Behold the Man!

Men have tried for years to prove or disprove what the life and death of Jesus meant to the world.  The recorded events of prophesy and of His life are explained in detail in the Bible.  Yet there are many who sincerely refute this historical record.  Unfortunately, they are sincerely wrong.    Here is a written snapshot of one man’s sincere belief:

‘Neath starry skies, the shepherds came

Led by the angel choir.

A child was born to take our shame

And set our souls on fire.


When as a child, He tried to teach,

The wise men were surprised.

To find a boy who knew to preach,

With words so undisguised.


For many years He worked with wood

Until the time had come

For Him to serve the common good

His Father said, “My Son.”


A mountain top He went to pray.

The devil tempted Him.

The spoken Word kept him at bay.

and kept the Lord from sin.


 Twelve men he chose to spread the Word–

The first of many more.

They weren’t too sure of what they heard,

But they could not ignore.


The miracles that He performed–

He called Himself God’s son.

The tortured lives that He transformed

Made Him the Holy One.


He taught His followers to pray,

First giving God their praise.

Believe in Him, and come what may,

His answers would amaze.


The leaders of that ancient time

Felt threatened by this Man.

The Son of God charged with a crime

Yet this was still God’s plan.


The Roman court soon heard their cries.

He knew it was His time.

They nailed HIs hands and then His feet,

Just like a guilty man.


His human life came to an end.

For all the world to see.

Then down to hell He did descend

To set the captives free.


His Father’s plan was incomplete

Until He rose again.

Both death and hell He did defeat

To God He did ascend..


He promised them before He rose

That they would have a place

To give them peace from all their foes

And see Him face to face.


The promise that to them He gave

Still works for us today.

He came to earth to heal and save

Forever and a day.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)

And why  isn’t even more written about what He did?  Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written. (John 21:25)
