Honest Men: An Expositional Treatise Of The Life, Death, And Resurrection Of Jesus

The events that took place during the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are empirically validated by history. Today, any person can know for certain that the New Testament narrative regarding Jesus, is true, accurate, and honest. This book is a reasoned and intelligent examination of these events through the lens of history.

Many people are unaware that there are hundreds of non-biblical documents which describe Jesus of Nazareth as present in Jerusalem during the same period of history that the New Testament Gospels describe Him. These records from the Roman Senate, Jewish Talmud, and various other Greek sources, fully validate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, in cooperation with the Gospel narratives.

Jesus claimed that all of the events that took place during His appearance on earth were predicted in the pages of the Old Testament. Beginning with Moses, through the Prophets, and the Psalms, incredible and impossible predictions were made concerning the Messiah.

When Jesus was resurrected on the third day, He stood in the midst of His disciples and they were deeply troubled. They found it impossible to believe that the man standing there before them was really the same Jesus that they had seen crucified. In response, Jesus said to them:

“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”

Then Jesus said to them:

“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me”

And then Jesus “opened their understanding so that they could comprehend the Scriptures.”

What were these ancient scriptures that Jesus recounted to the disciples that proved that He had fulfilled all 400 of the Messianic Prophecies and was therefore the true Messiah?

They are the very same prophecies that are contained within this book. From the beginning of the Bible, through every page that predicted and described the Messiah, “Honest Men” recounts all the events that concern the coming of Jesus into the world.

“This book will take you through every part of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, in context with all the Old Testament scriptures. By the time that you finish this book, your knowledge and understanding for who Jesus really is and what He has accomplished for you, will be immensely magnified.” -M.L. Lladas

Forty-two years in the making, this is the singular publication that contains all of the important events of Jesus’ time here on earth and places you alongside Him as one of His disciples as He explains everything that He did.

Religious Frauds and Pretenders

COPYRIGHT WARNING

There are many people, who over the course of their life, meet an individual who has claimed to be a Christian—who has exhibited behavior that is contrary to their particular belief, and caused other people to discount God altogether.

An enduring fact of life is that one of the leading causes of atheism is Christianity. Not that Jesus is the point of stumbling, but rather those who claim to follow him. Many people attribute the behavior of a person to the character of the God they claim to believe in. Forgetting that the Christian Gospel clearly declares that Jesus came into the world to save “sinners,” not the righteous. It is the very worst of the world that Jesus is most appealing to. The Christian life in following Jesus is frequently imperfect and lacking the basic qualities of love, patience, humility, and forgiveness. Those who are trying to follow Jesus will never be perfect in this life, although they should endeavor, constantly, to be more like Jesus in all their behavior.

It should also be understood that many people who take the name of “Christian,” are frauds. For reasons of personal financial gain or to achieve a position of authority or power, many individuals will label themselves a follower of Christ, without this fact being true.

Israel: What More Could God Do?

COPYRIGHT WARNING

The Lord saw Israel as His vineyard. He planted her, tended her, nourished and protected her. When the time came for Him to enjoy the fruit of His vineyard, He found only wild grapes. It was the task of Israel to make the Messiah known to the world when He arrived. Instead they rejected Him and put Him to death. Therefore, God gave this task to the Gentiles—through the church, who was birthed as a result of the Messiah’s death and resurrection.

We know from Isaiah 5:1-7, God is speaking of the Messiah, as a result of Jesus teaching concerning the 11th Parable, called: The Parable of the workers in the vineyard. Jesus uses almost identical language in describing Israel as God’s vineyard in Matthew 21:33-43. Continue reading “Israel: What More Could God Do?”

The Foolishness of the Cross

 COPYRIGHT WARNING

The Cross of Jesus is not what you might expect

As a result of my writing in presenting Jesus Christ as the Messiah and only Savior of the world, I have had the opportunity to converse with many who are atheists. On occasion, I have been informed that most atheists are “highly educated.” The inference is made that since a person has attained a high degree of education, they are better able to discern whether or not God actually exists. The assumption by those who claim that there is “no evidence for God,” is that if God did in fact exist, intelligent men could discover Him by their intellect.

This is an interesting perspective of the atheist. Although they claim to be the possessors of wisdom, they seem to have missed an important point: If God exists, then He would be the source of all wisdom and knowledge. His purposes and methods for revealing Himself, would not necessarily be the ways in which man would expect. He just might determined to present Himself veiled in a method that only the humble could discern. Continue reading “The Foolishness of the Cross”

“10 Reasons the Crucifixion Story Makes No Sense,” Answered

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Atheist, Bob Seidensticker of “Patheos,” states: “The crucifixion story doesn’t strike me as that big a deal.” He then lists 10 reasons why he views this event is insignificant and lacking credibility.

The preeminent evidence that is absent from all of Bob’s observations regarding Jesus Crucifixion, are facts which would impeach this event. The death of Jesus Christ by Crucifixion is one of the most fully substantiated events in the history of the world. It is clear that Bob has no real knowledge of this event and is simply making comments that originate as opinions, rather than from credible research.

The Parables of Jesus: Heavenly Truth, Taught by Earthly Illustrations

COPYRIGHT WARNING

When a human being thinks, he does so by the use of pictures, not words. Words communicate truth, but the mind conveys these truths to the heart by images of the objects that are perceived. When truths are communicated by common objects that are familiar to us, we see a picture of this object in our mind. It is then that we can ponder these representations and understand how they relate to the story that is being told. The Bible designates Jesus as the Creator of all that exists (Colossians 1:17). Therefore, His teaching originates from the source of all knowledge and contains the wisdom of eternity. Continue reading “The Parables of Jesus: Heavenly Truth, Taught by Earthly Illustrations”

The Messiah Will Teach by Parables: Jesus Taught by Parables

COPYRIGHT WARNING

Psalms 78:2 “I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old…

New Testament Fulfillment:

Matthew 13:34-35 All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: “I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.

It is interesting that the Old Testament describes the actual teaching style of the Messiah. He will speak plainly to those who are earnestly seeking Him; but to those who do not have a sincere heart after God, He will teach by parables. This is the prophecy of Psalms 78:12.

The Messiah will teach by the use of Parables—Jesus taught by Parables; therefore, He is the Messiah.
