If, as some contend, Jesus of Nazareth is nothing but the creation of first century fiction writers, that fact would make his story even more amazing. Let's take a moment to reflect on this "myth", as summarized in this powerful little essay that Graham Pockett adapted in 1926 from a sermon preached by Dr. James Allan Francis:
|"One solitary life"|
"Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher.
He never owned a home. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put His foot inside a big city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place He was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but Himself. . .
While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to His enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth – His coat. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend. Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of the human race and leader of the column of progress.
I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built, all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life."
There is practically NO proof outside of the writings by Christian believers that Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical person, which is why I have created a webpage devoted to this very important question, called TheJesusMyth, which I urge believers and non-believers alike to explore.
Although I find it presumptuous, if not blasphemous, for this video to claim to speak for God, and I deplore the fact that the site involved has a commercial purpose behind it, www.theinterviewwithgod.com is a flash presentation about God that many find very inspiring.
