Bringing radical thoughts worth pondering (A blog of poriruachurch.com)
Secular history verifies the historical person of Jesus Christ, but the writers of the New Testament provide the most comprehensive description of His life, character, and words. By honestly considering the testimonies of those who personally knew and observed Jesus, and by carefully examining His teachings, there is only one legitimate conclusion to reach: Jesus was exactly who He (and numerous others) said He was – the very Son of God (cf. 2 Peter 1:16-21). Moreover, Jesus launched a religious movement nearly 2000 years ago that has not only survived and prospered in the face of the most extreme prejudice and persecution imaginable, but it has significantly impacted and transformed both human history and countless individual lives. “And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31-31).
