Jesus was ...
He was a great preacher whose words still captivate and inspire two thousand years later.
He was a healer who performed incredible miracles including healing the sick, restoring sight to the blind, making the crippled walk again, and even raising the dead.
He was a troublemaker whose criticisms of the powerful and wealthy were matched by his compassion for the weak, vulnerable, and outcasts of society.
He was crucified on a Roman cross as a danger to the Empire as "King of the Jews." This was no accident, because . . .
Jesus was sent by God to die on purpose as the perfect sacrifice that erased the sin of the world by taking upon himself God’s anger for our sin.
