Many books that were written around 2000 years ago pretty much agree that there was actually a Jesus of Nazareth. He was reported to have done incredible things, even one report of him raising the dead, and another that tells of him raising himself from the dead. There was much dispute about this even then, but most open-minded people will usually admit that there were some unusual activities in Jerusalem around the time Jesus was supposed to have been here and that life on planet earth changed dramatically after his brief time in the world. There were stories found in Rome reporting many things that collaborates the New Testaments’ Jesus Christ. The question arises when some, including Paul, formally Saul, claimed that Jesus was indeed the ONLY SON OF GOD. Others would point out that Jesus himself said “you are all gods” (notice the small g in gods.) I am not one who believes that I must shove my interpretation of who Jesus was down everyone else’s throats, but I do believe that he was a very important being, worthy of study. Don’t decide who Jesus was by my words, or anyone else’s. People have their on agendas, as do churches, and institutions. Study his words, study other words, and listen to your heart. Maybe you can tell me what is the true Christ; I promise to listen to you and consider your words.
My favorite quote from the bible was from a recently healed blind man, when asked who is this Jesus Christ who had healed him. He simply said, “I know not who he was, I just know that once I was blind, but now I see.” Maybe it is that simple.
