The Gospels for the 21st Century 

What was it about Jesus Christ that attracted great crowds to listen to Him? Was it the miracles, the fascinating parables in everyday language, or the force of his moral teaching? Was it the perceived possibility of the overthrow of Roman rule, or His searing critique of religious corruption? Was it all, some or none of these reasons? 

And why, ultimately, did the religious leadership of the day determine to end the work of the man from Galilee? 

With this first in a series of articles, we begin a fascinating journey through the life and times of Jesus Christ—a journey that will at times surprise you and probably change your perceptions of original Christianity. 

For centuries many scholars and teachers have misunderstood and led others to misunderstand the practice of early Christians. How did the earliest followers of Jesus practice the faith He delivered? How should Christians today follow their leader?
