How do teenagers around the world view Jesus? That was one of the questions at the center of a new study conducted in coordination with a number of well-known Christian organizations.
The survey, which takes into account teenage perspectives in 26 different countries, found most teens between the ages of 13 and 17 have a positive view of Christ, seeing Him as generous, wise, peaceful, and trustworthy, among other descriptors.
“Data show it’s rare that teens think poorly of Jesus, reads a report from the Barna Group. “Most teenagers around the world have a positive perception of Him. About half of all teens, across faith groups, describe Jesus as ‘loving’ (49%) and believe He offers hope to (46%) and cares about people (43%).”
