The Real Jesus

It used to bother me when I would hear of people researching the “historical” Jesus. Different “Jesus” projects seemed just insulting when all (as I thought) we needed to know about Jesus was in the Bible. Lately I’ve even heard some talk about the “Jesus myth” as if he didn’t really exist at all. Really? I can’t imagine setting the calendar by someone’s birth who was totally fictitious.

Over the years, I have learned to value these various searchings as a trend. A valuable trend. People in the 21st  century are still interested in Jesus. Even attempts to discredit him must begin with someone, somewhere, looking at the available information. That’s a good thing. I tell believers and unbelievers the same thing: don’t bring your own agenda to the Bible. Just let it say what it says and make your decision.

Today I ran across an interesting article about the many images of Jesus in the world. Sometimes we stop searching and just try to make him in our own image, but sometimes it’s just an attempt to make some type of connection with him. Read it and look at the pictures: http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2014/03/15/five-things-you-didnt-know-about-jesus/?hpt=hp_c3 .

If you or someone you know really wants to find Jesus, start by talking to his “Father.” Go see: www.therealprayer.org
