He was born in a small town, the child of a peasant woman. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was thirty years old. Then, for the next three years he was a traveling preacher.
He never owned a home. Never wrote a book. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never had any credentials. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place he was born. He never did any of the things that usually accompany greatness.
While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends abandoned him. One of them denied even knowing him. He was handed over to his enemies. He stood trial and was found guilty – not for a crime, but rather for a claim he made. He was executed along with two convicted thieves, as his killers gambled for the only piece of property he had on earth – his coat. When he was dead, he was laid to rest in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend. Three days later, he was seen alive.
2000 years have passed, and today he is the centerpiece of the human race. Of all the armies that ever marched, of all the navies that were ever built; all the governments that ever ruled and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of humans on this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life.*
So who is Jesus? A myth? A great moral teacher? A delusional whack-job? A liar?
