Everyone seems to have an opinion of who they think Jesus is. This Easter we look at the most prominent theories about Jesus to see if He was a liar, a lunatic, a legend, or is in fact, Lord. We'll let the evidence speak for itself. The Scripture passage for this sermon by Pastor Steven Lucas was taken from Matthew 13:53-58.
