Jesus Christ, The Real Story

Jesus Christ, The Real Story

Strip away the myth and tradition, and get ready for an eye-opening journey into the real life of this amazing person who changed the course of world history.  You will meet a man of profound wisdom and kindness, strength and character, with purpose and commitment to a cause greater than any other.

Topics Include:

The First and Second of the Ten Commandments forbid worship of anyone or anything other than God (Exodus 20:2-5). ... Yet Jesus accepted worship and did not rebuke those who chose to kneel before Him and worship...

The question remains: How was Jesus God? If Jesus was God, then who was the Father He spoke of so often? How could Jesus and the Father both be God at the same time?

Where did Jesus come from? Was He created at some point? Did He come into existence when He was born of Mary? Was He an angel? Was He a spiritual essence or "thought" in the Father's mind prior to His human existence?...



"None of the rulers of this age understood this; for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory" (1 Corinthians 2:8, New Revised Standard Version).
