Beyond the Law

Dozens of times in the Gospels, Jesus "amazes" his listeners. Here are a few of my favorites:
  • They were amazed, saying "What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?" -Matthew 8:27
  • They were on the way, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus went ahead of them. They were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. Taking the Twelve aside again, he began to tell them what was going to happen to him. -Mark 10:32
  • And all who were with him were amazed at the catch.  -Luke 5:9
Does Jesus amaze us?

Is he so shockingly unique that we, his followers, are sometimes a little afraid of him?
