God Loves You!

Much has been written about Jesus and many are the beliefs and questions about who he was and what he did. While some have questioned the reliability of the gospels and whether Jesus was a real person, there is sufficient evidence to support both the fact that Jesus was a real, historical person, and that the gospels are reliable sources of information about Jesus' life, purpose, ministry, death and resurrection. If you have questions about the evidence for a historical Jesus or whether the gospels are reliable, check out Probe Ministries or Mark Robert's resources.
