Five Reasons why the Bible is the Most Important Book on Earth! Reason Five
It connects you to history’s most
You may have heard of the “God-Man,” Jesus of
Nazareth, also called the “Christ” (i.e.”Anointed One”). You may even think
you know him. But if you have not read the account offered firsthand throughout
this book, you will, in effect, know nothing definite about him. The entire Old
Testament points to his coming, and the entire New Testament testifies to his
teachings and actions.
- His name has been used to bless people and it has been used as a curse word
by those who despise him. People have been healed and set free in his name. One
thing is for sure: when you meet Jesus in the pages of this book and understand
who he claims to be it is impossible for you to remain indifferent to him.

- Each year, over a billion people celebrate his birth, his death and his
bodily resurrection from the dead.
- Jesus is the only religious leader ever to make the claim that he has risen
from the dead. All others are dead and buried. Abraham is dead. Moses is dead.
Mohammed has died and remains dead, Buddha is dead, Gandhi is dead. Only Jesus
claims to be alive. Even Muslims revere Jesus as a holy man and a great prophet.
