Guest Post at Big B

My friend Brandon asked me to guest post over at his blog, Big B: Ampli­fying God’s Kingdom, while he’s away on a mission trip. He is 16 and already he has more wisdom (and is a much better writer) than I was at his age.

If you have come here from his website, check out my About page to learn more about the site and read some of my most popular posts.

For my readers, I’m responding to comments on his blog so check out the post over there and while you’re at it, subscribe to his blog — you won’t be disappointed.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

Jesus Is Weird

Have you ever thought about how weird Jesus is?

It sounds blas­phe­mous, but read through the gospels and the first thing you should notice is how weird the guy is.

My Bible study has been reading through the book of Mark and in chapters 4 and 5 alone Jesus does some really weird stuff:

  • He yells at a storm (4:35–41) (and the storm listens to him!)
  • He confronts an army. (5:1–13) (The army of thousands freaks out when it sees Jesus and begs him not murder them!)
  • He tells a man he’ll cure his daughter who is moments from death, and on the way he ignores the situation so he can talk to a woman who didn’t want to talk to him anyway. (5:21–34)
  • His conver­sa­tion keeps him long enough that the dying girl dies. Jesus tells the doctors that she’s only sleeping; he gets mad when they don’t believe him; and then he tells the girl to get up…which she does! (5:35–43).

There is one word for that kind of behavior: weird.
