Many new believers over the centuries have asked the same question, was the man called Jesus Christ just an egomaniac and misguided fool, or a simple teacher who was indeed the Son of God.
In a world plagued by prosperity preachers and spiritual celebrities who can often offer a pseudo-Christianity that is more palatable, 1st John offers an alternative narrative, that stings and offends a modern conscience. Is Jesus God! Did he come to save sinners like me? Does God care about me?
Come and See.
