What’s Your Verdict?

“‘What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?’ Pilate asked them” (Mark 15:12 NIV).

Two thousand years ago, in the Middle East, an event occurred that permanently changed the world. Because of that event, history was split. Every time you write a date, you’re using the Resurrection of Jesus Christ as the focal point.

What does this mean to us today? In one sense, Jesus Christ is still on trial. He’s on trial in the heart and mind of every person who has not yet acknowledged him as the Son of God, the Savior of the world.

Was Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or Lord?

Jesus claimed to be the Savior of the world. In John 12:47, he is recorded as saying: “I didn’t come to judge the world. I came to save it.” Some people say, “I believe Jesus was a good teacher.” But he couldn’t be just a good teacher, because a good person would not say, “I’m God, and I’m the only way to Heaven” unless it was the truth.

So, what’s your verdict?

  • Is Jesus who he says he is? Is he God? Or is he a lunatic or a liar?
  • If he is who he says he is, when will you start following what he says to do with your life?

Today, you sit in judgment of Jesus Christ. Just as Pilate asked, “What shall I do then with Jesus who is called the Christ?” you also must decide whether or not he was who he said he was.
