Jesus a Liar? The Common Root of Unbelief
Jesus’ own brothers and countrymen doubted His deity and Messiahship because He wouldn’t claim an earthly kingdom and take His country by storm. ?Many of the Jewish people in Jerusalem are not excited by Jesus’ miracles. They are threatened by them, and want to see him dead. We often fail to believe Jesus because He does not choose to act upon our terms.
