When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. Matt 27:1
What was the great threat Jesus posed to everyone?
He healed the sick and lame.
He gave sight back to the blind and hearing to the deaf.
He cast demons out of the lives of those they had bondage over.
Those things seemed good.
Therefore, the real threat must have been His teaching. It was radically different from the normal teaching of the priests, scribes, Pharisee and Sadducee’s.
They saw themselves as being above the people. They believed they were different, special, and blessed by God.
Jesus makes everyone equal. His teachings show the existence of sin in every life and the need for grace and forgiveness in every life.
That is why people still plot against Jesus to put Him to death today.
His teaching isn’t in-line with the belief of the humanist or atheist. The agnostic could care less but does nothing to actively seek Him.
Jesus’ doctrine is a danger to all-inclusive tolerance, that is, the idea you can live any lifestyle you want and God will just love you into heaven without any need for forgiveness or change.
The ACLU wants Him dead and in a box. They tolerate you opening it up in the privacy of your home or just in your church. Do not dare to talk about Him openly in public.
The plot against Jesus continues today.
What is the great threat He poses?
