"Turn the other cheek. If someone takes your shirt give him your coat. Bless those who curse you." For most people these teachings of Jesus' are painfully misunderstood or seem impossible. Yet, every week, if not every day, you are insulted, criticized, or mistreated by someone. How do you deal with those situations. How about looking at them as an opportunity to grow to be more like Jesus by responding as he would.

Some people accepted it, coming to understand the love of Christ. Others said it was blasphemy, saying that Jesus' teachings were of the devil.

Actually .. the Romans didn't care ... they had absorbed many different religions over the centuries, and his teachings were just another one. There was no challenge to Roman rule or the Empire. Even the Roman Governor, during Jesus' trial, saw no threat from him.

UH ... there were no "Christians" in Jesus' time ... he spoke to Jews and Gentiles (non-Jews) ...

Most people ignored him ... they already had their own gods to worship, and didn't need this newfangled religion. A few accepted the teachings. Some of the Jewish leaders saw him as a challenge to their power.

There were only two choices. Christianity began at the gate to the Garden of Eden with God promising Adam that He would send a redeemer to reopen the door to his Paradise. The foundation of Christianity is the repeating of that promise to each generation. those who were looking for the fulfillment of that promise and understood the time prophecy concerning His appearance responded with joy.

Most were indifferent to much of it, but some of his teachings were enraging, because it included blasphemy, non-acceptance of authority, and other sins. So naturally all his doings led to him bring prosecuted. Those who cared about keeping God's word did not follow his teachings.

Some accepted with open hearts, others rejected with disbelief and hatred, calling Jesus a blasphemer. Hating him so much they killed him. They fought with power, but to no avail did they come near, for He is risen as He said, Christ is alive :)

There's no way to know, no contemporary records exist outside of the bible of that time period. The earliest account in the bible was written 60 years after the mentioned events, so even that can't be 100% accurate. I mean imagine an 80 year old today trying to recall events from 1953 with any kind of detail, and without pictures, notes, videotapes, etc. etc.

Which people? The crowds that followed him loved him but Jewish leaders despised him and Roman leaders were angered and worried by his growing popularity.

for the most part, those in power hated and envied his appeal and influence with the people. They feared him. The masses loved him. That's the way it's always been with those in power- eliminate / take him out.
