The Witness of the Apostles

Read the Bible in a year by reading First John 1 today.
If someone witnesses an automobile accident, we accept his testimony, although he only saw and heard what happened and did not know the victims before or even get involved in the rescue effort. Yet, the witness of the apostles about Jesus Christ involved much more. John wrote, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life” (1John 1:1).
The apostles spent three and a half years with Jesus Christ. They saw everything He did; heard everything He said, examined all of the things concerning Him; and touched Him with their hands.
They knew Him. They knew He was raised from the dead. They knew He was a man, but that He was from God also, for He was truly God in the flesh.
There is no reason to deny the witness of the apostles, but every reason to accept it. If you accept it, you can become a child of God.
