Jesus: Liar, Lunatic or Lord?

jesuschrist John 5:19-47.  Those were the three options that C. S. Lewis suggested in his book Mere Christianity.  Look at what Jesus said about himself. If what he said is untrue – and he knew it – he was a liar.  If what he says about himself is untrue – but he didn’t know it – he was delusional.  If what he says about himself is true, then…

  1. He does what God does (19, 36).
  2. He can raise the dead (21,25,29).
  3. He will judge the world (22,30).
  4. He grants eternal life (24,40).

In other words, he is the Lord and Savior of mankind. Who is he to you?

LORD, thank you for sending your only Son to save us from our sins, and to raise us to eternal life at his return.
