The Amazed Jesus

Jesus often amazed others. In fact, there are 29 passages in the gospels that mention people being amazed by Jesus.

But did you realize that only twice in the gospels are we told that Jesus was amazed?

So what kind of things amazed Jesus?

“And he was amazed at their lack of faith. Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village” (Mark 6:6).

“When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, ‘I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel'” (Luke 7:9).

Only two passages record Jesus being amazed. What amazed him? He was amazed at the lack of faith he found in Israel. He was amazed at the great faith he found outside Israel.

I don’t know about you, but I find that amazing.
