Jesus

God, healer, miracle worker, preacher, prophet, crucified, resurrected... is it possible that this man was all these things? Is Jesus alive today? Can he really change people's lives?

Who is Jesus?

The questions we like to ask about God are endless: “Is God real?” “Is what we know about Him really true?” and “What does He have to do with my life?” list just a few.

The Bible may not answer every question about God – and could even lead us to ask more – but one of the areas the Bible is quite definite is the answer to the question: who is Jesus?

Jesus commends the apostle Peter’s confession of Him as “the Messiah, the Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16), because Jesus knew that who He is – and could be to us – has the power to change our lives. Jesus is so unique because two worlds collide in him: heaven and earth, the divine and the human.

C.S. Lewis, a well-known Christian author, wrote of Jesus, “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 and God, but let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”

Yes, Jesus’ name is the name above all names, and His star-breathing, storm-calming, miracle-working power is second to none. Yet, He is also the human Jesus, the personal friend who knows what we are going through and cares about us. That’s why the Bible also calls Him “Immanuel”, God with us.

The Bible Project: Who is Jesus?

In this video on the Messiah, The Bible Project explores the mysterious promise on page three of the Bible, that a promised deliverer would one day come to confront evil and rescue humanity. They trace this theme through the family of Abraham, the messianic lineage of David, and ultimately to Jesus who defeated evil by letting it defeat him.

Is Jesus relevant?

For everyone and anyone.

The Bible tells us that we are all separated from God. But God loves us very much and wants us all to have a better and eternal life. God made a way for us by sending His Son. He lives a life here on earth as an example for all of us to follow. His name is Jesus.

To show us all that it was possible to receive eternal life, Jesus had to die and come alive again, which He did. He was executed on a cross and in His death Jesus removed all the separation between man and God. When he came alive again He was the first person in human history to be seen with eternal life, He could never die again!

Jesus is now changing lives of millions of people all over the world. These people are from different backgrounds, cultures, and ages and the amazing joy is that Jesus candy the same for you as He has done for so many.

Knowing Jesus

Knowing Jesus is amazing and simple!

That’s how He is alive today. And He says anyone who is willing to accept Him as the leader of their life will receive eternal life just like Him. It’s very simple, but that’s how God wants it to be because He wants all of us to have a life that is exciting and eternal.

Dave's story

If you’d like to have Jesus in your life, there’s a simple prayer that you can pray right now...

Dear Lord Jesus,

I thank you that You love me with all of your heart; so much so that You came to die for me so that I could have a relationship with you forever. I thank you that You have made a way for me to come back to you and to enter into a life that is full of excitement, power and purpose.

I’m sorry for the bad things I have done in my life and I want you to take them all away for me. I believe that you have the power to set me free from it all. I give it all to you now and ask you for forgiveness.

Please, Lord Jesus, be the leader in my life. I want to follow you now and I want to be led by your Holy Spirit and I want to discover the plans and purpose that You have for my life.

Amen.
