Is Jesus Dangerous?

“And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us. (Acts 5:27-28).

Sadly, our religious leaders oppose the preaching of the gospel and see Jesus as a dangerous threat to our people. It is hard to hear accusations that we are worse than the Nazis: “They killed our bodies, and you are destroying our souls.” But do we preach the gospel in order to harm our leaders and our people? God forbid! Although the phrase “bring this Man’s blood on us” was used in this case in the sense of revenge, it can clearly be understood in a completely redemptive sense.

We continue to preach the gospel to the Jewish people and to the whole world, against all threats, because we yearn with all our hearts to “bring upon them the [redemptive] blood of this Man” so that they “look at Him whom they pierced” and shed tears of life-giving repentance!

“The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging on a tree. God exalted Him at His right hand to be a Leader and a Savior, to give Israel repentance and forgiveness of sins” (Acts 5:30-31).
