Many acknowledge that Jesus was an extraordinary man. Clearly His teachings have influenced the world for centuries. For instance, there are probably more songs written about Jesus and more music inspired by Him than any other person who has ever lived on earth. His life has certainly impacted the Western world more than any other individual. Our calendar system of dating is an acknowledgement of Jesus's birth.

Consider Jesus's claims and the evidence contained in the Bible:
  • He healed people and performed other miracles
  • He rose from the dead
  • He lived a life without sin
  • His life was given so you might be joined to God
  • He is God
If these claims are true, than Jesus clearly has an advantage over all other spiritual teachers. You should give careful consideration to His claims. After all you would take time to carefully choose your next music teacher or your next music school. Why not equally take time to consider something that is of vital importance to your future and your life.

 If you are interested in studying the life of Jesus and comparing him to others we recommend first of all that you read the Gospel of John and the other Gospels. There are several websites with Bible translations available. Here are two links on different websites to the 1st chapter in John: 1st link & 2nd link
