Overflowing with Thankfulness: How Christmas Changed Everything
Who is Jesus? No question can be more consequential than this. Was he a man or just a myth? A righteous prophet or just a religious charlatan? Or perhaps he was simply a really good guy whose followers blew his legacy out of proportion.
According to a Jewish Pharisee named Paul, who lived around the same time as Jesus (born around 6 AD), and thousands of other first-century believers, Jesus was “the image of the invisible God...for God was pleased to have his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross” (Colossians 1:15, 19-20).
This holiday season at The Story, we will take a closer look at the personal, intimate letter Paul wrote to a handful of first-century people who were convinced that Jesus was more than just a man - but that he is God in the flesh, and that he alone is worthy of our worship.Listen on iTunesListen on Spotify
