HISTORY

 
 

God has revealed Himself to us throughout history.

 
     
 

Without taking the time right now to take a comprehensive comparative worldview course, let's begin with a few eyewitness accounts of how God revealed himself to us. You may then ask yourself,

"Is there really any comparison to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?"

 
     
 
 
     
 

"In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs."

Hebrews 1

 
     
     
 

"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us."

1 John

 
     
     
 

"For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, 'This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.' We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit."

2 Peter 1:16-21

 
     
 
 
     
 

Our entire history - past, present and future - may be summed up by four themes:
Creation, Fall, Redemption and Restoration.

So turn off your TV and turn on the Good News.

You might begin with the book of John (one of the eyewitnesses) and explore other books in the Library (Bible) as the Spirit moves you. Don't forget Revelation 21. It all ends well for those who love and trust their Creator.

Here are some great videos from the Bible Project (short and sweet) on each of those books. Watch these terrific overviews before you jump into each new book.

You might also be interested in a free booklet by Dr. Gary Habermas:
"The Uniqueness of Jesus Christ Among the Major World Religions"
