Who is Jesus?
The Gospel of John is written by one of Jesus’s closest disciples. He writes, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:1-3). Later, he states, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” This Word is Jesus. Jesus is not simply a man who lived 2000 years ago. He is also the eternal God who made everything in the universe.
After Jesus was raised from the dead, and before He returned to heaven, He said, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth…” (Matthew 28:18). Speaking of Jesus, the Apostle Paul writes, “…He [Jesus] who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords” (1 Timothy 6:15). It doesn’t matter who the president or ruler is, Jesus is King over all the earth.
God promises that every human being will be judged and held accountable for their thoughts, actions, and words. “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom” (2 Timothy 4:1). The day of judgment is coming, and we are told the Judge will be Jesus.
Every human being has disobeyed God and deserves punishment. Jesus came to take our place by having our disobedience (sin) accounted to Him and being punished. By God’s grace, through faith in who Jesus is and what He did, Jesus’s obedience is accounted to us. In this way, Jesus is our Savior. He has saved us from the just punishment our sins deserve, and He is the only means through which we can be saved. Acts 4:12, “Nor is there salvation in any other [name], for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
