The Story of Jesus - August 31, 2020

The story of Jesus reads a bit like a scrapbook. Headline clippings, Jesus’ favorite stories and lesson outlines, Luke’s snapshot of Jesus riding in Peter’s boat. Matthew took the group photo when the seventy followers met for a party after the first mission trip. John pasted a wedding napkin from Cana in the book as well as a funeral program from Bethany. There are so many other things Jesus did. In fact, in his gospel John says, “If they were all written down, each of them…I can’t imagine a world big enough to hold such a library of books” (John 21:25 The Message).

Who was this man? Jesus Christ. No question matters more. Consider reading the entire story, from the Bethlehem manger to the vacated tomb. And keep in mind that the final entries of the story are yet to come, including the snapshot of you and your Savior at heaven’s gateway.
