Jesus, who was He? Historians have tried their best to give an account of the character and life of Christ on earth and many that don't even believe in the claims He Jesus made of Himself have been so fascinated by the daring attitude that He displayed even against the Authorities of the time.
A careful examination of the available literature clearly depicts Christís humble beginnings on earth. By human analysis, his birth was questionable. He never had a Biological father and the man who took the responsibility of providing parental care was a carpenter and history tells us so little about him. His mother was just an ordinary girl who kept her chastity and virginity but one day received a strange visitor who told her things that at first, terrified her. She was told she would give birth to a son through the power of the Holy Spirit and although she didn't understand what that exactly meant she went against all odds and risked her life to carry a baby whose dad she couldn't account for.
Between the age of 13 and 29years, the life of this Historical Jesus is not clearly defined. At the age 30years He appeared in public making claims that an ordinary human being could not dare make. He strongly made claims even of being Lord over a coming kingdom, a Claim which many of His contemporaries found offensive and treasonous. And for that they crucified Him like a common criminal.
Then something that amused many people happened. One of His claims came to pass. He had claimed that if he was killed, in three days He would come back life and for sure He did come back to life. Alive and well!
The question is, what about the many other claims he made, are they also not going to come pass? If a Man who at first was mistaken for a rebellious citizen of the Roman Empire could keep his word of coming back to life after death, what can stop any sane human being to believe in all his other claims and promises?
The historical Jesus is trust worthy. Try to trust his promises and see if he will not fulfill each one of them if you follow what He has said about those promises. If He does not fulfill them, He never existed and History has led millions astray. But before you settle on that conclusion, try to put your trust in the claims of the historical Jesus and see if they are real or not.

Very compelling. John 14:1-6 comes to mind. Historians and scientist point to the truth of God and His glorious Son, all the time! Keep writing and drawing others to Christ!

Very informative. Your message was very clear.

It would have been easier to read if you double space between paragraphs. I noticed some grammatical errors that could be easily corrected. For example, one space before the year.

This is an interesting devotion that encourages people to seek out Jesus and decide for themselves. Double, triple check your work, having someone else read it aloud well cut down on some of the typos and missing words. But I can feel your passion and you have an elegant way of putting words to paper.
