Jesus taught that His disciples have to eat and drink Him, but that offended some of them, because they found it a hard saying. John then wrote,
When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you?” (John 6.61).
Jesus has always seemed compassionate to me, and loving, and easy to follow, but not everyone sees Him that way. I once had a Bible study with a woman who hated Jesus because of the hard things He taught.
- Do you find anything offensive in the teachings of Christ?
- What do you think of His teachings?
