The Christian claim is that the things the Bible teaches about Jesus are true and certain. We take this position because 1) Christianity is a biblical faith. Luke refers to the promises of the Old Testament that were fulfilled in Jesus. He sets out to show us how Jesus fulfills the promises of God. 2) Christianity is a historical faith. The things we claim were not done in secret, and Luke gives us specific historical dates and figures as he recounts Jesus' life. Finally, 3) Christianity is a varifiable faith. Though many have tried to write a narrative of Jesus, only four were accepted as Scripture through a thoroughly vetted process. The church worked prayerfully and faithfuly to preserve God's Word. Luke provided a "carefuly investigated ...orderly sequence". Christianity is a faith that is biblically, historically, and verifiably true and therefore trustworthy.
