Mirror Word (The Coming Messiah)
Are you disappointed with the Jesus that came and died on a cross over 2,000 years ago? This seems like a harsh question, but the truth is if you are waiting for another Jesus to come – dare we say – a better Jesus, then what you’re saying is that the first Jesus wasn’t good enough. In this message, Andre Rabe explores this line of thought and compares it to what the people groups in Jesus’ day were expecting when the Messiah walked onto the scene.
18 John’s disciples told him about all these things. Calling two of them, 19 he sent them to the Lord to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?”
20 When the men came to Jesus, they said, “John the Baptist sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?’”
— Luke 7:18-20 (NIV)
