An unsung patriarch who isn’t mentioned in the major historical references of his time period.
After his death, three centuries pass before he is mentioned.
A King who’s life is filled with legends and myths.
Almost everybody believes Arthur existed despite the scant evidence confirming him.
Because believing in King Arthur is risk-free.
It’s appropriate to talk about another King today.
This king has a much harder time convincing people He lived.
Despite mountains of historical, scientific, and circumstantial evidence,
Jesus doesn’t even get credit for ever being alive.
Because Jesus is different from Arthur.
Jesus won’t allow neutrality.
The story of Jesus changes everything.
Jesus conquered death.
Jesus destroyed sin.
Jesus built a bridge to God.
Jesus explained the source of life itself.
Arthur supposedly pulled a magic sword from a stone.
Much simpler to believe.
No consequences for disbelief.
Centuries later, there are no ‘Arthurians’ gathering to worship.
But there are billions of Christians thanking God for resurrecting Jesus.
Because Jesus, like Arthur, really did live.
Like Arthur, He really did die.
Unlike Arthur, He lived again.
This is confirmed by multiple sources from the actual time of Jesus.
Confirmed by multiple non-Christian sources.
Confirmed by millions of changed lives.
