PostSubject: Evidence   Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:57 am

I was reading an article tonight from www.dare2share.org and it had some great facts in it proving that the Bible is true and that Jesus is real and who He claimed to be. So I thought I'd share those facts with you.

"The fact of the matter is that we have four eyewitness accounts of Jesus' existence that were written within a generation of His time on earth. The New Testament books, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are considered some of the most reliable historical documents in the world.

And here are a few other things to consider-

The Encyclopedia Britannica uses over 20,000 words to describe Jesus, which is more than Aristotle, Cicero, Alexander, Julius Caesar, Buddha, Confucius, Mohammed, or Napoleon.

Sorry, but the pretty doggone smart folks at the Britannica generally do their homework before they use 20,000 words about someone who 'might be' a myth.

Eleven of Jesus' disciples were tortured and murdered for spreading the message of Jesus. Wait - they would all die for something they knew to be a lie?

The gospel message of Jesus spread from a band of 12 men in a tiny region of Israel to thousands of people across thousands of miles to Rome in just 30 years. Wait, an entire civilization being duped by an obvious copycat religion?

Plus we have non-Biblical references to Jesus coming from Roman historians, government officials, and even the Jewish literature of that time. Wait one more time, the people that wished Jesus was a myth write about Him? Not a great way to get rid of a copycat Sun god - wouldn't you say?

Finally-

There are over 5000 historical source documents to support the validity of the New Testament, much more than any other ancient book. All the Gospels were published within the lifetimes of eyewitnesses, and yet there's no record of anyone ever proving them false.
The Romans tried for 250 years to stamp out Christianity before accepting it as their state religion. By that time the books of the New Testament had been a published fact for two centuries.
The Bible recounts a 6000 year history of God first saying He'll do something and then doing it. You know them as prophecies, and non-Christian history books document their fulfillment all over the place.

Why?

Because the idea of Jesus being a myth is a myth that in my opinion is more easily busted than proving that a jet engine really can't fly a Chevy.

The biggest question you should ask is-

Is Jesus Christ really who He claimed to be - which is God in the flesh and the Savior of the world? This is a question that has already been confirmed - now all you need to do is confirm your place in heaven by trusting in Jesus alone as your only hope of salvation."

That is interesting.
If you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that the lord jesus hath raised him from the dead,thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:9
I'm glad I belive in jesus.

Most "experts" believe that the Bible is nothing more than a child's storybook, and that the men who created it pulled everything out of the air.

However, there are also a lot of experts who are finding evidence (like what was listed) about the existence of Jesus and the validity of the Bible. It's so cool to see how science and history are just catching up with God's Word...

Too many people think that science and religion are mutually exclusive, but that's just not the case.

Oh, wait.... I think I've said that before.
