A RANSOM FOR MANY


 

Jesus and His Apostles are now leaving the coasts of Judea beyond the river Jordan and headed to Jerusalem. Jesus took the Apostles aside on the way and said to them we are going to Jerusalem and the Son of man will be turned over to the chief priests and scribes. They will condemn Him to death and turn Him over to the Gentiles to mock and scourge and spit on and they will crucify Him and on the third day, He will rise again. Still the Apostles had not done the math and put the pieces of the puzzle together just yet so they still did not understand Jesus, though He had repeated this prophecy many times.

Right about that time the Mother of James and John came to Jesus to ask a question. She wanted Jesus to promise that HER two sons would sit on the right and left of Jesus in His glory. Jesus looked at her sons and answered them instead of the Mother. He said ... You do not know what you are asking. (Isn't He awesome, He KNEW they had their Mom come ask for them, so He directed His response to them.) Are you able to drink of the cup that I will drink of and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They answered, we are able. But they understood not what Jesus meant. Jesus said ... You will surely drink of my cup and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with, but to sit on my right and on my left is not for me to give but it will be given to those for who it is prepared of my Father.

When the other 10 Apostles heard about this little conversation, they were upset with the two brothers. But, Jesus called them all together and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles have power over them and the ones who are great exercise authority over the others. But, it won't be the same among you. Whoever is great among you will be your servant. Even as the Son Of man didn't come to be ministered to but to minister and to give His life, as a ransom, for many.

A RANSOM FOR MANY TRUTH WITH A RANSOM FOR MANY BLESSING BRINGING FORTH A RANSOM FOR MANY HOPE

This is what Jesus meant when He answered back to the two brothers a little earlier when He said that they would indeed drink of His cup and be baptized in the way He was baptized because they too would experience some of what He did, minister to others, preach the Gospel, be baptized with the Holy Spirit and ... Die for the cause. Yet STILL ... They did not understand. They saw things from a Ďman's worldí point of view.

As they neared Jericho, a blind man named Bar-Timaeus sat by the side of the highway begging. (In Israel, "Bar meant Son of and the name of the Dad followed the word "Bar") When the blind man heard the crowd, he asked why the people were gathering and people told him that Jesus of Nazareth was coming. The man cried out "Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me."

Jesus commanded that the man be brought to Him. The blind man threw down his coat and came to Jesus. Then Jesus asked, what is it that you would have me do for you? The blind man responded, Lord that I may receive my sight. Jesus said unto him, Go your way, your Faith has made you whole. Immediately, he received his sight and followed Jesus along the way.

Is it not ironic that the Apostles are blinded to the TRUTH that Jesus is trying to share with them about His pending death and resurrection, even though they bore witness to many miracles including one that was blind having his sight restored? It is sad that we, as humans, oft times lose sight of the TRUTH though it be right in front of us. We oft times take things for granted and sometimes it takes the Lord's help before we finally realize what we have and then ... We can see again.

ZACCHAEUS

MATTHEW 25:14-46

LUKE 19:1-27

Then Jesus entered and was passing through Jericho and there was a rich man named Zacchśus, who was the leader of all the tax collectors. He heard that Jesus was passing through, and wanted to see who He was, but because he was a short man, he couldnít see over the crowd. So, Zacchśus ran and climbed up in a sycamore tree so he could see Him.

When Jesus passed that way, He looked up in the tree and said, Zacchśus, hurry down, today Iím going to your house. Zacchśus hurried down and welcomed Him gladly and when the people heard of it, they all murmured that Jesus was going to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.

Zacchśus stood and said, Lord, half of my things I give to the poor, and if Iíve taken anything from anyone unfairly, I repay him four times its worth. Jesus said to him, Today, salvation has come to this house, as he is also a son of Abraham, because the Son of man has come to find and to save those who are lost.

As the people listened, Jesus told them this parable because He was near to Jerusalem, and they thought that the kingdom of God was going to immediately appear:

A nobleman (honorable man) went into a far country to obtain a kingdom for himself, and then return. He called his servants, and to one he gave five talents, to another he gave two, and to another he gave one; to each man according to his different ability and he said, trade (do business) with this until I return. The citizens in his new kingdom hated him and sent a message after him saying, We wonít have this man reign over us.

When he returned home, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered his servants to be called to him, that he had given the money to, so he could find out how much each man had profited by trading.

The first came to him saying, Lord, your five talents have gained five more. The nobleman said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant. Because youíve been faithful with very little, you may have authority over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.

The second came to him saying, Lord, your two talents have gained two more. And he likewise said to him, You may have authority over many things.

The servant who received one talent came and said, Lord, here is your talent, which I went and buried in the earth. I know youíre a harsh man and you gather where you didnít straw and you reap what you didnít sow. I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth, so I give you back what is yours.

The nobleman said, You wicked and lazy servant. Out of your own mouth I will judge you. You knew that I was a harsh man, gathering where I didnít straw and reaping what I didnít sow. Why then, didnít you put my money in the bank, so when I came back, I would have gotten my own money back with interest?

He ordered that the talent be taken from him and given to the servant with ten talents, because to everyone who has, more shall be given and he will have abundance, but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

As for my enemies who wish that I donít reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.

What do you think this parable means? Letís take a closer look at it. Jesus is the nobleman, and the far country is earth. The people in the new kingdom that He went to receive, but didnít want Him to be King over them are those who donít believe in Jesus. He gives us, His servants each different gifts, according to our abilities. Itís up to us, until He returns, to use those gifts to serve Him. Perhaps a talent is a lost soul. Perhaps during your lifetime, there are people who you were assigned to save, or works that you were assigned to do that would, in turn, save souls. Those who use the gifts that they have been blessed with are allowed to enter into the joy of the Lord, which we can imagine to be heaven. If you take your gifts and bury them, hide them, do nothing with them ... your gifts will be taken away. This makes it much easier to understand what it means, those who have will be given more and those who have not, even the little they have will be taken away.

When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy Angels with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His glory, and before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats (the good from the bad). And He shall set the sheep at His right hand , but the goats on the left. Then the King shall say to them at His right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world, for I was hungry, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in, naked, and you clothed me, I was sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.

Then the righteous shall answer Him, saying, Lord, when did we see you hungry, and fed you or thirsty, and gave you to drink? When did we see you a stranger, and took you in, or naked, and clothed you? Or when did we see you sick, or in prison, and came to you? And the King shall answer and say to them, Truly I say to you, Anytime you have done it for one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it for me.


Then He shall say also to them on the left hand, Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels, for I was hungry, and you gave me no meat, I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger, and you didnít take me in, naked, and you gave me no clothes, sick, and in prison, and you didnít visit me. Then they shall also answer Him, saying, Lord, when had we seen you hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didnít minister to you? Then He shall answer them, saying, Truly I say to you, Anytime you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.

And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
