If you’ve ever felt rejected or unwelcomed, then you are good in company – the same thing happened to Jesus. Although many of the common people were attracted to Jesus and his message, the Jewish leaders and authorities viewed Jesus as either a threat or a blasphemer. Isaiah 53 reminds us that Jesus was “despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem” (Isaiah 53:3). In many respects, Jesus was the ultimate outsider both then and now.
