Wall Street investors often hunt for the next start-up company that might explode in growth and yield huge profits. Imagine the church of Jesus Christ as an IPO two thousand years ago. Then, only a handful of people had any foresight that it would achieve the worldwide impact envisioned by its Founder.
Most of the “investors” were afraid, uneducated, and powerless against the mighty Roman Empire. The tangled religious politics in Jerusalem left them dismayed. But the church has a two-thousand-year growth history greater than the most coveted stocks listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average or S&P 500, and it still yields eternal profits.
What happened following the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is truly an amazing story about a revolutionary Person and time.
