Rediscovering Jesus
Who was Jesus?

There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to this question. Some worshiped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. Controversy followed Him throughout His life, and has continued 2,000 years after His death.

A few decades after the events of Jesus’ life on earth, a man named Luke wrote a detailed account for a friend–rediscovering Jesus. He asked questions of eyewitnesses, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give an account of just who Jesus really was.

Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus too.

Tell him there are people who have sold their seeing-eye dogs and taken up bird-watching. Tell him there are people who’ve traded in aluminum walkers for hiking boots. Tell him the down-and-out have turned into the up-and-coming and a lot of deadbeats are living it up for the first time in their lives. And three cheers for the one who can swallow all this without gagging.” - Frederick Buechner Peculiar Treasures: A Biblical Who’s Who First Online Service / Christ Community Church Kansas City

Jesus of Nazareth. There have been no shortage of opinions offered, books written, responses given to who Jesus was. Some worshipped Him as God. Others thought Him a criminal. The controversy surrounding Jesus followed Him through His life, and it has continued 2,000 years after His death. There is no masking Jesus’ enormous influence on human history. In the midst of all this noise, who was Jesus? Why is He so important to human history? Is Jesus simply someone who agrees, confirms, and approves of everything we already thought and believed? A few decades after the death of Jesus, a man named Luke was wrestling with those questions with his friend, a friend uncertain as to who Jesus was. So Luke set about rediscovering Jesus. He asked Jesus’ friends, he listened to Jesus’ enemies, and worked hard to give us the account of just who Jesus really was. Luke was convinced Jesus had good news for us. Life changing news. Rest for the anxious. Healing for the broken. Freedom for the trapped. Luke rediscovered Jesus. He wrote about Jesus, so that we could rediscover Jesus.
