The Biblical Jesus

I cannot take credit for this piece of writing. However, I wish I could, for it expresses a conviction in which I deeply believe. It is a theme in which many of us believe. It came through a sermon by Pastor Rick Webb, July Evangelist at Southwest Michigan camp Meeting (a camp that shows increase at a time when some camps are slumping).
