Who Is Jesus?

Bill Brinkworth

Today, Jesus is the key to anyone’s getting into Heaven. Since having faith in JesusJesus, and what He has done for us is important, it is essential to know who He is, and what He has done.  Here is some of what the Bible says about Jesus, the Saviour of mankind:

Jesus was the prophesied Messiah that God promised to send.  Some of the 300 plus prophecies about the Messiah include:


Jesus preached and taught God’s message. (Mat. 4:17, Mat. 4:23, John 7:16)

Jesus performed miracles. He did things only a divine person could do.


Jesus is God’s only son. This is why He could do all the miracles He did.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:
16  (John 3:18, John 4:15,I John 4:9, Acts 3:13, Mat. 16:20, Mat. 8:29)


Why Jesus is so important:


Jesus was God in the flesh.  Jesus and God are one! This is the teaching of the Trinity.  God is three in one — the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
“I and my Father are one.” John 10:30
(Philippians 2:6, I John 5:7)

Jesus was sinless.  Only one born supernaturally, as was Christ, could be without sin.  Jesus’ sinlessness was necessary so He could be an acceptable payment for our sins. Only Jesus was sinless.  All others born on this earth are guilty of sin.
“And being made perfect, he [Jesus] became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;” Heb. 5:9 (Heb. 9:14, I Peter 1:19)

Jesus was God’s gift to man.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Rom. 6:23  (John 13:3, John 8:42, John 12:44)


Jesus was not just a man as some claim.  He was God in the flesh come down to this Earth, to die for man’s sins.  All that believe and accept what Jesus did for them, when He died on the Cross and rose again from the dead, can be saved.

That is why making Jesus one’s personal Saviour from the punishment for our sins is so important.  Jesus is the only way anyone will get to heaven.  There is nothing we can do to earn Heaven.  It has all been done for us by Jesus.  All we have to do is believe He died for us, believe that He rose again from the dead on the third day, and ask Him to be our Saviour.  If you have never been saved, and you believe Jesus died for you and rose again, you can ask Him to be your Saviour right now!

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Rom. 10:9
