Jesus Is No Fairytale

Some people like to think of God’s Word, the Bible, as a collection of myths and legends. There are some who believe that Jesus was a mythical person or a prophet or a good teacher. He had a good message of morality and love, but as far as being the Son of God or Messiah, they’re not willing to go that far. What if there were eyewitnesses to Jesus who were willing to die for what they saw? That’s who Peter was. He wrote:

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. – 2 Peter 1:16 (NIV)

Peter says that those with him did not make up the stories about Jesus. They saw Him, in the flesh, do all of the things that Scripture says He did. They saw Him fulfill prophecy. They saw Him heal people and perform miracles. They saw His majesty. Jesus Christ is no mythical figure. Jesus Christ is no mere teacher or prophet. Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords. Whether you believe it or not, it’s the truth.

    I love your last sentence “Whether you believe it or not, it’s the truth.” It really animates the fact that we have a choice to believe, and just because some of us will choose not to, doesn’t mean that God lacks existence. I’m curious how more people would think if there were eyewitnesses of Jesus’s miracles and sacrifice here today. Would we listen? Would we think it just as mythical because we haven’t seen it ourselves? This goes into faith, which I actually just wrote a post on, the struggle and the need to grow in faith. It’s so important!
    I look forward to reading more of your posts!
