A Man Named Jesus Once Stood in Our Midst

who do you say that I am, reJesus, missional Christ

"The great English philosopher, John Stuart Mill, once commented that mankind can hardly be too often reminded that there was once a man named Socrates. That is correct, but it is even more important to remind mankind that a man named Jesus Christ once stood in their midst." (Adolf von Harnack, What is Christianity?)

We so easily forget the profound, mysterious, and transformative reality of Jesus Christ. Of Him, the authors of Holy Scripture cannot speak too highly...

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory... (John 1:1, 14)

Let us pray. Let us act. Let us trust God.
