Christians have, in the gospel, the best news imaginable for a dying world—so why is our message ridiculed, ignored, and rejected?

Jesus’ own life answers this question. As soon as he came into the world, he had enemies too—and if he experienced hatred from the world his followers can expect no less.

Paul Yeulett examines the types of opposition Jesus encountered—demonic, political, religious, emotional, physical, and spiritual. He helps us understand why this opposition occurred in the life of Jesus and occurs in our own lives.

Yet Yeulett reminds us that Jesus didn’t just endure opposition, he overcame it; and he examines Jesus’ responses to help strengthen us to keep proclaiming Christ’s victory to his enemies today.


“This is a great resource: a study of Jesus’ enemies by one of Jesus’ friends. Use it well and you may yet have the joy of seeing many of Jesus’ enemies in your own context become his friends!”

—Iain D. Campbell, Senior Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis; Moderator, General Assembly of the Free Church of Scotland, 2012

“Yeulett helps the reader to consider in a fresh way the claims and significance of Jesus by focusing on the very real conflicts between Jesus and his enemies. Those who ‘take up and read’ will be moved to consider the implications this has for our own day as well.”

—Brandon D. Crowe, Assistant Professor of New Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
