Historically, no one denies that Jesus walked this earth about 2000 years ago; that he did remarkable wonders and acts of charity and that he died a horrible death on a Roman cross just outside Jerusalem.
Spiritually, many have accepted Christ as a great man, great teacher or great prophet but His inspired followers did not mince words when they declared Him to be God (John 10:30-38,Mat 16:13-17, Mark 14:61-64, John 14:6, Heb 1:8, Col1:16,John 12:40-41). Therefore any type of intellectual compromise calling Jesus a 'Good man' is logically inconsistent!


Because either HE IS A LIAR or A LUNATIC or LORD AND GOD!

Since Jesus Himself claimed to be God, when in reality He was man, His claims are either true or false.
If false, he was a liar misleading the multitudes


He was a lunatic believing himself to be God!

If all believe Jesus to be a GOOD MAN, how can He also be a LIAR and LUNATIC?
There remains only one logical and consistent alternative ... HE MUST HAVE BEEN TELLING THE TRUTH!

You may argue HE WAS A LEGEND!
But this cannot be because:
-The Gospels were written 30 to 50 years after His crucifixion (unlike legends which are written some 300 years after some event!)
-Some of the early Christian CREEDS proclaiming the LIFE, DEATH and RESURRECTION date back to 3 to 10 years after the crucifixion.
-If Jesus' claim to deity were a myth, the early Jewish opponents would have presented FACTS to prove it wrong!(In fact, the rabbis in Jesus' day never denied Jesus' claims that He was God. Instead they called Him a liar and had Him tried for BLASPHEMY!

Ultimately, you will be confronted with this question:
BUT WHO DO YOU SAY I AM? (Mat 16:15)
And what would your answer be?
