Hello Friends and Family,
In today’s message we dive into Luke 1:1-4 and ask the question is it true? Is what Luke reports in his writing true or false, because these are the only two options when it comes to this question, it’s either true or it’s false. If you say it’s false then there are only two logical options to consider:
- They made it all up, and it’s the biggest hoax and lie ever told in the world, which would make it the greatest conspiracy of all time, leading to the argument of the conspiracy theory. This is view isn’t entertained by many scholars, but there have been many popular writings and even movies written based on this theory.
- They didn’t intentionally make it all up, they heard what they believed to be true about the person of Jesus, and continued to tell the story based on what they understood to be true, so they were carrying forward the legend of Jesus. This theory is more popular among scholars and the legendary theory has been spun several different ways throughout history.
In our message today Pastor Harold will respond to these two theories over the course of a couple different messages, and the goal is to help the atheist, agnostic, and/or believer solidify why we can put their faith and trust in what Luke has to share with us about Jesus Christ, the Bible, and the church. We hope this message helps grow your faith, and gives you some foundation to argue from when you are asked why you have the hope in your life as a believer.
