Sermon: I Believe in the Historical Jesus
Theme: As we affirm Jesus’ and experiences we are more open to our own humanity and needs as we grow closer to God.
Purpose: The congregation will consider their own humanity as a gift from God.
Scriptures: Acts 4:8-12, 23-31 Peter and John speak before the Council speaking of the historical fact of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
1 Corinthians 15:1-11 Paul gives testimony to the historical experience of Christ Jesus.
What is the real proof that Jesus did exist? Is there any proof that the bible is legit? Does the history really matter or is it just about the story? Where is Jesus now? How does a historical Jesus affect our perceptions of God acting in the world today? How do we understand the “reality” of God’s intervention today, because of the way God acted in the birth of Jesus in the world? How do we deal with the areas where we are less certain in Jesus’ history?
