Criticizing Jesus

By Sean Finnegan

Mark 2:23-28 The Pharisees criticized Jesus for allowing his disciples
to pluck heads of grain.

Matthew 12:9-14 They goaded him about healing on the Sabbath
when he saw the man with the withered hand.

Mark 7:1-15 They criticized Jesus’ disciples for eating with
unwashed hands, ignoring the tradition of the elders.

Luke 5:33-39 They criticized Jesus because his disciples did not fast
like the disciples of John and the disciples of the Pharisees.

Over and over when criticized by his opponents, Jesus engaged with
them. He did not slink back in fear, nor did he lose his temper. If Jesus
is our example, we should seek to conduct ourselves in like manner
when we face similar situations.

John 15:18-20 Some will hate, and some will listen. Jesus said that
we should expect the same kind of mixed results.

1 John 3:13
Do not be surprised, brothers, that the world hates you.
