I was raised in a Christian home and grew up going to church. However, as a teenager in my final year in high school, I stepped out of the church and stopped attending. We had changed churches and, my friends from high school were more important to me than trying to make friends with a group of clique-y teenagers who weren't welcoming to a new kid who had started to attend their church.

What eventually brought me back?

The story of Jesus is not worthy of attention except for one thing... an event which, if true, is a complete game changer. It is the one thing that makes Jesus completely different from any prior or subsequent prophet.

The resurrection.

Christianity does not exist because of the Bible. In fact, the Christian Bible did not exist until the fourth century A.D.



The one who saw this has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he speaks the truth, and he has testified so that you also can believe.

Common English Bible (Nashville, TN: Common English Bible, 2011), Jn 19:35.
