Seattle Times letters to the editor

December 26, 2013 at 7:00 PM

There are indeed eyewitness accounts of the events of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection

Responding to the article stating that there is “No reference to Jesus’ earthly appearance in the Bible” [“Does it matter what race Jesus was?” News, Dec. 25], the author might be interested in four books of the Bible dedicated to that subject: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Luke prefaces his letter, “Since many have undertaken to set down an orderly account of the events that have been fulfilled among us, just as they were handed on to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word, I too decided, after investigating everything carefully from the very first, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the truth concerning the things about which you have been instructed.”

He then begins with the birth of Jesus and reports from his eyewitness accounts of the events of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. It’s a fascinating account of Jesus’ earthly life from a more thorough investigative writer than The Seattle Times article.
