Jesus: a towering figure in the story of western civilization. A genius, a fiercely intelligent and creative individual, an exceptional strategist and born leader; a man possessing the rarest of spiritual gifts, a remarkable teacher and gifted healer, but here revealed, not as a divine or unreachable being, but as a 'man'.
A man who lived through the occupation of his homeland, and faced mounting persecution and astonishing self-doubt to lead his people in a new way. His determination to unshackle religious doctrine and tear down the established hierarchy deemed him radical by Rome and eventually led to his downfall.
But his story did not end with crucifixion, for despite the false mark of history, he did not die on the cross. Those that called him ‘Saviour’ rallied, and saved him.
This is his true story.
In this story, Jesus emerges as a figure astonishingly more remarkable ‘because’ of his humanity.
