Most folks think of Jesus

as the man who started Christianity.

But it turns out

he wasn't just a man,

and he didn't just start Christianity.

Most folks think of Jesus

as an other-worldly religious leader,

a great moral teacher,

or maybe they don't think of him at all.

But he had dirty feet,

partied,

cooked breakfast

and got himself killed.

Who was this guy?

Why did people hate him so much?

And why should I care?

Whether you've never looked closely at the Christian faith or you've dismissed it as irrelevant, you owe yourself a glance at a Jesus unencumbered by stereotypes. You might be surprised at what you see.
