Those who Rejected Jesus

Those who Rejected Jesus:


"He came to His own and those who were His own did not receive Him.” John 1:11


  1. Jesus did not meet their expectations.
    1. John 9:24 "Give glory to God we know that this man is a sinner.”


  1. Jesus demanded piousness over religious acts.
    1. John 12:6 "Now he said this not because he was concerned with the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put in it.”


  1. Money was more important that the Master:
    1. John 18:38 "I find no guilt in Him”
    2. John 19:12 "If you release this man, you are no friend of Caesar, everyone who makes himself out to be a king opposes Caesar.”


  1. Some did not have the strength of character to take a stand for Jesus.
    1. "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.”  G.K. Chesterton


People today reject Jesus for the same exact reasons.
