What Was So Scary About Jesus?

As we go through the book of Acts this summer, I hit chapter 4 last week, and it’s the first time the early movement started to see some opposition.

Acts is a crazy story about the growth and the spread of this movement centered around Jesus. But at the same time, it also tells a parallel narrative of opposition and persecution.

So in this sermon I am interested in exploring what it was about Jesus and the Gospel message that was so scary, so threatening to the systems of the day. Of course, what we also find though, is that these same things were also amazingly compelling to so many people.

The message of Jesus truly does change everything.
