Its evident throughout Johns record of Jesus life that Jesus didnt explain everything He said or did. People didnt like it then and they dont like it now. People want to understand. They want to make sense of things. But, the message today is the same as it was then. Jesus says, Youve gotta come through me to the Father. Im the Way. Its not through understanding. Its through ME. Christianity isnt about understanding. Its about being humble. Its not about knowing things or making sense of things or understanding how its going to turn out or how it all fits. Its about having a humble heart.God was there with them. Right there! Yet they missed Him because they approached Him with their brains. Obedience is what matters, not understanding. When you approach God with your brain, you cant get your hands around anything. So, because they approached Him with their brains, Jesus let them be confused.___Have a bit more time here, been reading this teaching and considering what it means to know Jesus the person. Jesus is the way, He, Himself is the way, not a doctrine, but the way to the Father!! in HimEdit:this is from the teaching "Jesus Offends Our Minds In Order To Get Our Hearts"
Jesus as Logos is the fullest expressionof the Father's grace, love, mercy, andtruth. His Words are GOD'S truth. Hisdesires for the kingdom of GOD and GOD'Swill to be done are GOD'S heart. His lifeis our example of a true servant ofrighteousness.EMMETT FOX
