Who Is Jesus?
The understanding of Jesus is so vital. Most importantly, because it relates to the decision we make to be in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
But who is He? What sort of man is this?
“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation," (Colossians 1:15). I can imagine communities everywhere when Jesus showed up talking, speculating, arguing, speaking in parables… Did you hear…, It is said of him that… Did you know…?, especially the religious people of the day, the teachers of the law. Wherever He was, if he spoke or did anything, He was the talk of the town.
When Jesus calms the storm in Matthew 8:27, the disciples said “Who is this man? Even the winds and waves obey him!"
Jesus was incomparable. We always try to compare public figures with similar people in history because we like to categorize in order to have a reference point. But Jesus can't be compared to anyone else that ever lived.
When the questions above are personalized, it becomes the most important question that you and I will ever be asked or have to answer. Who is Jesus? Or more importantly who is Jesus to YOU? Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me," (John 14:6).
