Jesus vs. The Other Guys (Part 4)
Fact #4 - Jesus made extreme claims.
We're not talking extreme claims like "I can hold my breath for 10 minutes" or "I can burp the entire alphabet without stopping." This is even beyond claims that other religious leaders made. They said they knew the way to God, Jesus said He IS God. This is why you can't categorize Jesus as just a good teacher or moral example. He went around saying things like "I'm going to raise myself from the dead", "I can forgive sins", and "I've always been around", etc. Good teachers and moral example type people don't go around saying crazy, whacked out things. If they do, we don't trust them anymore, right? Unless, of course, they could prove that their apparently crazy claims were actually true. Jesus did, people saw it, they wrote it down; it's called the Bible.
