Is Jesus relevant today?
Jesus lived 2000 years ago. What difference does he make in the 21st century? The things that Jesus taught – to love your enemy and turn the other cheek – have certainly transformed lives across the world. But Jesus did not only teach about our relationships to each other, he also taught about our relationship to God. Jesus said he himself was the son of God, our maker, come to visit us and be with us; that he came in order to ransom and reclaim us. Jesus said he was the only one who could give us real life. And then Jesus’ own unique life, and his death and resurrection, backed up the claims he made. Today as much as in the 1st century, what Jesus said is true: “I am the way, the truth and the life – No one comes to the Father except through me”.
