Wednesday Night Review

We've been talking about myths people have for a while now, calling the series "Biblical Myth Busters" and tonight we talked about the myth of the "Prophet Jesus." We went on a quest to expose the myth that Jesus was simply a good teacher. Here are a few points they were given to think about:
  1. Even in Jesus' day people were confused about who Jesus really was. Jesus called Peter "blessed" for knowing the truth that Jesus was the Son of God (Matthew 16:13-17).
  2. Jesus can forgive sins (Mark 2:5-12). What "good teacher" has the ability to do that?
  3. Jesus has power over life and death (spiritually and physically), since when do "good teachers" have that kind of power? (John 8:51; 10:17-18; 11:25)
  4. Jesus says that he and the father are the same person; if you knew one then you would know the other (John 14:7-11).
  5. If Jesus was such a "good teacher" then either everything he said was true and good or he was lying, and therefore not a "good teacher".
