NO ONE IS MORE LOVED OR HATED THAN JESUS
This is not surprising, since He’s the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been sung to Him, artwork created of Him, and books written about Him than anyone who’s ever lived. Even our calendar is based off His life, dividing time before and after Him.
Naturally, someone this important will have fans and foes; and a lot of people have an idea of who Jesus is. They may get this idea from TV or movies, maybe from past church experience and Sunday School felt boards, from history books, or maybe from just hearsay. But just because we have ideas of who Jesus is, doesn’t mean we actually know Jesus.
At CBC, we’re all about Jesus—and the only way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says about Him, which includes what He said about Himself.
