The Misunderstood Jesus | June 1, 2019


Psalm 100
John 8:48-59
This week's sermon text: Luke 10:25-37


Jesus was often misunderstood in his own time. Unfortunately, we sometimes still misunderstand who he is and what he came to do.
We misunderstand Jesus when we think he only came to save the good church going people like us.
We misunderstand Jesus when we think he only came to make people respectable.
We misunderstand Jesus when we assume he thinks just like we do.
We misunderstand Jesus when we think he came only to bring only mercy or justice, but definitely not both.
We misunderstand Jesus when we think he came to let us keep living just like we are.
We misunderstand Jesus all the time, but with grace and patience, Jesus transforms our hearts and minds. Let us be open to understanding.


  • What’s a common misunderstanding most people have about Jesus?
  • What’s a misunderstanding you’ve had about Jesus?


  • What are ways that we can understand Jesus even more?


Gracious God, with your help we open our hearts and minds to know you more. Help us to follow Jesus with our whole lives. Amen.
