A Reflection on the Life and Sacrifice of Jesus - by Ronald Reagan

    Publisher's note: Diane just got this to us, and, understandably, this not a timely post; however, the resurrection of Christ is always topical.

    "I still can't help wondering how we can explain away what to me is the greatest miracle of all and which is recorded in history. No one denies there was such a man, that he lived and that he was put to death by crucifixion. Where ... is the miracle I spoke of? Well consider this and let your imagination translate the story into our own time -- possibly to your own home town. A young man whose father is a carpenter grows up working in his father's shop. One day he puts down his tools and walks out of his father's shop. He starts preaching on street corners and in the nearby countryside, walking from place to place, preaching all the while, even though he is not an ordained minister. He never gets farther than an area perhaps 100 miles wide at the most. He does this for three years. Then he is arrested, tried and convicted. There is no court of appeal, so he is executed at age 33 along with two common thieves. Those in charge of his execution roll dice to see who gets his clothing -- the only possessions he has. His family cannot afford a burial place for him so he is interred in a borrowed tomb. End of story? No, this uneducated, property-less young man has, for 2,000 years, had a greater effect on the world than all the rulers, kings, emperors; all the conquerors, generals and admirals, all the scholars, scientists and philosophers who have ever lived -- all of them put together. How do we explain that -- unless He really was what He said He was?"                   ----- Ronald Reagan

Thank you Diane, I don't remember if I have ever seen this quote from President Reagan before. It is clear, distinct and to the point from the Great Communicator. While the liberals will debate over who actually wrote this, I will concentrate on it's content. His ability to clearly present an idea is more important than the parsing of the words.
