The New Testament Gamble

I am a youth pastor. The gospel is the single truth I want my students to comprehend beyond any other before they graduate. When I was in seminary, one of my profs had us read a little book called TrueFaced, by John Lynch and Bill Thrall. I have found few other explanations of the gospel more helpful and compelling outside of the Bible. The book has since  been updated, and now goes by the title, The Cure. One particular passage in the book made me stop, put the book down, and consider my relationship with Jesus for a solid hour. It has changed my approach to the Christian life. The passage can be experienced in the video embedded below.
