If you want to get to know Jesus, start with praying, reading His Word, fellow shipping with other believers!
Jesus is my friend who showed me the way when it seemed I had no friends. He has picked me up when I have fallen, and he has given me many second chances in life, he is my God, my Father, my Lord, and my Savior.
He has been my Teacher, my Protector, Provider, Sustainer, Redeemer, Judge, Physician, Companion plus many other excellent characteristics and qualities that Jesus Christ represents Himself to me.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, and He is my refuge and my strength, He is so patient with me and loves me for who I am, a sinner saved by His grace! ~Bill Greguska
Was Jesus A Lunatic?
If it is inconceivable for Jesus to be a liar, then couldn’t He have thought Himself to be God, but been mistaken? After all, it’s possible to be both sincere and wrong.
But we must remember that for someone to think himself, God, especially in a fiercely monotheistic culture, and then to tell others that their eternal destiny depended on believing in him, is no light flight of fantasy but the thoughts of a lunatic in the fullest sense.
Was Jesus Christ, such a person?
Was Jesus Lord?
I cannot personally conclude that Jesus was a liar or a lunatic. The only other alternative is that He was the Christ, the Son of God, as He claimed.
When I discuss this with most Jewish people, it’s interesting how they respond. They usually tell me that Jesus was a moral, upright, religious leader, a good man, or some prophet. I then share with them the claims Jesus made about Himself and then this material on the trilemma (liar, lunatic, or Lord).
Was Jesus God?
When I ask if they believe Jesus was a liar, there is a sharp “No!” Then I ask, “Do you believe He was a lunatic?” The reply is, “Of course not.” “Do you believe He is God?” Before I can get a breath in edgewise, there is a resounding, “Absolutely not.”
One has only so many choices. The issue with these three alternatives is not which is possible, for it is evident that all three are possible. Instead, the question is, “Which is more probable?” Who you decide Jesus Christ is must not be an idle intellectual exercise. You cannot put Him on the shelf as a great moral teacher. That is not a valid option.
Who Did Jesus Claim To Be? King Of Kings?
