Dave: What if there were other messiahs?
Jeff: What if we found someone who did many things just like Jesus, lived around the same time, and even claimed to have risen from the dead?
Dave: We’ve refuted some of these on previous shows –
Jeff: Right, guys like Appolonius, Sabbatai, Mithras, and more.
Dave: But, just think of the principle behind it. What if those stories were true?
Jeff: What would that take away from Jesus?
Dave: Jesus still fulfilled all the Jewish prophecy.
Jeff: Nobody else did.
Dave: Jesus still rose from the dead, and was recorded as a historical figure.
Jeff: He’s not a myth – he actual did these things, and was the legitimate Jewish messiah who rose from the dead. So, even if other people did some miracles – it takes nothing away from our worshipping Jesus.
Dave: We like to play the “what if it’s true game.” And usually we find out that Jesus doesn’t lose anything.
Jeff: So, the next time you hear one of these rumors, play the “what if it’s true” game – see if it takes anything from Jesus – and then, go ahead and look up the facts.
