Who Is Jesus Christ?

Throughout history many people have attempted to answer this question. Some have done so accurately, but many nave not. Our best source for answering this question is-once again-God's own Word, the Bible presents us with some inescapable truths about Jesus that demands a response. Anyone who seriously studies Scripture to learn more about Jesus must answer two probing questions:

  • "What do you think of Jesus Christ?
  • "Who is He?"

The writer CS Lewis made this observation: "You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon: or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord & God. But let us not come with any patronising nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that to us. He did not intend to" (Mere Christianity, rev. ed. [New York: Macmillan, 1952], 41).

Jesus is just not a good man. He was - and is - the God-man. Let's examine what the Bible has to say about Jesus Christ.

1. Jesus is Human

Jesus became our supreme example as God in human form (see Philippians 2:5-11.

2. Jesus is God Almighty

Even though Jesus became human, he still remained God (see Colossians 1:15-20)

3. Jesus had a specific mission to accomplish

Jesus came to save humankind from sin. (see Luke 4:16-21)

4. Jesus Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

Jesus endured trememdous pain so that we could enjoy eternity with him. (see 1 Peter 2:24)

5. Jesus Has Great Power to Transform People

Jesus can change the most unlikely person into one of the most powerful witnesses on His behalf. (see Acts 4:1-13

6. Jesus Has An Eternal Dominion

Jesus' Kingdom extends beyond the boundries of space and time. (see Revelation 1:4-8)

We believe that throughout the Old and New Testaments, Jesus (The Word), has been referred to by many names and that these names, as given by God, are functional in nature. He is referred to as:

  • Immanuel – Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23
  • Wonderful – Isa. 9:6
  • Everlasting Father, Mighty God – Isa. 9:6
  • Counselor – Isa. 9:6
  • Prince of Peace (King of Salem) – Isa. 9:6
  • Son of Man – Daniel 7:13; Matt. 9:6; 26:64
  • Holy One (particularly in reference to His earthly body) – Ps. 16:10; Mk. 1:24; Acts 3:14
  • LORD or Lords – I Tim. 6:15
  • Sovereign – I Tim. 6:15
  • The Word – I John 5:7; John 1:1,2; Rev.19:13
  • Jesus – Matt. 1:21
  • Christ – Matt. 16:16; 26:63; Jn. 11:27; 20:31
  • Messiah – Daniel 9:25, 26; Jn. 1:41
  • …and many, many more!
