Jesus stands out in history like no other person. Tens of millions call Him Lord and claim to follow Him. Countless others admire and study Him, while still others try to ignore Him – only they can’t. Jesus is unavoidable!
He is also deeply mysterious. It’s not because we know so little about what He did or said. Rather it is the exact opposite. He remains a mystery because we do know the things He did and said. He puzzled His contemporaries, and He puzzles us now. Why?
Jesus acted as if He was in charge!
Jesus’ followers claimed he was in charge, even after he died.
God is in charge now, because Jesus is here!
- Matthew 4:23 - 25
