Jesus And His Enemies

JESUS AND HIS ENEMIES If Jesus loved the down-and-outs like that, what about His enemies? When we read the gospels, it seems that He had it in for them.

PRODUCE THE EVIDENCE  “Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and His teaching. ‘I have spoken openly to the world,’ Jesus replied. ‘I always taught in the synagogues or the temple, where all the Jews come together.
