He did offend people
A letter writer on 30 March stated, "In all of Jesus' teachings, I can think of no time when He made anyone uncomfortable." What an incredible claim! Any who accepted this statement surely received an incorrect view of Jesus Christ.
We can learn from plenty of New Testament references that Christ said and did many things which made people uncomfortable. Teaching with love means proclaiming the truth. There have always been and will always be many who find the truth offensive to them.
If Jesus did not offend anyone as the writer wants to believe, then can someone please explain why the majority chose to put Him to death?
