Whatever view you may take of Christ, you cannot exclude him from history. You may ignore him, but you cannot expunge him. You may neglect or misinterpret him, but you cannot get rid of him. He has left an indelible impression on the condition and institutions of mankind. His name is so ingrained in the fabric of our daily life, that you cannot issue an invoice or execute a deed, or even write a letter without Christ appearing on the face of it in the date – A.D. “anno Domini,” the year of our Lord.
“We cannot but speak the things we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:20
The name of Christ has been ringing through the world during all the centuries that have elapsed since his crucifixion. What is the cause lying at the root of this simple and notorious fact? He led no armies, raised no sedition, employed no violence, and yet his name is above every name. Why was it that the name of a young Galilean carpenter, belonging to an obscure province in the Roman Empire, who had been crucified as a felon, by the Roman and Jewish authorities in Jerusalem, became so influential throughout the Roman Empire as to create a party that at last permeated the army and subverted the very religion and politics of the state? What was there in connection with Jesus Christ that could lead to such a powerful influence?
Consider… “If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep”. 1 Corinthians 15:19, 20 Bro Kent Beeson
