“There was a lot of grumbling about him among the crowds. Some argued, “He’s a good man,” but others said, “He’s nothing but a fraud who deceives the people.”” (John 7:12 NLT)
Was Jesus the chosen one? The Messiah? Or was he just another one of those preachers who could talk a good talk but had no substance?
At this point on the road to the crucifixion, the crowd were still undecided. Some of them thought that he was a trouble maker, a rabble rouser. Others said he was a great teacher who should be listened to.
Some said he was the greatest man alive.
Others hated him.
So what’s changed in the last 2000 years?
