Who do you say He is?

        "I am trying here to prevent anyone 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 thing 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 either be a lunatic -- on the 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.  You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God.  But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher.  He has not left that open to us.  He did not intend to." --British author C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

I say He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and He is indeed risen!  Happy Easter!

If you haven't quite decided who He is, read this thought-provoking post by Joseph Mattera:  Ten Reasons Why I Believe In The Ressurection of Christ
