What’s in a name?

I was thinking just this morning how even though he lived and died over 2000 years ago, Jesus continues to be the most disturbing man in history. 

His existence placed a permanent dividing mark on time and history for all mankind, and lifted the veil on our future.

Even his name or image continues to evoke strong feelings of either,
Revulsion or attraction…
Hatred or love…
Fear or trust…
Misery or comfort…
Hostility or peace…
Malice or kindness…

What causes the difference? The simple act of either denying or accepting whom He proved himself to be.

There has been no other born like him, nor will there ever be again.

“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.”  Jesus Christ
