What will the world do with Jesus?

Posted: April 12, 2006 in Uncategorized

Did you happen to catch 2020’s report on James Tabor’s book, The Jesus Dynasty? This man writes and researches and yet denies the biblical account of Jesus. He denies the virgin birth. Tabor suggests that Jesus father was probably named Pantera.
I won’t go into detail about his belief system other than the fact that he says he is trying to restore authentic Christianity.
There has been a lot of interest in Jesus over the last couple of years. Books like The Davinci Code and The Jesus Dynasty portray a different Jesus than the biblical account. However, the world is interested in learning about Jesus. This is the time for the Christian to show authentic Christianity and stand for the truth in a loving, gracious way. I am a follower of Christ. I believe that Tabor is not correct in his understanding. It seems easier for people to re-create Jesus into the image they want him to be. It seems foolish to admit that you believe Jesus was born to a virgin mother. It’s easier to say Jesus was a good man and a good teacher. Hardly anyone would be opposed to saying Jesus was a great man. However, how many are willing to say Jesus is the risen Lord. In our society today, I believe we must be relational and accepting. However, we must not be willing to compromise the Word of God. We must teach truth. Let us continue to pray for ways to share the truth of Christ to those who truly are seeking.
