Searching for Jesus Christ

Some people find Jesus Christ easily and others have a more circuitous route involving a lot of difficulty.

Professor Jordan Peterson seems to fall into the latter category.

In truth, Jesus Christ finds us, as the Good Shepherd looking for His lost sheep, but our experience is that we find Christ. We do so because He enters our life in Providence. This is the advantage of having access to a good preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The unique character and conversation of Jesus Christ

I have just watched a video of Jordan Peterson’s wrestling with the historical Jesus and the narrative around His life. He has come so far as to acknowledge Christ as ‘the best that a man can be’.

Consider this simple point. If Jesus did not make the extraordinary statements in the four Gospels, then who did? His answers and topics are quite unique.

I have published blogposts on these:

Seven testimonies to Jesus Christ

John Bunyan had a long struggle to find Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour, detailed in his book Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners and he wrote Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ.

Jesus pronounced a Woe upon those who hindered access to salvation:

“Jesus said: Also, woe unto you lawyers! for you load men with difficult loads, and you yourselves do not touch the loads with one of your fingers … Woe unto you, lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge.”

Jesus Christ: Luke 11:46,52

The apostle Paul says much the same in writing to the Thessalonians about such wicked behaviour:

“Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins always”. Paul added the solemn comment: “for wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.”

The apostle Paul: 1Th 2:16
