Luke 20:6 (KJV) Committed to Christ?

Luke 20:6 (KJV)
But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.

The same people who would later cry out they wanted Jesus crucified here would have, the Pharisees believed, stoned them for speaking lightly of John the Baptist.

  • It is easier to accept a man is a prophet than to accept He is God
  • It is easier to support a good man than to stay faithful to Christ as Saviour
  • It is more natural to defend the character of a leader than to defend the deity of Christ

Whether they would have stoned the Pharisees is impossible to tell. We do know that, though they were intrigued with Jesus, in the end they turned against Him.

Professing believers ought to take this to heart and examine closely their faith. Are we merely loyal to a preacher and intrigued by Christ? Or are we genuinely committed to our relationship with Him?
