Jesus Challenges Us

Jesus Challenges Us

Speaker: Stephanie O'Brien

Series: Led by Jesus

Jesus leads us by showing us what God is like and calling us to conversion. A prophet is a messenger sent by God, a person who speaks for God. He or she witnesses to God, calls people to conversion, and may also foretell the future. Prophets often are killed for their message. Jesus fits this description. He is none other than the Word of God in the flesh. He called the world to turn from sin and return to the Father and was put to death for it. In Scripture Jesus is presented as a prophet. Crowds identified Him as “Jesus the prophet” (Matthew 21:11). He spoke of Himself as a prophet: “No prophet is accepted in His own native place” (Luke 4:24). He foretold His passion and resurrection.
