H OW DID OTHERS REACT TO HIM ? People were astonished;
W HAT DOES THIS SAY ABOUT J ESUS ?

The Humanity Of Jesus
Mat 9:35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. Mat 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
Mat 14:14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.
Mat 21:12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. Mat 21:13 And He said to them, "It is written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER,' but you have made it a 'DEN OF THIEVES.'"
Mat 15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed." Mat 15:23 But He answered her not a word. And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, "Send her away, for she cries out after us." Mat 15:24 But He answered and said, "I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." Mat 15:25 Then she came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" Mat 15:26 But He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the little dogs." Mat 15:27 And she said, "Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." Mat 15:28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that very hour.
Mat 21:18 Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. Mat 21:19 And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, "Let no fruit grow on you ever again." Immediately the fig tree withered away.
Mat 21:23 Now when He came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people confronted Him as He was teaching, and said, "By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority?" Mat 21:24 But Jesus answered and said to them, "I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things: Mat 21:25 The baptism of Johnwhere was it from? From heaven or from men?" And they reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say to us, 'Why then did you not believe him?' Mat 21:26 But if we say, 'From men,' we fear the multitude, for all count John as a prophet." Mat 21:27 So they answered Jesus and said, "We do not know." And He said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mat 23:13 "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Mat 23:14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation. Mat 23:15 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. Mat 23:16 "Woe to you, blind guides, who say, 'Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obliged to perform it.' Mat 23:17 Fools and blind!
Mat 23:33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? Mat 23:34 Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, Mat 23:35 that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.
Mat 26:6 And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, Mat 26:7 a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table. Mat 26:8 But when His disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, "Why this waste? Mat 26:9 For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and given to the poor." Mat 26:10 But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me. Mat 26:11 For you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always. Mat 26:12 For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial. Mat 26:13 Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."
Mat 26:33 Peter answered and said to Him, "Even if all are made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble." Mat 26:34 Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." Mat 26:35 Peter said to Him, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!"
Mat 26:39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." Mat 26:40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
Mat 26:59 Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, Mat 26:60 but found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward Mat 26:61 and said, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.' " Mat 26:62 And the high priest arose and said to Him, "Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?" Mat 26:63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, "I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!" Mat 26:64 Jesus said to him, "It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven."
Mat 27:11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" Jesus said to him, "It is as you say." Mat 27:12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. Mat 27:13 Then Pilate said to Him, "Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?" Mat 27:14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.
Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
Joh 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, Joh 3:15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Joh 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
Mat 27:55 And many women who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there looking on from afar, Mat 27:56 among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.
oh 1:46 And Nathanael said to him, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see." Joh 1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward Him, and said of him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!"
Joh 2:1 On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Joh 2:2 Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. Joh 2:3 And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." Joh 2:4 Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come." Joh 2:5 His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it."
Joh 2:13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Joh 2:14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers doing business. Joh 2:15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables. Joh 2:16 And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!"
Joh 4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, "Give Me a drink." Joh 4:8 For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. Joh 4:9 Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, "How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?" For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Joh 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
Joh 6:59 These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum. Joh 6:60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying; who can understand it?"
Joh 6:64 But there are some of you who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. Joh 6:65 And He said, "Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father." Joh 6:66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Joh 6:67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want to go away?" Joh 6:68 But Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
Joh 13:21 When Jesus had said these things, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me."
Joh 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him, Joh 13:3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God, Joh 13:4 rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. Joh 13:5 After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
Joh 11:32 Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died." Joh 11:33 Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. Joh 11:34 And He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see." Joh 11:35 Jesus wept. Joh 11:36 Then the Jews said, "See how He loved him!" Joh 11:37 And some of them said, "Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also have kept this man from dying?" Joh 11:38 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it.
Joh 10:20 And many of them said, "He has a demon and is mad. Why do you listen to Him?" Joh 10:21 Others said, "These are not the words of one who has a demon. Can a demon open the eyes of the blind?"
Joh 8:43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. Joh 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. Joh 8:45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Joh 8:46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? Joh 8:47 He who is of God hears God's words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God."
Joh 8:31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. Joh 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Joh 8:24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." Joh 8:25 Then they said to Him, "Who are You?" And Jesus said to them, "Just what I have been saying to you from the beginning.
Joh 13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.
Joh 15:11 "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
Joh 18:20 Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing. Joh 18:21 Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said." Joh 18:22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Do You answer the high priest like that?" Joh 18:23 Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?"
Joh 20:15 Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?" She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, "Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away."
Joh 21:10 Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have just caught." Joh 21:11 Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. Joh 21:12 Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, "Who are You?"knowing that it was the Lord.
Heb 2:14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, Heb 2:15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Heb 2:16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham. Heb 2:17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. Heb 2:18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.
Heb 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. Heb 4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
