NEW SUMMER SERMON SERIES

Rebel Rabbi:  Bad Behaviors of an Untamed Jesus
The Son of God had habits and behaviors considered by some in his day to be mildly annoying at best and blatantly sinful at worst.  Jesus’ manners most likely would offend some even today.  Some of these bad habits were viewed as sins against Torah.  Some were seen as bad habits of hygiene and holiness.  Others were considered downright rude.  However, all of the “bad habits” of Jesus would reveal truths about God’s love and message vital for us.

Would the Rebel Rabbi offend our delicate sensitivities today?  If not, maybe we’ve watered down the point of His message.  If not, maybe we’ve whitewashed the scandalous nature of the Gospels.  Jesus the Truth came to trouble the world with truth; raw, unadulterated, shocking truth.  Maybe learning to be “bad” like Jesus in the eyes of the world, we can learn to live “good” for the Kingdom of God.
