What can we learn from this excursion “In the Footsteps of Jesus?” First, faith in the Gospel records of Jesus are completely warranted. They are the best historical records known from antiquity. As the physician and author of the third Gospel says, “…having investigated everything carefully from the beginning…so that you might know the exact truth about the things you have been taught” (Luke 1:2-4).
Second, your faith is not in the history but in the person of Jesus who is documented in these records. As the apostle John says, “Many other things therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:30-31).
Such is my prayer that all who read this study will discover new spiritual life “In the Footsteps of Jesus.”
