“…if you knew me, you would know My Father also.” – John 8:19
Who is history’s most influential person?
I believe it’s Jesus Christ. Every time we write the date, it’s a testimony to Him. But it’s important to remember that we are directly dependent on Scripture to give us the full view of Jesus. To know Jesus, we need to know Scripture. Jesus said, “Do not think I came to abolish the law or the prophets. I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.” All scripture, from Moses and the Old Testament prophets, to the gospels, and the writings of Paul and John’s Revelation, reveals Jesus to us.
If we ignore Scripture, we will not know Jesus. When we choose what we like and ignore what we don’t, we get a distorted view of Jesus. We get a man-made, politically correct Jesus who is not Jesus at all. Scripture reveals the true Jesus. Jesus reveals God to us. Get to know Jesus and you get to know God.
