Who is Jesus?
The Jews believe Jesus was a rabbi but not their promised Messiah. Muslims teach that He was a prophet sent by God and taken up to heaven, but also that He never died on a cross and was not God’s Son. Throughout history, different groups have attempted to use Jesus as their mascot for causes that range from heroic to horrific. Is it even possible to cut through all the confusion and find the truth about who Jesus really is?
Let’s start with what Jesus said about Himself. Four books found in the Bible — Matthew, Mark, Luke and John — are historical accounts of Jesus’ words and teachings from people who were actually there — eyewitnesses. They heard him speak, observed how He treated people, and even witnessed the miracles He performed. The real Jesus was right before their eyes, and they testified that there was no one else like Him.
Jesus said, I came so they can have real and eternal life. More and better life than they ever dreamed of.
I AM the Resurrection and the Life.
I AM the Good Shepherd.
I AM the light of the world.
I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Jesus is more than a man who made bold statements 2,000 years ago. His life, His words and His purpose brought hope and change to those who knew Him then, and they bring hope to those who know Him now.
When He said, “Come, follow me,” He was speaking to you.
