A Perspective on Prophets

John, the Baptist, was rejected by many because he was a “wild man” who would not drink wine. Jesus was rejected by some because he was too “common” and did drink wine.

My point? Prophets have been rejected for all kinds of subjective reasons throughout history - and most, if not all, of the ancient prophets would be rejected now for something or another, including in most cases for things they taught that we no longer teach.

I like that contrast, and have thought on it often. Thanks.
