We live in unusual times. News outlets and public figures promote agendas and they gain influence by questioning the authenticity and integrity of their competitors. Skepticism has become a reflexive response.
And in the midst of this culture of doubt, followers of Jesus continue to declare and devote themselves to a remarkable story: that a middle-eastern man, who was born over 2000 years ago, lived a flawless life of love for his neighbor, died, and then rose from the grave – all because he was the Son of God. It’s a story that generates plenty of suspicion. But if it’s true, it changes everything.
