Now think with me about how, on that first Christmas Eve, Jesus beganhis life journey…as an outsider.
Jesus was an outsider politically. He had to flee from Herod. Within a year of his birth, he was a refugee in Egypt.
Jesus was an outsider to his own family. Despite his mother’s devotion, his brothers and sisters never seemed to have understood him. At times during his ministry they even thought he had gone mad.
Jesus was an outsider to his townsfolk. The people of Nazareth accepted him – yes, when he was the carpenter’s son. But when his ministry began, they all but threw him off the cliff for his “pretentious” messianic airs.
Jesus was an outsider to the religious leaders. He had no formal theological training, nor did he have a proper school of educated disciples. His band of followers was riff raff from the boondocks up in Galilee.
And Jesus was an outsider to the Romans. They saw him as a menace to the peace they had brokered with the Sanhedrin. For all they knew Jesus was a zealot, secretly plotting a revolt against them.
Read it all.
