Title: The Real Jesus
Scripture: Luke 1:1-4
Speaker: Tim Spanburg, TimS@ChristCommunityKC.org
"There will be found remaining the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man. I have performed this operation for my own use, by cutting verse by verse out of the printed book, and arranging the matter which is evidently his, and which is as easily distinguishable as diamonds in a dunghill. The result is an octavo of forty-six pages, of pure and unsophisticated doctrines." - Thomas Jefferson, The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth
"You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do." - Anne Lamott
>> Listen to those who knew Jesus
>> The Gospels are written too early to be made up.
>> The early church revered the eyewitnesses
>> There are unexplainable details all over the Gospels
>> Look to the story before the advice
"The Christian says, “Creatures are not born with desires unless satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger: well, there is such a thing as food. A duckling wants to swim: well, there is such a thing as water...If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world...I must keep alive in myself the desire for my true country, which I shall not find till after death; I must never let it get snowed under or turned aside; I must make it the main object of life to press on to that country and to help others to do the same." - C.S. Lewis
