Jesus

    The section "The problem between God and man"          "Behold the Lamb of God..."              has already shown how Jesus Christ is the

    answer to the problem between God and man. In                                                        John 1:29     fact, the whole of Christianity hinges upon

    faith in Jesus - who He is and what He did. One                                                                                   thing is sure, Jesus has made a greater

    impact upon this world than any other individual.                                                                              Quite simply, we divide our history into two

    parts - BC and AD, history before Jesus came and                                                                               history after Jesus. How could a man, born

    to a humble carpenter in a small town, in an                                                                                       unimportant country on the edges of the

    Roman Empire possibly have such an impact on                                                                                the whole world?

 

    The Bible has much to say about Jesus - both in                                                                                 the Old and New Testaments. Some of

    what it says is laid out below. One thing that we                                                                                cannot afford to do is ignore the person of

    Jesus. We know that, historically, He really did                                                                                    exist and from the legal records of the time

    that He really was crucified. Common criminal,                                                                                  deluded do-gooder - or the Son of God? Is

    He the cornerstone of our faith, or a stumbling                                                                                  block to believing?

                                         The most important  decision we will ever make in this life is deciding who we think Jesus is really.

Bible prophecies and teachings concerning Jesus
    Having accepted that the Bible is the revealed Word of God to man, it then becomes important to

  find out what The Bible (in other words, what God) says about its central character - Jesus Christ.

  We cannot accept the Bible as true without accepting Jesus as the Son of God and the Saviour of mankind.

  Similarly, we cannot accept Jesus as Son of God and Saviour without accepting the Bible as the revealed Word of

  God. At one time (Matthew 16:15) Jesus asked the Apostle Peter, and today asks each one of us, "Who do YOU say I

  am?"
