Did Jesus Claim To Be God

Some people say that Jesus did not claim to be God. Is it true? See what Lee Strobel has to say about that.

Lee Strobel asks, “Did Jesus claim to be God? The book Da Vinci Code says no. The book says that the idea that Jesus was God was made up 300 years after he died. However, is that what the historical record shows?

The earliest account of Jesus’ life is the Gospel of Mark. The most common reference to Jesus in Mark is “Son of Man.” (e.g. [...]

Did Jesus arrange for His prophecies to come true

Lee Strobel addresses whether Jesus and his disciples could have arranged for the fulfillment of prophesies. For example, Zechariah 9:9 states that the Messiah would ride a donkey.  Couldn’t Jesus have easily arranged that?  Listen and read on to see why this claim does not stand up to scrutiny.

Why Jesus is the only way

In this video, Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason answers the question, “Why is Jesus the only way?”

As Greg Koukl explains in the video, Jesus is an exclusivist but not because of arrogance. Jesus is an exclusivist because he understands the human problem. The problem isn’t that good or sincere people exist in the world. The problem is that every person in the world has failed to keep God’s law as they were supposed to. Therefore, since God is perfectly just, His justice requires punishment. God does not [...]
