Jesus is a phenomenal example of wisdom, love and power. This has to be balanced with his claims of being God in the flesh who has existed forever. This creates a problem for many people. We want to think of Jesus well, but we don’t want him to be Lord over us – our hearts are in rebellion to God. However – you can’t have Jesus’ goodness without his Lordship. If his claims are lies, and he knows it – he is not good, but deeply evil. If his claims are lies, and he doesn’t know it – he is crazy. But, if his claims are true – He is very good, and he is also Lord of all.
- John 7:25 - 36
