I'd like to invite you to participate in a new series called "3 Simple Questions About Jesus." Here's the premise:
You've just met a young American adult who is utterly irreligious. They were raised by agnostic parents, their family never attended any kind of religious gathering, and - although they understand what "religion" is and have been exposed to different religious practitioners - they don't really know anything about Jesus Christ or Christianity. But they're curious, so they ask you three simple questions:
1. Who is Jesus Christ?
2. What has he done?
3. Why does it matter?
I would love to get your simple, sincere, and conversational response in 300 words or less. You can respond with historical facts, theological musings, parables, or tell a story - whatever best represents your honest response.
