After Jesus had calmed the tumultuous seas the disciples responded by

MAJ-5 - Jesus: Friend of Sinners

In an attempt to criticize the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his critics gave him
one of the greatest compliments you can ever imagine. In Matthew 11:19, they said of
Jesus, that they accused him of being a, “winebibber, a glutton, a friend of tax
collectors, and sinners.” Jesus is indeed the greatest friend a sinner, one who is living in
sin and desires to be saved, has ever had. Those words beautifully illustrate that idea.
In Matthew 11:19, Jesus begins to comment on the people of John's generation,

MAJ-8 - Jesus in Revelation

Jesus said in Revelation 1:18, “I am he who lives and was dead and is alive
forevermore.”
Revelation scares a lot of people, because it contains some language that is a
little unusual compared to the rest of the New Testament. The images of Jesus in the
book Revelation offer comfort and encouragement and hope to every child of God. We
encourage you to get out your Bible and turn to Revelation.

MAJ-7 - The Narrow-Minded Jesus

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the
father except by me.”
As you think about the words of Jesus throughout the New Testament, Jesus, as
it relates to doctrinal matters, salvation, his teaching, was is indeed narrow-minded.
Jesus was open to all who are willing to obey the Gospel, coming to Him. He said, “Not
everybody that says Lord, Lord is going to Heaven but he who does the will of my
Father in Heaven,” Matthew 7:21. And yet, at the same time Jesus said, “Come unto me
all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” We need to think about the narrow-minded
nature of Jesus’ teaching, and exclusivity of some of his principles concerning Christ
himself and Christian living.
