After seeing that Jesus breaks the mould of religiosity last week, this week we see Jesus meets a man who has been overcome with evil. How will He respond? Will He hide from the man? Will He condemn the man? Will He destroy the man? As Jesus responds to this man and the evil that has overpowered him we see that Jesus has a radical authority that we all desperately need.
Jesus is the most talked about man in history so your response to Christianity isn’t based on whether or not you believe in Him, but what you believe about Him… So today we start looking at His life so that we can make an informed decision about the things He did and said. In this encounter we see Jesus’ desire to take His message of salvation to the people who need it most and how He demolishes our religiosity to do so.
