We’ve all heard of the butterfly effect. You know, that “metaphorical example of the details of a hurricane (exact time of formation, exact path taken) being influenced by minor perturbations such as the flapping of the wings of a distant butterfly several weeks earlier.” (Wikipedia). But today I want to talk to you about something I have coined “The Jesus Effect.”
Most of us are somewhat familiar with the life and teachings of Jesus to one degree or another. But, most of us are not aware of how Jesus’ own acquaintances and family perceived Him once he began his teaching ministry. Bottom line, he got rejected, insulted, and his own family and town didn’t ‘buy into him.’ Yes, Shakespeare was right; familiarity does breed contempt.
Have you been there? Well, as you’re about to see, you’re in good company.
