How Can I Make Such a Bold Claim When I Don't Even Know You?
Excellent question. Here is a quick preview of the points I will make:
- Even if it could be proven beyond doubt that the Jesus character described in the Christian bible was based on a real historical person, this person would have died over 2,000 years ago.
- There is only one way an individual can meaningfully be said to have a personal relationship with a deceased person.
- The "personal relationship" you have with a deceased person is fundamentally a relationship you have with yourself.
