Jesus Is The Greatest Person In History

We live in a diverse world. Recently, I had a conversation with someone who is a Buddhist. In the past, I’ve had conversations with people who are Atheists and Agnostics. Obviously, these people have different religious beliefs than I do. So, why should a Buddhist convert to Christianity? Why should an atheist begin to believe in God?
In Hebrews 3, the write challenges his readers to, “…consider Jesus… the apostle and High Priest of our confession.” The book of Hebrews was probably written to people who had a Jewish heritage. The writer challenges them to “…consider Jesus…”
But why should someone consider Jesus? Because Jesus was “the Apostle and Hight Priest of our confession.” The recipients of this letter understood what the High Priest did… he offered sacrifices for the people once a year. But Jesus is the new High Priest…. Through His death on the cross, no other sacrifices are needed.
The writer says Jesus, “…. has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses…” Whoa! That was a MAJOR statement to make to people of a Jewish background. To them, Moses was the great law-giver. Moses was great! So, for someone to say that Jesus was greater than Moses well, that was a major statement! But, Jesus was greater than Moses! And that was why these people should “…consider Jesus.”
Jesus Christ is the greatest person in the history of the world. No one else has died and risen again! Today, if you are not a believer, I encourage you to consider Christ.
