Riding into Jerusalem

Back around 2000 years ago, a fella named Jesus walked the earth.  Today, many millions of people believe he was the son of God.  Maybe he was.  But let's assume for a minute that he was just a man.  Let's assume that he just wanted everyone to get along.

Jesus existed.  We have irrefutable proof of that.  Jesus was crucified.  Again, rock solid.  Jesus was a Rabbi, a teacher.  He led a group of men around his country, teaching people to love one another.  And he must have been good at it, because two thousand years later, he still has people signing up for his class.

There are some historians who believe Jesus was the leader of the Iscariots, a group of Jews who wanted the Romans evicted from their country.  These historians think Jesus was supposed to enter Jerusalem and demand that the Romans leave, which would have got him killed, but also would have started an uprising that may have forced the Romans to abandon Judea.  Jesus didn't do that.  Instead, he said, "Give unto Caesar that which is Caesar's.  Give unto God that which is God's."  A brilliant move, but perhaps the reason Judas Iscariot betrayed him.

Jesus' message of peace and love has withstood two millennia.  No one else has a track record that good.  I believe he is the Son of God, but if you don't agree with me, you should at least be willing to admit that he is perhaps the most influential person in world history.

Merry Christmas, one and all.  Peace on Earth, goodwill to men.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    One of the most compelling reasons that I have for believing the story of Jesus is that 10 of the 12 eye witnesses went to their death as martyrs rather than renounce their faith in Jesus. Only one (John) lived into old age and of course the one who betrayed Jesus was so distraught that he committed suicide. Circumstantial evidence - but evidence none-the-less.

    God Bless you all.
