Who is Jesus?
"If Jesus was not God in human flesh, Christianity is exploded," writes John Stott. "We are left with just another religion with some beautiful ideas and noble ethics; its unique distinction has gone."
If Jesus is not who he said he was, and if he did not do what he said he had come to do, the whole superstructure of Christianity crumbles in ruins to the ground.
Is it plausible that Jesus was truly divine?
Why was he crucified?
Did he really rise from the dead?
And what might this mean for us?
John Stott's clear, classic statement examines the historical facts on which Christianity stands. Here is a sound, sensible guide for all who seek an intellectually satisfying explanation of the Christian faith.
Jesus certainly existed. His existence as an historical figure is vouched for by pagan as well as Christian writers,' says John Stott. Who was Jesus? Why was he crucified? Did he really rise from the dead? We need answers to these questions in order to understand the basics of Christianity. The author offers a clear and full explanation, showing what it means to be a Christian today.
