Is it extreme to say that Jesus is the one man in all of history that nobody can really ignore? What is so special about him that he stands above all the influential figures that have ever walked in this world? It all hinges on the Resurrection! If it never happened then Jesus is nothing. But if he truly conquered sin and death then such a man demands our full attention.
Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except though me” (John 14v6). This is to say that there is no other way to eternal truth and to eternal life. It sounds terribly arrogant! Or it would be if it were not for the fact that Jesus proves this in in his death and resurrection. Who else has conquered the grave? Who else has displayed the ability to replace death with new life?
If it is true it is not a statement to be lightly dismissed but to be earnestly embraced. For without Jesus, because of our sin, we are cut off from God the Father and have no hope of eternal life. And, if it is true, it is hardly arrogant but rather the most loving thing to say. For withholding the only hope of a cure for death is surely heartless.
We believe Jesus cannot be ignored – it is truly a matter of life or death. To see more please watch a three minute video on the following website by clicking, “What is Christianity?”
