Jesus was crucified. That statement is a historical fact. Yet when you fast forward through 2,000 years of human history to today, you find a movement built not on the teachings of his enemies but on His own teachings.
Caesar is dead, the empire he forged has fallen, and the priesthood that orchestrated it all has become a relic of a bygone faith, but the Church exists on every continent and is comprised of billions of people. Jesus launched something that has outlived the empires, kingdoms, and ideologies that sought to destroy it.
The reason? The Church is a movement with unstoppable power because Jesus is alive.
