Today is Christmas. I have a Christmas challenge for you. Whoever you are, I urge you to read a succinct summary of the central role Jesus is supposed to play in God’s plan for the salvation of humanity.
Please, don’t click away from this post without reading to the end. Surely you can spare a few minutes for this. It is, after all, Christmas Day.
This challenge doesn’t assume that you’re a Christian, that you believe in Jesus, or that you have any religion whatsoever. But any reasonable evaluation of Christianity presupposes a knowledge of the basic outline of what a true disciple of Jesus believes to be the only hope for this world.

I’ll be happy to receive any comments or questions you have after reading this. Unless you wish to have them published on this post, your comments will be kept in the strictest confidence.
Note: I have taken this challenge myself today and found it truly rewarding. It’s attributed to Mark Dever, and appears as an explanatory essay in the study version of the English Standard Bible, published by Crossway Books.
