From February to April 2014, we will dive intoÂ a new series of messages leading up to Easter asking the question about Jesus, Who is this man?Â
We want to look at how Jesus has changed the world and how he can change our lives and our prioritiesÂ as well. He entered the world with absolutely no dignity at all. He would have been known as a mamzer, a child whose parents were not married. All languages have a word for mamzer, and they are all quite ugly. He was born in a stable and laid in a feeding trough, his nursery mates were the animals. He was wrapped in whatever cloths were available. He was born without dignity, accused of being a mamzer and he would die with even less dignity; convicted, beaten, bleeding, abandoned, naked and shamed; dying a criminalâ€™s death.
Who is this man that we call Jesus and sing songs about? What difference does it make that he was born and came into our world? Is the world really any different because He came? Over the next few weeks we want to ask that question together.
De fÃ©vrier Ã avril 2014, nous commenÃ§ons une nouvelle sÃ©rie de messages qui nous mÃ¨nera Ã Pacques en posant cette question Ã propos de JÃ©sus: Qui est cet homme ?
Nous voulons voir comment JÃ©sus a changÃ© le monde et comment il peut changer nos vies et nos prioritÃ©s. Il est entrÃ© dans le monde sans aucune dignitÃ©. Il Ã©tait connu comme un mamzer, un enfant de couple non-mariÃ©. Tous les langages ont un mot pour mamzer, et ils sont tous plus ou moins laids. Il naquÃ®t dans une Ã©table et fÃ»t installÃ© dans une mangeoire, ses premiers camarades furent des animaux. Il Ã©tait vÃªtu de ce qui Ã©tait disponible. Il naquÃ®t sans aucune dignitÃ©, accusÃ© dâ€™Ãªtre un mamzer et mourut avec moins de dignitÃ© encore; condamnÃ©, battu, blessÃ©, abandonnÃ©, nu et honteux, mourant comme un criminel.Â
Qui est cet homme appelÃ© JÃ©sus et Ã propos duquel nous chantons ? Quelle diffÃ©rence cela fait quâ€™il soit venu au monde ? Notre monde est-il vraiment diffÃ©rent depuis sa venue ? Durant les prochaines semaines nous voulons Ã©tudier ces questions ensemble.
