There seems to be little reason to doubt that there was a real historical figure, that we know as Jesus of Nazareth, who lived in the first century and travelled around Roman occupied Galilee and Judea. He spoke against the political and religious authorities and ultimately was executed. Whatever you believe happened next, it is certain that his movement survived, preserving and developing his teachings as it spread across the Roman world; His followers became known as Christians.
So far, so fairly uncontroversial. But as Christians we believe that the truth goes much deeper.
Some people come to believe this in a sudden flash of inspiration. For others it’s more of a slow burn. Wherever you are on this journey, we would suggest that time spent discovering Jesus is time well spent!
