What Has You Perplexed?

Timothy Swigart

While reading in the Book of Luke this week, I came upon a heading for Luke 9:7-9. The heading read: "Herod is Perplexed by Jesus." Here's the biblical text that follows: "Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the dead, by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the prophets of old had risen. Herod said, 'John I beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?' And he sought to see him."

Jesus is the most intriguing person to ever have walked the earth. There's literally no one in the world like Him. So, as you can imagine, He is one of the most often discussed religious figures in the world. With so many discussions, it becomes difficult to separate fact from fiction. So, I'm hoping to open this blog to address the questions you might have about Jesus. What has you perplexed? Please join in the discussion by commenting to this blog post. Together we'll seek the real Jesus as revealed in Scripture.
