There’s no middle ground in assessing someone who makes the kinds of claims Jesus makes. He can only be either God incarnate or a total lunatic. Every person must decide which he is for themselves, with eternal consequences. For he makes eternal claims about himself. He claims that people who obey his words escape death. Then he claims that Abraham, the father of the faithful who lived thousands of years earlier, longed for and welcomed Jesus’ coming. Then to top it off, he claims to be far more significant than Abraham – being eternal. Christians are people who weigh his claims and declare him the Son of God and key to life. What will you make of Jesus?
