When we say that to know true reality, one must know Jesus, then that begs the question, is Jesus real? Was there a real historic person or did a group of men just make up his story to start a religion? First, He lived His life out in full public view, so it was obvious to everyone who lived during that time that He was a real person. The men who followed Him and those who wrote His story were known as honest men and men of integrity. They were persecuted, tortured and all but one was martyred for their testimony and none of them denied what they had written and professed to be true. There were also many secular historians who wrote concerning the Lord Jesus such as Josephus, the famous Jewish historian and Tacitus the Roman historian. The philosopher Rousseau stated, “Shall we suppose the evangelical history a mere fiction? Indeed it bears no marks of fiction….On the contrary , the history of Socrates, which no one presumes to doubt, is not so well attested as that of Jesus Christ.” When Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled to the island of St. Helena, his only book was a Bible which he read cover to cover and stated, “I know men; and I tell you that Jesus Christ is not a man.” He went on to state how that the Lord Jesus is God and how he had been filled with awe. William Shakespeare wrote, “I commend my soul into the hands of God, my creator, hoping and assuredly believing through the merits of Jesus Christ my Savior to be made partaker of life everlasting.” The Lord Jesus is real and is to be believed.
