5-7-2015 Who Has Seen Jesus?

Jesus is revealed in the Bible – not on an iron, foil on a bottle of cider, a drainpipe, a tortilla, the side of a freezer, a potted asparagus fern, or a shroud of Turin! But, there is NO physical description of Jesus Christ anywhere in Scripture! Every depiction of Jesus, whether as a baby or on a cross, is totally without Scriptural fact, and entirely made-up by someone’s imagination! To Thomas, who had trouble believing that Jesus was raised from the dead, Jesus said: “Jesus said to him, ‘Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’” (John 20:29 NKJV). We are to be looking in the Scriptures for Jesus Christ, not imagining Him in any other place!
