This site is a place where I share encouragement and struggles from the perspective of someone who believes that Jesus is exactly who He said He was, and this changes everything.
Well, if you want to look at some facts about Jesus’ existence I invite you to keep on reading.
First, the evidences of His existence is both long-established and widespread, I also think that is implausible that monotheists (Jewish) would invent an incarnate Messiah. And the gospels, have no vestige of the textual marks of the myths, also, most of Jesus’ life is totally unknown to us, as is the life of any other person who lived in those days, and no writer who was building a legend or a myth would allow it to be so.
In fact, there is significantly more documentation for the books of the Bible than there are for other historically recognized authors and literature, such as Plato and The Iliad. Thousands of ancient, hand-copied documents provide proof of the New Testament and Old Testament’s historical consistency.
Therefore, the Bible is true, and the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus of History.
And if this Jesus from the Bible isn’t whom He said He was, so He would be definitely a liar or a lunatic. And we do have some claims against that:
“I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.’ Well, that is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher… You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool … or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.” C. S. Lewis
Therefore, I believe that He is the Lord. Jesus is exactly who He said He was, and this makes a huge difference on every living creature on this planet. He is risen and surely alive, you should get to know Him, He is an awesome guy.
