Apparently, Jesus is a popular subject today. But is the Jesus we see on television, at the movies, and over the Internet the real Jesus? If we are not careful, those messages, like a song subconsciously absorbed in an elevator, will become part of our lives, part of our thinking, part of our beliefs. If what the New Testament says about Jesus is true, these cultural images can be deadly. That means nothing could be more important than separating fact from fiction as we encounter these alternative, ridiculing, or demeaning portrayals of the God who came to redeem the human race.
