Astonished Beyond Measure: Surprising Responses to Jesus
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
How would you respond in the presence of someone who did something you had never seen done before, something you thought impossible, something that you never dreamed about?
No doubt you would be awe-struck. You might gasp and say, “Wow!” Perhaps no words would come at all. It would probably be etched into your memory forever. However many times you might speak about what you saw, you would relive that moment and still be greatly amazed.
People who saw what Jesus did and heard Him speak had similar reactions. They said such things as, “We have never heard anyone speak like this.” It was not only the friends of Jesus but even unbelievers who responded with amazement. And there were times when even Jesus Himself was amazed.
There was no special halo around Jesus that caused such reactions. Jesus fully entered into humanity. Nothing marked Him as being from another planet. He spoke, ate, slept, walked, and talked as a man.
What was there about Jesus that caused people to be so surprised?
Astonished Beyond Measure: Surprising Responses to Jesus calls attention to all the things about Jesus that astonish us; His miracles, words, authority, answers, questions, control, humility, and knowledge of all things. The more we know Him, the more wonder will fill our soul.
