Some interesting questions were raised by Rev. Stephenson’s sermon…

Can Jesus experience transformation?

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Hebrews 13:8 ESV

Could Jesus have spoken from a heart of prejudice?

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin.
Hebrews 4:14-15 NIV84
Could Jesus have kept His comments to Himself even if He wanted to?

Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth,
the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only
what he sees his Father doing, because whatever
the Father does the Son also does. …”
John 5:19 NIV84

Will we understand all His ways?

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. …”
Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV84
We will not always understand His ways… at least not from where we stand right now… but He is the Word made flesh… full of grace… and truth.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NIV84

What should we do, when we are offended by His Word?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding…
Proverbs 3:5 NIV84

What questions do you have?

Take them to Him.
Ask for revelation.
Be willing to let the Truth transform you.
