                                              THE CHRIST OF THE BIBLE


More than 1900 years ago there was a Man born contrary to the laws of nature. This Man lived in poverty and was raised in obscurity. He did not travel extensively. Only once (Egypt) did He cross the boundary of the country in which He lived and that was during His exile in childhood.


He possessed neither name, wealth, nor influence. His relatives were inconspicuous, uninfluential, and had neither training nor education.


In infancy He startled a king, in childhood He puzzled the doctors, in manhood He ruled the course of nature, walked upon billows as if pavement and hushed the sea to sleep.


He never practiced medicine, and yet He has healed more broken hearts than all the doctors.

He healed multitudes without medicine and made no charge for His service.


He never wrote a book, yet all the libraries in the country could not hold the books that have been written about Him.


He never wrote a song, and yet He has furnished the theme for more songs than all the songwriters combined.


He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students.


He never led an army, nor drafted a soldier, nor fired a gun, and yet no leader ever had more volunteers who have, under His orders, made more rebels stack arms and surrender with out a shot being fired.


He is the Star of astronomy, the Rock of geology, the Lion and Lamb of zoology. He is the Revealer of the snares that lurk in darkness, the Rebuker of every evil thing that prowls by night, the Quickner of all that is wholesum, the Adorner of all that is beautiful, the Reconciler of all that is contradictory and the Savior of all mankind.


He fills the pages of theology and hymnology. Every prayer that goes to GOD, goes in His name and is ask to be granted for His sake.


Every seventh day the world slows down and multitudes wind their way to worship, respect and pay homage to Him.


The names of past statesmen of Greece and Rome have come and gone. The names of past scientists, philosophers, and theologians have come and gone, but the name of this Man abounds more and more. Time has spread 1900 years between our generation and His crucifixion yet He still lives. Herod couldn't kill Him. Satan couldn't seduce Him, and death could not hold Him.


He stands upon the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory, proclaimed of GOD, acknowleged by angels, adored by saints and feared by devils, as the living, personal Christ, our Lord and Savior………AUTHOR UNKNOWN
