Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

Why It's Important to Know!

It is important to know who Jesus is because we live in an age of religious pluralism and moral relativism. The popular spiritual philosophy, especially after the events of September 11th, is that all religious belief systems, as long as heart-felt, are equal. Pick one and follow it sincerely, and you'll get to Heaven. That's what the world believes, but Jesus teaches otherwise. Therefore, we need to examine who Jesus is by looking at some of the questions people frequently ask about Him. The answers are found in the Bible, the historical evidence people have trusted for over 2000 years.

Here are three important characteristics of Jesus:

He Was 100% Man
According to John 1:14, Jesus became flesh and made His dwelling among us.

Why is His humanity so important?
- In Hebrews 4:15, Jesus was tempted in every way, just as we are. As such, Jesus can sympathize with our weakness as humans.

What can we learn from the way Jesus handled temptation?
- According to 1 John 3:5, Jesus came to earth in human form so that He could die a physical death and take away our sins.

How would we all be affected, if we had no potential for escape from our sins?
- Jesus is the key to membership in God's family. When He stooped to our level by becoming a man, He made it possible for us to relate to Him and for God to relate to us through Him.

He Was 100% God
Who is Jesus, and how was it possible that Christ's human body held the whole deity and glory of God?
- According to John 1:1-3, Jesus existed from the beginning. From the beginning, Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God. Here, the Bible establishes the inseparable nature of Jesus and the God of the Universe.

The following verses provide further evidence that Jesus is 100% God:

(Highlights of Christ's Time on Earth: Bible verses)

- Miracles: Luke 7:22
- Eyewitnesses to His perfect life: Matthew 16:13-17
- Fulfillment of Prophecy: Matthew 13:14, Luke 24:44
- Jesus' own identification/claim: John 10:30-38, Matthew 16:13- 17, Mark 14:61-64
- Claims of Christ's followers: Hebrews 1:8, Colossians 1:16, John 12:40 (quoting Isaiah 6:1-10)
- Resurrection: Luke 24:39, Mark 8:31, Acts 17:32 Jesus is the key to membership in God's family. When He established His deity by rising from the grave, He made it possible for us to have forgiveness from sin and a renewed relationship with God. 



He is the Way to Heaven
Who is Jesus, and why is He the only path to salvation?

- In John 14:6, Jesus declares: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Why is it important to know that NO other religious leaders throughout history have ever made these claims?
- According to Ephesians 2:8-9, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast."

How does this contrast with other world religions, which are based on "works" versus faith in Jesus and the resurrection?
- If we can't build a relationship with God by doing good deeds or repeating rituals, what must we do? Acts 4:12 is clear, "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved."

Now you know who he is, you might be wondering then “How can I be saved?”. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” It also says in Romans 10:13, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

You can call the name of the Lord and be saved through a strong relationship with Christ. The first step is the Prayer of Salvation, which is also called The Sinner’s prayer. We are all sinners and we need to confess it. When we pray it, we acknowledge that Christ is our Lord and Saviour and it is only through Him that we can be cleansed and saved.
