Jesus answered him, “I have spoken openly to the world. I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret. (John 18:20 ESV)
Christianity is not a mystery. It isn’t a secret. There aren’t any special mysterious rituals or incantations. And it isn’t something that some elite few are attempting to keep for themselves.
Jesus taught publicly and openly. He lived a public life. He died a public death. He didn’t start an upstart mystery religion in the back of his parents’ home.
Jesus wanted his message to be public. He wanted it to be prominent. He still does. The message of the Hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is life-altering. It changes people. It is not a secret!Advertisements
