What if a man could cure all kinds of diseases and medical disorders, mental and physical, with a word or a touch of his hand; what if he could read peoples' minds; what if he knows of a certain fish with a certain kind of coin in its stomach and tells his friend to cast out his line, then causes this fish to be caught; what if he can cause a small amount of food to multiply enough to feed thousands of people and still have some leftovers; what if he can cause dead people to come back to life; what if he could turn plain water into fine wine; what if he could control the weather by speaking to it; what if he was able to walk on water; what if people could be cured of illness by just touching his clothes; what if he could raise people from the dead;
What if he knows the future and knew exactly when, why, and how he would die; what if on one occasion his face shone like the sun and his clothes appeared white as light; what if he could cause a tree to shrivel up and die by just speaking to it; what if when he was arrested and taken to jail, stripped, spit at, hit with fists and sticks, lied about, and beaten severely, he didnít even defend himself; what if when he died an earthquake occurred and a huge curtain was torn apart from top to bottom, rocks split in two, graves broke open and dead people were brought back to life; and what if, after this man was dead for three days, he came back to life and came out of a sealed and guarded tomb? Would you believe him when he tells you that he is God? I do! This man lived on earth for about 33 years. You can read about Him in the Holy Bible. Start with the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
