The Controversial King

Jesus began his ministry and experienced a meteoric rise in popularity that had gotten to the point that he could no longer openly enter a town (Mark 1:45). Capernaum was still experiencing the effect of the healings and exorcisms Jesus had performed days earlier, so when word spread that Jesus had returned home, people came from everywhere. The “whole city” had gathered at the door the last time Jesus was at the House of Simon and Andrew, so this time the crowd was over capacity. Mark tells us that a group of scribes has also joined the masses to see for themselves what all the fuss is about. When the crowds mentioned the scribes earlier (Mark 1:22), they were comparing the way Jesus taught with authority versus the way scribes would teach citing other sources and rabbis. Luke’s account of this event provides some additional details about the composition of the crowd. This throng included a group known as the Pharisees as well as teachers of the law in addition to the scribes. Presumably, these groups had come to investigate the news spreading like wildfire about this rabbi named Jesus and the phenomenal signs and wonders that were a part of his ministry–things never before seen. However, one should not be naive, this kind of popularity brings the masses, but it also brings the haters and the critics. If perception is reality, then The Servant King will soon be seen as a Controversial King at odds with the religious and political leaders of the day.
