Our primary knowledge of Jesus comes from the Bible. So how is it that so many people say they follow Jesus, but that they don’t trust the Bible? How can a person who doesn’t trust the Bible know that he actually follows Jesus? Jesus — the real Jesus — is revealed in the Bible. Can we know the real Jesus? Does the Bible provide a faithful record of God’s revelation to humanity? Can we be sure? Yes!
