Who is this JESUS?  Most importantly, who do you think he is? Is he a man, a Jew, a teacher, may be a philosopher or is He GOD? Whatever people say that he is or was while on earth, we know that He was and is much more than that individual or group perceptions. So what does the Bible say about who JESUS is? The Bible states that JESUS as an individual was his own person with a divine purpose. He wasn’t just someone spiritual during His time on earth; He was both God’s Son and God Himself. God became flesh and dwelt on earth,1 Timothy 3:16. It’s simple, JESUS was fully man but He was also fully God -Colossians 2:9.

Jesus performed miracles such as raising people from the dead and he forgave sins, both of which only GOD can do. HE did all of this with the power and might of the Holy Spirit. For some of us it is difficult to comprehend the truth of such facts but then again we understand that GOD is almighty.

HE also said that he had the authority to judge the nations in Matthew 25:31-46. Further, Jesus says He has the power to answer prayers (John 14:13-14), and that He will be with His followers always (Matthew 28:20). The New Testament equates Jesus to the creator of the universe (John 1:3), and in John 16:15, He says, “All that belongs to the Father is mine.”

Saying and claiming is one thing but where’s the evidence? Anybody could say that they were GOD but what would make it to be true? Where’s the evidence that He is God? JESUS didn’t just talk, he walked the talk. Not just lip service but a whole lot of action. He left a lot of evidence while he was functioning on earth.

It was prophesied about Him, prophets of the old, had written it down long before the arrival of JESUS, about who HE is and what he would accomplish. His disciples and other onlookers documented evidences of all those prophesies taking place and of the miracles and wonders that JESUS did while he was on earth.

The most evident difference between JESUS and the rest of the world is SIN. Man is incapable of not sinning, we are prone to sin.  All men sin but JESUS, he lived a sinless life. GOD’s WORD states in the book of Hebrews 4:15, for we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.

JESUS is divine. It was His resurrection from the dead after His death on the cross that proved it. No one else has ever risen from the dead on his own.

The good news is that Jesus told us He is God in many different ways! He has made it clear that He and God the Father are one in the book of  John 10:30 and says in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” Who else could claim these things except God? Someone telling us that they themselves are God, would make us laugh and probably mock them. Similarly JESUS telling them directly would have got the same reaction.  

JESUS was not born of the flesh, he was born by the Spirit of GOD through a virgin Mary. Luke was a medical doctor, he had a pretty clear understanding of how these things worked and while he did account and record all of these, he accepted that JESUS was not born out of sexual activity. GOD didn’t need man to be birthed!

Men can argue, but the truth prevails! JESUS is experienced today as well! He’s in the heart of man and Salvation is only through JESUS, no other. Oh good GOD, yes HE is JESUS!
