Jesus and the future

William Taylor - The Bible describes death as being like a sheet that covers all humanity. Anyone who has lived for longer than a few years will find it impossible to deny it. Death haunts us all. Jesus Christ claims to have absolute authority over death. He's only the one who is able to save us from its harsh reality. No other religious leader has such authority. This makes Jesus not only unique but also essential.

William Taylor - Jesus claimed to be the Messiah, the Son of God. Some of the most persuasive evidence substantiating Jesus’ claims are writings about him centuries before he came. Jesus uses this material to convince his listeners that he is the one they have been waiting for. Coupled with his teaching and actions it makes for a compelling case.

William Taylor - Jesus displays his authority over death through his own resurrection and by bringing other people back to life. He's able to reverse the irreversible, simply by speaking. This makes Jesus, who is full of compassion, strangely frightening. Those who have witnessed his supernatural power could never describe him as ‘merely a person of interest’.
