gospels, Jesus wasn’t a rebel, He IS the “Authority”. He surrounded Himself with those who would listen (no matter their station in life), and taught those who obeyed (and continued to obey). He scolded those who refused to listen (and should have known better). And He hasn’t changed…
