When our LORD Jesus the Messiah of Israel, stood before Caiaphas the high priest, He boldly declared:
I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Mark 14:62
Caiaphas had asked our LORD:
Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? Mark 14:61
The high priest, speaking for the Sanhedrin, asked Yeshua if He was the Messiah?
Every Jew in the world should be asking the same question.
Sadly, like Caiaphas, many Jews do not believe that Yeshua is their Messiah. This breaks my heart – I love the Jews! However, God is not finished with Israel – Romans 9-11.
Israel’s LORD – Jesus of Nazareth – declared to the Sanhedrin, the first century Jewish Supreme Court, that He was the Messiah!
NO rabbi can disprove that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel!
Any rabbi that denies that Yeshua is the King of the Jews is as deceived as Caiaphas was 2,000 years ago.
Caiaphas accused Yeshua, his Messiah, of blasphemy for telling the truth:
63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. Mark 14:63-64
No Caiaphas, you blasphemed your own Messiah by not believing your own Scriptures that He fulfilled before your very eyes, and He was gracious enough to ALLOW you to condemn Him to death because He was WILLING to die for your sin in denying Him!
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is UNDENIABLE! The evidence contained in the Bible is invincible – there is no argument that can disprove the resurrection of Jesus.
Jews and Gentiles alike are afraid to face the facts that prove, without a doubt, that Jesus Christ is the Messiah of Israel – that He ALONE has risen from the dead, conquered death, conquered sin, is the ONLY way to salvation, and is RIGHT NOW sitting at the right hand of the Father.
Dear friend, do not be afraid to DECLARE to this present world that JESUS, THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL, IS GOD THE SON. Do not be afraid to call people to repentance and faith in the risen Messiah – Jesus! Devote your life to telling people about Jesus! Give your life serving and loving people in His name.
Don’t BE a Caiaphas.
God bless you.
