Jesus was born in a stable. Jesus was raised to a city with no more than 50 houses on it on a four acre plot of land. Jesus never traveled more than 30 miles from his hometown. If there was an award for most likely to not succeed after his death it would have been given to Jesus. But that’s not what happened.
Every year since Jesus death his impact gets larger. Every year since his death more people follow him. Every year since his death his words and his stories and his ideals are told and retold to billions of people. He never held a title. Never made any money. Never owned a home. Didn’t live very long. We have no idea what he looked like.
It is in Jesus name than desperate people pray, grateful people worship and angry people swear. John Ortberg.
