Christianity Today Bible Study: The Uniqueness of Jesus

Christianity Today Bible studies are available for download at This one, “The Uniquenness of Jesus,” is based on an article by John Franke.

Christianity Today has graciously allowed me to post the studies I have written to this site, usually one or two a month. If you would like to use them for anything other than your own spiritual growth, I ask you to download them at the CT Bible study site mentioned above.

In the 1977 movie Oh, God!, Jerry Landers, the assistant manager of a grocery store, asks God (played by George Burns) whether Jesus is his son. God/Burns says, “Yes”—then adds that Muhammad, Buddha, and others are also his children. In other words, Jesus is neither more nor less special than anyone else. While this approach wins plaudits in our pluralistic times, it runs counter to the witness of Scripture and the words of Jesus, who said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). So are we going to believe a comedian or Jesus? And if we are going to believe Jesus, what difference does his uniqueness make for our faith?

Here is a link to the study for your personal, individual use. Your feedback is always welcome.
