“.…he is altogether lovely….”—Song 5:16
Historian Philip Schaff once described the incomparable Jesus Christ in this manner:
“This Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon; without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all the philosophers and scholars combined; without the eloquence of schools, He spoke such words of life as were never spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of orator or poet; without writing a single line, He set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art, and songs of praise than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.”
With such credentials, doesn’t it seem foolish to simply ignore Christ’s message? Shouldn’t we listen to Him and what the Scriptures say of Him?
