Many people are celebrating this holiday coming up as the birth of Christ. While there is no Biblical evidence of the calendar date when he was born, it does get people thinking and behaving in a positive manner, spreading good cheer. That is certainly what people need today even those walking their journey with grief. With this in mind, it is a positive step to take a look at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Why? A person with hope and love makes them a better person. A better person is a better father, mother, sister or brother. A better person makes a better family. A better family makes a better world. Christ gives hope and love. Knowing the facts of the resurrection gives hope to a whole lot of people who have been deceived or were just never taught this vital information. May it bring hope, joy and love in your life. We all need that. I know some reading this have no desire to celebrate, and that is ok, but regardless you have reason to be thankful and blessed. Here is the biggest.
Fact number one is Jesus really lived. Within the Babylonian Talmud is this statement, “On the eve of the Passover Yeshu was hanged….” Josephus, a historical writer and no fan, stated, “Ananus brought before the Sanhedrin a man named James, the brother of Jesus who was called the Christ, and certain others….” Tacitus also a Roman historian wrote, “Nero fabricated scapegoats and punished with ever refinement the notoriously depraved Christians…Their originator Christ, had been executed in Tiberius reign by the governor of Judea, Pontius Pilatus.…” Jesus is a historical factual character, not a myth. To be continued…
I look forward to seeing you at grief support group in Henderson this week at 6 p.m.
This is Sunrise Aftercare.
