“You are my Son, whom I love;
with you I am well pleased.” 
Mark 1:11

Look at the last three years of Jesus’ life:
.
– He was homeless (Matthew 8:20).
– He was surrounded by critical people (Mark 8:32).
– He was surrounded by people who did not understand him (Mark 8:21).
– His family did not believe in him (John 7:5).
– People wanted to be with Him for what He could give, not who He was (John 6:26).
.
– He did not have a wife.
– He did not have children.
– He did not have an income.
.
– He was not physically attractive (Isaiah 53:2).
– He was oppressed (Isaiah 53:7).
– He was afflicted (Isaiah 53:7).
– He was despised (Isaiah 53:3).
– He was murdered (John 19:18).
