John: What Will You Do With Jesus?

John 5:30-47

Oxford professor C. S. Lewis challenged his listeners on a radio program 75 years ago with this: “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice.” Though probably not Lewis’s actual words, a number of people over the years have presented this trilemma as “Liar, Lunatic or Lord?” In John 5:30-47 we see that Jesus was clear on his claims. So, what will we do with Jesus’ claims of divine Lordship? The answer to that question is eternally important.
