excellent video, very clear and full of information
This information is important to be passed on these days! Thanks
Great job MaryJo!
Trying to make the New Testament a myth, based on myths, is not easy. The Jesus Myth Theorists are exceptional. They excel in this undertaking. Like no other band of zealots in history, they proudly feature absolute silliness and laughable, fictitious nonsense to rip Christianity. They have no shame and express not a hint of embarrassment. Just the opposite. They enjoy throwing slop around. Why, you wonder? Not quite as hysterical, but close, we see real scholars follow them like groupies, frantically refuting their every jot and tittle, as if they pose a real danger. I hate to say this. (Hate even more that it is true.) Some Christians feel defensive about their credentials as intellectual, scholarly apologists. After all, GOD hasn't chosen many rich in the assets of this world to plead his case. Rather, he specializes in the foolish and base things to confound the wise. To prove the intellectual soundness of our faith, we go toe-to-toe with just about anyone who throws a challenge our way, even Jesus myth theorists who possess absolutely no foundation in fact.Giving this loony fringe the time of day thrills them. They must be on to something, they think, to stir the Christian nest. Proving their nonsense is nonsense is preposterous and encourages more nonsense.
Hi Mary JoThe NT Superhero Jesus character is definitely a fictional character…I mean are we supposed to believe that right now there is, somewhere on earth or in the cosmos, a fishing-eating 2,000 year old ancient man with stab wounds in his hands, feet, and side? And he has superhero powers?Hmmm, and he’s supposed to come back ‘surfing’ the clouds? Or on a flying ‘police’ horse?Mary Jo, do you seriously call this real stuff and not stuff of legend? Brett Strong…the next wave is here and I am He…disarming Christian Apologists with utter ease…Hey, Mary Jo, would love to debate you on the NT Jesus, that he has to be fiction …shoot me an e-mail if you’re game…anyways, have a great day and may your Jesus faith serve you well…later
The measure of the reality of Jesus Christ isn't what happened 2000 years ago, but what is happening today in the lives of millions of believers. I am a recovered "30 year- skid row- 5th per day alcoholic" that has found freedom in Christ I never had before. God, through Christ is my life support, plain and simple. No serious historian argues against the existence of Jesus Christ. He simply left too big of a footprint in history to be ignored. What can be debated is who he was, what he taught, and whether or not those teachings are true. It is my belief in review of the evidence from then, and the evidence in my own life today, that He was God come in flesh, who dwelt among us to teach us, who died to redeem us, who rose to validate the previous two, and who lives now to minister to us until He comes again to take us into the eternity He has prepared for us.
Thanks Mary Jo - loved this! So helpful to encourage us to really dig into the stories themselves and get the information first-hand. thanks!
