Share The Good News in a Fresh, Ancient Way
Human history hinges on these days
The death and resurrection of Jesus are the most important events that ever happened and every Christian is called to share the good news.
Around this time of year, there are so many great resources published which share the Gospel in powerful ways. In our last post we shared an amazing, but short video defending the resurrection of Jesus. Today I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite videos sharing the story of the Gospel.
You see, the Gospel doesn't start with the cross. It starts way back in Genesis. In order to share the gospel, one needs to understand the over-arching story (aka "metanarrative") that makes the good news, good news.
Ravi Zacharias has pointed out that if you tell a good Hindu that Jesus was God who became a man and died for our sins, the Hindu's first thought would be "What did Jesus do wrong?"
Or in other words, if Jesus was in a God-like caste, what evil thing did he do that demoted him to being a human? He must have been a bad man.
The reason the Hindu couldn't understand that very simple explanation of the Gospel is that he didn't understand the metanarrative of Creation, Fall, and Redemption.
Christians often forget that people who have grown up in the West also often don't understand this over-arching story. That's a big reason why the good news doesn't make sense to them.
That's why I love this video by The Bible Project. In just 5 minutes and 47 seconds, they do a fantastic job explaining the problem of sin and the need for a savior. Be sure to check out "Messiah"
