Jesus and His Enemies
“This is a great resource: a study of Jesus’ enemies by one of Jesus’ friends. Use it well and you may yet have the joy of seeing many of Jesus’ enemies in your own context become his friends!”See All

Christians have, in the gospel, the best news imaginable for a dying world. So why is our message ridiculed, ignored, and rejected?
Jesus’ own example answers the question. As soon as he came into the world, he had enemies too—and if he experienced hatred from the world his followers can expect no less.
Paul Yeulett examines the types of opposition Jesus encountered—demonic, political, religious, emotional, physical, and spiritual. He helps us understand why this opposition occured in the life of Jesus and occurs in our own lives.
Yet Yeulett reminds us that Jesus didn’t just endure opposition, he overcame it; and he examines Jesus’ responses to help strengthen us to keep proclaiming Christ’s victory to his enemies today.
