TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO
Jeff: CS Lewis came up with something Christians call the Trilemma.
Dave: It says, “Either Jesus was Lord, a Liar, or a Lunatic.”
Jeff: Right – and Jesus wasn’t crazy – in fact, his teachings are some of the clearest and most helpful words ever shared.
Dave: He sure doesn’t seem to be a liar, there’s no evidence that he was trying to deceive people
Jeff: So, Christians say, he must be LORD – he’s God just like he claimed.
Dave: That’s great!!
Jeff: Well, there’s another option.
Dave: Hit me.
Jeff: Maybe Jesus was a myth… maybe he didn’t actually exist! We’ll tackle that in the next Truth Shot.
Dave: Okay, but until then.. the main point of the Trilemma is to help us remember: Jesus wasn’t just a good teacher.
Jeff: Exactly. He was a lot of things, but we can’t say Jesus was a good guy, and leave it at that – if he was real, and he claimed to be God, and he wasn’t crazy or lying…
Dave: Perhaps he really was the son of God.
