Questions: Why is Jesus the Only Way? Did Jesus Even Exist?


"Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see." 
Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

“The origin of the physical constants that is getting closer to a good argument.”

“You might convince somebody like me to be a deist, but then suddenly we get Jesus Christ, we get the crucifixion, and we get the resurrection…don’t think that because you’ve convinced somebody of the fine-tuning to be a deist, therefore, he’s got to believe in Jesus.”

Richard Dawkins (The Big Bang Theory)

Why is Jesus the Only Way?

Did Jesus even Exist?

“The idea that Jesus did not exist is a modern notion. It has no ancient precedents. It was made up in the eighteenth century. One might as well call it a modern myth, the myth of the mythical Jesus”

“Despite the enormous range of opinion, there are several points on which virtually all scholars of antiquity agree. Jesus was a Jewish man, known to be a preacher and teacher, who was crucified (a Roman form of execution) in Jerusalem during the reign of the Roman emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was the governor of Judea”

Bart Ehrman (from “Did Jesus Exist?)

Evidence that Jesus Existed

  1. Josephus (A.D. 37-100)
  2. The Gospels and Letters (Luke 1:1-4; John 20:30-31)
  3. Archaeological Discoveries
    • The Galilee Boat
    • Jacob’s Well
    • Pool of Siloam

What about the Death and Resurrection?

“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that He said; if He didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hands is not whether or not you like His teaching but whether or not He rose from the dead.”

    "Jesus told him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.' "
    John 14:6 (NLT)
