MISUNDERSTOOD

October 23, 2021

Jesus spent the last three years of His earthly life doing ministry, and during that time, He was misunderstood by most of the people with whom He came in contact. Unfortunately, these individuals did not understand His earthly assignment was to save the lost by bearing their sins and to destroy Satan’s works, for God did not send His Son to the earth to become the political, revolutionary ruling King for that time.

In the Old Testament, references were made about a king being born from the Jewish lineage (Deut.18:15; Psalms 22:27-31; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, 11:1; Jer. 23:5-6; Micah 5:2). When Jesus showed up on the scene with His profound teachings, healings, and miracles, the people assumed that He possibly could be the King that had come to exact judgment on their Roman oppressors and deliver them from the Roman dictatorship. Thus, when the people attempted forcefully to take Him and make Him their King, He withdrew from them for His assignment was not about gaining Israel’s independence (John 6:15).

Though John the Baptist was the forerunner for Jesus who prepared the people for the one that was coming that was greater than him, He too questioned Jesus’s authenticity after a while. Imprisoned by Herod Antipas, John sent his closest disciples to Jesus to ask Him, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another? Apparently, John wanted Jesus not only to proclaim Himself the Messiah but to be militant in His actions.

The religious leaders, the Sanhedrin council, the Pharisees, and the Sadducees hated Jesus because He claimed to be the Son of God, He healed on the Sabbath, and He did not follow their strict laws and customs. Additionally, they thought Jesus wanted to be King of the Jews, for which they strongly objected and had Him crucified.

Sadly, Jesus’s disciples, who sat under His tutelage for three years and were privy to teachings and revelations pertaining to the kingdom, misunderstood Him. Jesus had continually shared His assignment with them, yet before His ascension, the last question recorded that they asked Him was, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”

Unlike the people that lived during the ministry of Jesus, we have both Old and New Testament from which to glean. Thus, we understand God’s purpose for sending His Son to the earth and the sufferings He had to endure to carry out His mission. Jesus provided salvation to all that would receive Him as their Lord and Savior, and I am grateful that I can be counted in that number. I pray that you have not misunderstood and that in the future, we will be with our ruling King forever.
