Who is Jesus?

We cannot answer this question without first asking who God is. And according to scripture, God is the being who created all things and on whom all things depend (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28). Jesus is the Son of God who came into the world to redeem it.

Here are some things we learn from the Bible about him:

1. He existed before all things (John 1:1, 14; Colossians 1:17)

2. He was born of the Virgin Mary (Matthew 1:18-25; Isaiah 7:14)

3. He is fully human (He experienced pain John 11:35, Matthew 16:21; he was hungry Matthew 21:18, and was also thirsty, John 19:28).

4. He is also fully God (Mark 4:35-41; John 1:1; Philippians 2:6-7).

5. He is tender and compassionate towards all his creation (Mathew 15:32; Luke 7:13).

6. He died for our sins and was raised from the dead so we can be justified (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:14; Galatians 1:4).

7. Everyone who believes in him is saved and will not be condemned (Mark 16:16; Romans 10:9,10).

8. He is the Head of God’s people, the church (Ephesians 1:22; Colossians 1:18).

9. He ascended into heaven and currently oversees the good of his people (Luke 24: 50-51; Acts 2:33; Acts 5:31).

10. He will return to Judge the earth and finally establish God’s kingdom (Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:28)

Now we know something about him. But there’s more—We can get to know him. He invites us to come to him, trust in him, and walk with him (Matthew 11:28-30).

And you can start right where you are.
