Bible Passage: Luke 7:18-35

It may often be the case that we look to Jesus just to confirm our own hopes and expectations about himself and his works in our life. Many people in Jesus time also felt that the way Jesus was acting did not confirm their hope and expectations of what the Messiah was supposed to be and do. Jesus works to reframe the false expectations Israel had of their Messiah, and continues to reframe our hopes and expectations today.
