Such is the hatred of humanity towards our creator that we would rather murder him than listen to him. Jesus exposes humanity for what we are. The people of his day were prepared to engage in staggering steps of flawed logic in order to avoid the implications of his works and wisdom. Ultimately they sought to do away with him. Grasping this truth enables us to be clear headed about the world, self aware and amazed at the grace and power of the Lord Jesus.
