Dave Sterrett on the Bible's Unified Presentation of Jesus

The Bible was written by at least forty authors, who wrote the books over a span of sixteen hundred years. God chose these authors from every walk of life:  they were kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, poets, scholars, and statesmen. Nevertheless, together these writers presented a unified portrait of Jesus Christ:
  • He was born in humble circumstances in the land of Israel.
  • He was a real man who had typical daily responsibilities as a carpenter.
  • He was God in the flesh, the perfect demonstration of God to mankind.
  • He was sinless and served as the perfect sacrifice for man's sinful condition.
  • He suffered a horrible death on the cross but rose again, conquering death and making the way for eternal life to all who will believe in Him.1
Stand firm in Christ,
Chase
