Jesus must have been an amazing preacher, because the Scripture tells us that when He preached people were amazed, which would make Him an amazing preacher.  But what was the source of their amazement?  He taught as one who had authority, not like the scribes and Pharisees.  It is to be feared that we have far too many scribes and Pharisees in pulpits today.  They do not preach with authority and the people are not amazed –  amused, perhaps, but not amazed.
