Oh man. Nothing should ever surprise anyone anymore, ever.
A Dutch movie direction names Paul Verhoeven has apparently spent the past 20 years with another man writing a book about the life of Jesus. In it he claims that Mary was actually raped by a Roman soldier, and that Mary and Joseph made up the whole Son of God thing. Amazing. You can read about it here.
What’s more, this man claims to be a Catholic. His influence? The Jesus Seminar. Thank you very much. The reality is that no one is going to take the book seriously. Well, most people won’t. I’m sure some people will. verhoeven says that the book will be the most realistic portrayal of Jesus ever published. It seems to me that that book has already been written and published for centuries.
It’s called the Bible.
The reality is that the Bible, time and again, has been proven to be accurate in every way, shape, and form. It has never once been demonstrated to be inaccurate. Not once. We can trust it. We can trust the One who wrote it. We can trust Him for new life now and in eternity.
How about you? Have you written Jesus off or have you written Him into your life?
