“I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.” That is the one we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would be either a lunatic -- on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg -- or else he would be the devil of hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse.”
C. S. Lewis

Pontius Pilate, circa 33 AD
Theories about the missing body:
Disciples stole it...
Authorities stole it...
the high priest asked him, "are you the|
Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?”
“I am,” said Jesus.
1. He was wrong and knew it
2. He was wrong and didn't know it
3. He was right
The Ultimate Question:
Jesus asked, “Who do you say I am?”
