Jesus always provoked a reaction from those who heard him teach and those he healed. Some saw him as Joseph’s son, others dismissed or tried to trap him, some saw him as a prophet, others as the Son of God. We all make value judgements about who people are. Often we those values are based not on knowledge but our own prejudices and experiences and how what another says or does will affect our lives. Many people rejected Jesus as not worthy because there was too high a cost to them.
How often are we guilty of doing the same?
