Please not that this sermon will be preached on VBS Sunday with all the kids in the service. Expect it to vastly different from a normal Sunday teaching.
Why did men who knew Jesus think it was important to write down certain events from his life? Why did thousands of people after them, over hundreds of years, painstakingly make thousands of copies of those writings? Why are those writings the most widely printed (and read) books in existence? In John 20:30-31 we find an answer to these questions.
