Who speaks like this?

Wrestling with the words of Jesus week by week, I’m always struck – it would take an enormous amount of faith to believe that these were the ramblings of a mere man, an unhinged, uneducated first century middle eastern peasant in his early thirties. They still represent a massive qualitative step forward to the ethical teachings we have two thousand years later, even in a society that has to some degree been shaped by his words.

Another reason for belief to add to the mix.

Disciple, where else would you go today, when He has the words of eternal life?
