WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT
Your child sees a crucifix and asks, “Why is that man hanging on a cross?”
You hear the song Jesus is King and wonder to yourself, “King of what?”
You see a social media post calling Jesus the Answer and wonder “What was the question?”
Perhaps you grew up in a different faith tradition, or none at all, and wonder: “Was Jesus a real person or a myth?” or “Why do people worship a convict who was executed more than two thousand years ago?”
Depending upon who you ask, you’ll get many different answers to the question, “Who is Jesus?”
Atheists may accept the overwhelming evidence that He was a historical person, but reject the spiritual realities associated with his life and death.
Media preachers may portray him as someone who gives blessings to those who send a check to their ministry.
Others may present him as a prophet like Moses or Mohammed, still others a mystical guru who brings enlightenment.
Let’s cut through the confusion. While it is true that there are many people and religions with differing opinions on a variety of topics, it is also true that Christians have made the same essential claims about Jesus Christ that were taught by his disciples in the first century and affirmed in every generation since.
