As we start to think about Easter, I know that some people believe that Jesus never existed. Let’s say you invite a friend to church and heard this in response:
“Yea, I’m not even sure Jesus was a real person; maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t, but it was so long ago. Who really knows?”
Two ways to respond to this challenge:
- Respond right now! Test yourself; how well could you answer this question without any additional preparation?
- Take your time. Pray, research, and think about your answer. Then, come back and share what you would say.
In your answer, tell us:
- The kind of person you have in mind as you prepared your response (a lapsed christian, a skeptic, a Buddhist).
- Your response. Please keep it short - under 300 words. President Abraham Lincoln offered his famous Gettysburg Address in just 272 words! Insightful brevity can be more impactful than comprehensive answers.
