Why Jesus Is God, And Others Are Not

Is there evidence to conclude that Jesus is God and all others are not? You might be surprised to learn that we have the capacity today to prove that everything written about Jesus in the New Testament is accurate and reliable.

In recent years, a new group of Liberal Theologians have written books asserting that eighty-five percent of the things attributed to Jesus in the New Testament, He never said or did. These men and women argue that Jesus never claimed to be God, nor did He have the capacity to perform miracles.

When we investigate the evidence for ourselves we find just the opposite.

We discover that people sometimes have agendas. They write their words from a particular view with an intended purpose. We find out that before these books were written, people had already decided that God does not exist and therefore, miracles are not possible. It was for this reason that these men and women determined that what is written about Jesus cannot be true.

Some people have the idea that a person who has achieved a Ph.D. is a reliable source for true and accurate information. Most of us understands that people can make just about anything sound true, though the facts say something completely different.

The truth is, the evidence to support that Jesus is God and the things written about Him in the New Testament are true is overwhelming.

Why Is Jesus God And All Others, Not?

Quite simply, because the empirical evidence which has survived time and decay proves He is God.

You might be surprised by this statement. There are many people in the world today who believe there is no evidence to support the idea that God exists.

To the contrary, there exists a massive number of evidentiary proofs which fully validate Jesus as God—superior to all other gods. I have written  twenty-four books about this evidence, three of which are between 3-4,000 pages.

Let me be clear at the onset that the entire purpose for Jesus coming into the world was to prove that God exists. He ensured that we would be able to make this conclusion by leaving us with empirical facts to support our faith.

If we think that the New Testament is not reliable because it is of such great age and has been copied so many times that the words within are corrupted, we are misinformed.

If we believe the writers of the New Testament embellished their stories about Jesus or that He did not say or do the things written about Him, we are in error.

Writers like myself, who have spent their lives investigating the evidence which validates the authenticity of the New Testament, are certain the narratives about Jesus are true and reliable because the evidence supports this conclusion. This book is the result of my 43 years of research, writing, lecturing, and publishing evidence for the historical validity of Jesus in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

This book presents facts that most people have never heard or considered. This work was written for the purpose of giving you an intellectual, evidence-based reason to believe that Jesus is singular and transcendent above all others.

People Who Display the Greatest Resistance to God, Are Often the Closest to Salvation

See and Find Me

It is interesting that a person will search out Christian web sites where evidence for God is put forth, in order to dispute His existence. A person who genuinely does not believe something, does not need to convince others. When a matter is settled in our mind, we are finished with the struggle to understand it.

The fact that a person is vigorously active in visiting the web sites of those who disagree with them, is a sign that this person is really not that convinced that their position is correct. I have been a follower of Jesus for over 40 years. In times past, when I was still developing my thoughts, I would often visit the sites of atheists and seek a dialogue with those who frequent these places. As I realized that what I believed about God, was the truth, I no longer needed to seek affirmation from those who do not believe.

It is a fact that the people who are often the most vocal against God, are individuals who are the closest to surrendering their lives to Him. As a person becomes more and more convinced by the evidence for God, they will often become quite militant in their opposition of those who do believe. I have observed this phenomenon quite often in the types of comments that are made on this web site, in response to articles that I have written.

Yeshu: The Historical Jesus

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Jesus As A Matter Of History

No credible Biblical scholar today believes that Jesus was not a real person of history. The evidence for His existence is so overwhelming, that to deny Jesus lived in Galilee at the time depicted by the New Testament would place any writer in a classification of incompetency.[1]

All opposition to the existence of Jesus has now been refuted; and the fact that He lived and conducted Himself in the events described by the four Gospels of the New Testament, is incontrovertible.

A recent publication by Richard Carrier, entitled: “On the Historicity of Jesus,” fabricates a new theory that the Jesus who is alleged to have existed in the New Testament, was a sort of mystical being—not a physical entity.

This is similar to the atheist—theoretical physicists of late, who cannot explain the fine-tuning of our universe by any naturalistic cause. In an attempt to remove any possibility that an intelligent Being is responsible for the Cosmos, the newest hypothesis—described as the, “multiverse,” designates our universe as one of an infinite number of other parallel universes (which no one can see). If we have an unlimited number of universes, then we would certainly expect to find at least one like ours that is finely tuned for life.

Although cosmologists do not have the ability to see beyond our own universe to test this theory, nevertheless, this has become the newest explanation for why the universe appears to be designed for life. This allows the atheist to make the assertion that God is not necessary as the source of our universe, since in their view, it came into existence by itself.[2]

Much like the multiverse, which no one can see, Richard Carrier also creates an ancient mystical Jesus, which no one could see, who was simply a figment of the imagination.

This premise ignores the vast evidence that exists from the Jewish Talmud. The ancient scribes of Israel who chronicled Jesus in their writings, had no interest in preserving any historical information about Him, nor Christianity. The Jews who recorded their commentary about Jesus in the Talmud, regarded Him and His followers as the latest of many cult religions of their day. These leaders of Israel had no desire to document the existence of Jesus, His crucifixion, nor those who followed Him—yet this is precisely what they accomplished by their adversarial comments regarding His arrest and execution. These records were written during the period of history in which Jesus is reported to have been in Israel, as described by the narrative of the New Testament scriptures.[3]

Regardless of how many inferences Richard Carrier makes in his book that the historical Jesus is a fabrication, we must understand that this publication exists—exclusively as a result of a large financial grant from an atheist organization. It should be obvious to those who read Mr. Carrier’s book, that his entire purpose for writing—to deny the historicity of Jesus, was because he was paid to refute the existence of Jesus Christ.[4]

In essence, Richard Carrier is a mercenary for the atheist cause, not a literary or historical scholar who has followed the evidence to a credible conclusion. The facts are, Mr. Carrier cannot refute the certainty of recorded history. Both the Jews and the Romans would rather that Jesus had not existed, yet they found themselves recording many of the events of His life and death—in their preserved records of history. The evidence of antiquity demands that Jesus existed as a real person in Palestine during the period of history in which the New Testament describes Him.

Most people are intelligent enough to understand that a person who has already determined what the end result will be, before he begins to write—cannot be objective in his conclusions.
