Sermons about Who Is Jesus
- Focusing on Jesus’ death and resurrection will help us better comprehend why He is the only route to heaven and hell. In no global religion, nor did any of its founders or leaders, did they claim to have died as a sacrifice for human sin in order to restore us to proper relationship with God. The resurrection of a heavenly founder does not constitute a foundational element in any other world religion. During a conversation with the Jewish teacher Nicodemus, Jesus explained that God’s love had been supremely shown via sending His “one and only Son,” so that anyone puts their confidence in Him would not perish but would have eternal life (John 3:16). It has been revealed to us that Jesus is God’s own son, the last and complete revelation of God among us (Matthew 1:23). He did not come just to demonstrate His deity in human form, but also to give Himself as an adequate sacrifice for our sin and alienation from the Creator of all things. The Son of Man came to seek and to redeem what had been lost, as Jesus proclaimed in Luke 19:10, and “to give his life as a ransom for many” (Luke 19:18). (Matthew 20:28). After announcing to His followers that He had “all authority in heaven and on earth,” Jesus instructed them to “make disciples of all nations” by instructing them to follow His teachings (Matthew 28:18-20). Historically, the actuality of Jesus’ resurrection serves as a foundation for this exhortation to follow him. In the absence of this miraculous occurrence, it is impossible to explain the origins and quick expansion of the Christian movement. The accounts of Christ’s resurrection in the New Testament are recorded by eyewitnesses or by individuals who carefully reviewed them not long after the events took place in question (2 Peter 1:16
- Luke 1:1-4). It has been proven that they are historically accurate via extensive research. Accepting Christ as the resurrected Lord does not have to and should not be a blind leap of faith into the unknown. It is possible to do so. As a result, Peter advised his readers to “provide an explanation to everyone who inquires as to the rationale for the hope that you have” by responding to “everyone who asks you to explain the basis of your optimism” (1 Peter 3:15). I don’t do religion as a recreational activity. He is the one who rules over all things. As a result, Peter said that “salvation can be found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Even in a society rife with erroneous interpretations of Christ, we may take solace in the gospel’s truth, “for it is the power of God to save everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16).

1 review| 9,835 views based on a single rating Decisions and decisions-making occur on a daily basis for all of us. Some are little and trivial, whilst others might have long-term ramifications for the individual concerned. When Jesus asked the question, he was thinking about something that had eternal ramifications. My male contemporaries describe me as What is the identity of Jesus, and where did he come from? The book of Mark 8:27-30 As we continue to make our way through Mark’s narrative, we come to an intimate time with Jesus and His disciples once again.

Who exactly is Jesus? As a result, this is the season in which we commemorate Christ’s birth. There are several customs that we follow in order to remember Christ’s birth. However, the issue remains as to who he is. The answers to that question are as many and diverse as the number of persons present in this space. People are perhaps far more divided than usual since they have two, three, or four points of view. When we take a look at the various perspectives on Jesus, there are a handful that stand out above all others.
- They were the ones that were in attendance.
- They walked with Jesus or with those who walked with Jesus, depending on who you ask.
- “Go and tell people about me and represent me to the rest of the world,” Jesus instructed.
- One of them apostles is the apostle Paul.
- It is important to remember that the apostle Paul was a man who lived at the same time and in the same era as Jesus.
- However, as a result of God’s will, this same individual was converted fully and entirely.
- He sends a letter to the Christian church in the ancient city of Colossae, which is located in modern-day Turkey, because there are differing viewpoints about who Jesus is in that church and in that city, just as there are now, about who Jesus is—Jesus is this, Jesus is that.
This is the essence of who Christ is. The fact that we think, as has been the case throughout church history, that while these statements are the exact words of the apostle Paul, they are also equally true is crucial to emphasize.

Who Is Jesus To Me?
MarkSermonSubmittedPresented34:06 Intro: Our lives are full of unanswered questions. We are presented with a variety of questions, some of which are extremely banal and routine. The queries “What should I dress today?” “Where do you want to have dinner?” and “What do you want to watch on television?” are not the types of questions that we ask ourselves on a regular basis that have long-term significance in our lives. · Some of life’s questions are simply unanswerable, and this is one of them.
- Consider the following questions, for example: “Will you marry me?” “What will we name the baby?” and “Doctor, what is my prognosis?” These are all questions that have lasting ramifications for the person who answers them.
- The first inquiry is concerned with what other people have to say about Jesus.
- The response they give to His first inquiry reveals whether or not they are in the kingdom of God.
- The answer to this question will influence where you will spend the rest of your life.
- · Jesus and His followers are said to be in the “city of Caesarea Philippi,” according to the Bible.
- It is here that a spring emerges from Mount Hermon, which eventually becomes one of the tributaries of the Jordan River, which flows into the sea.
- As a result of its historical significance as a seat of Baal worship, the city was formerly known as “Balinas.” Baal was the Phoenician deity of fertility and nature, and he was worshipped as such.
- Pan was a half-goat, half-man deity who was revered as the protector of flocks and the protector of nature.
- Each year, the people of this city were forced to enter this temple, sprinkle a pinch of incense on a blazing altar, and proclaim “Caesar is Lord!” The temple was located in the heart of the city.
Furthermore, it was at this place that Simon Peter realized for the first time that Jesus Christ was, in fact, the Son of God.
The Lord’s first question is this: “Whom do men say that I am?”
Jesus was well aware of what the public was saying about Him. He wasn’t paranoid, and He wasn’t looking for attention from others. To get the disciples to reflect about their own beliefs about who Jesus was, Jesus used the ideas of the people about His identity to provoke them to consider their own beliefs about who Jesus was. · When Jesus poses this inquiry, his men respond by telling him what they have been hearing from others. They said that some believe you are “John the Baptist,” while others believe you are “Elias,” and still others believe you are “one of the prophets.” Let’s take a moment to dissect their response in more detail.
It was a message of repentance and virtue that both men delivered.
Herod Antipas, of course, believed that Jesus was none other than John the Baptist, who had been risen from the grave, as recorded in Mark 6:14.
Others believed that Jesus was Elijah raised from the dead.
In light of the fact that both Jesus and Elijah conducted ministries that were defined by clear, compelling preaching and persuasive miracles, this makes a bit more sense.
Others believed that Jesus was “One of the prophets”.
The list was lengthy and included luminaries like Moses, Daniel, the prophet Isaiah, the prophet Jeremiah, the prophet Hosea, and others. Jesus proclaimed the Law of God in the same way that Moses did. Jesus, like the prophet Isaiah, talked about sacrifice and holiness. After all, he was “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with anguish,” according to Isaiah 53:3. The message of Jesus, like Daniel’s message, was a prophetic prophecy about a future King and His reign. The ministry of Jesus, like that of Jeremiah, was characterized by compassion as well as brokenness.
That’s what the people were saying, but other voices were also expressing their opinions about Jesus in that day.
The Pharisees and other religious elitists of Jesus’ day were as follows: 20And many of them replied, He is possessed by a devil and is insane; why do you listen to him? These were the Scribes, the persons who were regarded as renowned instructors of the Law: He has Beelzebub, and he casts devils out by the power of the ruler of devils, according to the scribes who came down from Jerusalem to witness this. The Sanhedrin, the governing body of the Jewish faith, is comprised of the following members: 65When the high priest saw this, he threw his robes on the ground and said, “He has spoken blasphemy; what further need do we have of witnesses?” As a result, you have now been exposed to his blasphemy.
They responded by declaring him to be guilty of death.
Even while Jesus hung on the cross, willing to give His life as a payment for sin, the religious establishment continued to demonstrate their hatred for the Savior and His sacrifice.
32 Allow Christ, the King of Israel, to descend from the cross at this time, so that we may witness and believe. And he was hated by others who were crucified with him.
Not every voice in that day was lifted against Jesus. Some people knew Who He was and proclaimed Him openly.
29 When John looks up the following morning, he sees Jesus approaching him and exclaims, “Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world.” The Angels were correct in their interpretation of Luke 2:9-14. Luke 2:25-35 demonstrates that Simeon was correct. Luke 2:36-38 demonstrates that Anna was correct.
The dying thief got it right
42 “Lord, keep my name in mind when thou comest into thine kingdom,” the man replied to Jesus. According to Mark 15:39, the Roman Centurion got it right. The blind man guessed correctly in John 9:38. The people gathered outside of Jerusalem were correct – John 12:13. Even the devils understood what was going on – Mark 5:7. Those were the words spoken about Jesus by some of the individuals who lived at the time.
What are they saying about Him in our day?
Just as there were a variety of viewpoints on Who Jesus was and is now, there are a variety of viewpoints on Who He was and is today. The Muslim believes that Jesus was a prophet, but that He was not crucified on a cross as Christians believe. He will return, but he is not the God of the universe. According to Hinduism, Jesus is only one of millions of gods that exist simultaneously. Jewish tradition holds that Jesus was a great prophet and teacher, but that He is not the divine being that He claims to be.
- Jesus was the first baby born to God in Heaven, according to Mormon belief.
- Those who believe in Jesus as the Archangel Michael think that he was once the Archangel Michael prior to His advent into this world.
- Because the atheist believes that God does not exist at all, he or she has no interest in Jesus or his teachings.
- Despite popular belief, society believes that Jesus was a brilliant teacher and that He had some good ideas about loving your fellow man and being nice to others.
- Despite the fact that the majority of people accept His existence, they do not recognize His authority or pay Him the reverence that He deserves.
- Before we can put this concept to rest, we need to hear one more point of view from someone.
What does God in Heaven have to say about this man called Jesus.
A variety of viewpoints exist now concerning who Jesus was and is, just as there were throughout His lifetime on this planet. Islam claims that Jesus was a prophet but that He was not killed on a cross as the Christians believe. The fact remains that He will return, but that He isn’t the Creator. Among the millions of gods worshipped by Hindus, Jesus is only one of them. Jewish tradition holds that Jesus was a great prophet and teacher, but that He is not the divine being. God, in a physical body, had sexual relations with Mary, God’s own daughter, according to Mormon belief.
He is Lucifer’s spirit brother, and he lives in the realm of the dead.
It is their opinion that Jesus Christ is not God shown in human form.
When it comes to Jesus, the agnostic is completely perplexed.
Despite the fact that most people are aware of His presence, they do not recognize His authority or offer Him the reverence that He deserves. Human theories and viewpoints about Jesus have been presented to us. It is necessary to hear one more point of view before we can put this idea to rest.
When Jesus was transfigured, God the Father said:
5While he was still speaking, behold, a brilliant cloud gathered about them, and a voice spoke out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well delighted; hear ye him.
If God the Father says that Jesus is His Son that is good enough for me!
After hearing what His followers have to say about what others have said, Jesus asks them for their thoughts. The public has spoken, and now he wants to hear their own viewpoints on the subject matter. Here it is, at long last, the decisive time! Everything Jesus has taught them and demonstrated to them has been building up to this point in time, they believe. The culmination of every miracle had led to this one precise point in time. Every word of truth Jesus gave was a call to His followers to come to this great spiritual fork in the path.
Jesus simply asks, “But, Whom say ye that I am?”
Even though it is a basic question, the ramifications of the answer are profound. If one gives the proper response to the question, they will go to Heaven; if one gives the erroneous answer, they will go to Hell. Peter, as was customary, spoke on behalf of the entire group. “Thou art the Christ!” Peter said emphatically. He got it exactly correct! Matthew’s account of these events includes a quotation from Peter, who says, “Thou are the Christ, the Son of the living God,” Matthew 16:16.16 And Simon Peter said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,” and the rest is history.
- Seeing Jesus, Peter realized that he was the Messiah, which is exactly what the term “Christ” implies.
- Its literal translation is “The Anointed One.” Jesus was also referred to be the “Son of God” by Peter.
- It is made even more incredible by the fact that, up until this moment, only God and devils have been able to perceive the Lord Jesus as who he truly is.
- “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father who is in heaven,” according to Matthew 16:17.
- John 6:44 states that this is true in every genuine conversion.
- Those who are saved are those who have their spiritual eyes awakened by the Lord.
He was well aware of Jesus’ identity, and he freely confessed Him.
On that particular day, there was a guy by the name of Judas Iscariot there.
Judas died a lost cause, and according to Jesus’ own testimony, he was a “demon,” John 6:70.
No one has the authority to speak for you.
Finally, it doesn’t matter what anybody else has to say about Jesus; it all boils down to whether or not you think He is who He claims to be.
What you say in response to that question will influence where you will spend the rest of your life.
You, my friend, are transgressing the law of the light!
Perhaps you are like the agnostic in that you just do not think that anyone can be certain about such things in this life.
Take a look about you at the transformed lives and realize that individuals do not have the ability to bring about such drastic transformation; it is a God-given ability, 2 Cor.
Possibly, you subscribe to some of the erroneous teachings of cults and other faiths regarding Jesus’ divinity.
“Friend, this is the truth: The Bible says in John 3:16 that we are to love one another.
I said therefore to you that ye shall die in your sins: for if you do not believe that I am he, you shall die in your sins,” John 8:24.
Perhaps you consider Jesus to have been only a great teacher or a great leader of men.
Take a look at what C.S.
“I’m trying to prevent anyone from saying the truly silly thing that people often say about him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a wonderful moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God,” C.S.
That is the one thing we are not allowed to mention.
He would either be a lunatic, on a par with the man who claims to be a poached egg, or he would be the Devil of Hell, depending on your point of view.
Either this man was and continues to be the Son of God, or he is a lunatic or something far worse.
However, we must refrain from referring to him as a wonderful human teacher in order to avoid appearing condescending.
He had no intention of doing so.” · Peter came to believe that Jesus was God, Lord, and Savior, and he was rescued as a result of his faith.
They were all rescued because of the Lord and Savior.
The question for today is, what do you think about Jesus to be true?
You will either accept Him or reject Him, but you will make a decision about Jesus Christ today, so make your decision now.
“Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God,” could you possibly say?
“I am certain that You are my Savior.” “I reject You, Jesus,” you’d have to proclaim, despite the overwhelming evidence in your favor.
What will the location be? Will you be a part of the heavenly kingdom? Alternatively, do you want to go to Hell?
Who is Jesus to you? Hear Who the Bible says He is:
Adam is known as the Advocate, the Anointed, the Apostle, the Author, the Amen, the Alpha, and the Ancient of Days. The Beginning, the Begotten, the Beloved, the Branch, the Bread, the Bridegroom, the Bright and Morning Star, the Bishop of our souls, and the Radiance of the Father’s splendor are all names for Jesus Christ. Christ is known as the Captain of our Salvation, the Consolation, the Chief Cornerstone, the Counselor, the Covenant, the Chosen of God, and the Christ. The Daysman, the Deliverer, the Dayspring, the Daystar, the Door, and the Desire of all nations are all names for the same person.
- Finisher of our faith, Friend, Forerunner, First Fruits, Faithful Witness, Fountain of life are some of the terms used to describe Jesus.
- The Holy One is known as “Help, Hope, Husband, Horn of Salvation, Hearer, Head of the Church, Heir of all things, High Priest, Hell’s fear, Heaven’s marvel,” and “Healer” in other languages.
- Jesus is known as Judah, the Just, the Judge, and the Judge.
- The Life, the Light, the Love, the Lily, the Lion, the Lamb, the Lawgiver, the Living Stone, and the Lord of Glory are all metaphors for Christ.
- Offspring of David, Omega, Only Begotten of God, Offering, and The Offerer are all names for those who are descended from David.
Righteousness, Rabbi, Ransom, Rest, Root of Jesse, Root of David, Refiner, Refuge, Resurrection, Rose of Sharon, Ruler, Rock of Ages, Regenerate Breath, Root of Jesse, Root of David, Refiner, Refuge, Resurrection, Regenerate Breath Stone, Shepherd, Son of God, Son of Man, Shield, Servant, Seed of the Woman, Surety, Sufferer, Saviour, Sinless Sacrifice, the Same Yesterday, Today, and Forever.
Teacher, Truth, Tabernacle, Testator, Treasure, and Tree of Life are all biblical terms.
Whom Do Men Say that I am?
In verses 30 and 31, Jesus instructed His followers not to inform anybody. He did this since he didn’t have enough time. Were they to have gone across the country teaching that Jesus was the Messiah, it is likely that resistance would have developed to such a level that Jesus would have been unable to accomplish His task. His work has been fulfilled, and He has commanded us to tell the rest of the world about Him. That is exactly what I attempted to accomplish today. First and foremost, answer this question: “Who is Jesus to you?” Before you even begin to think about it, answer this question: What is your response to this question?
Is He your personal Savior? Is He your lord or your master? Is He a wonderful teacher and a great leader of men? Do you think so? Is He a good example to follow? Is He a myth or a reality? Is your life a reflection of the person you claim Jesus to be?
Who is Jesus Christ
SermonSubmittedPresented24:13 Turn to 1 John 4:1-3 and read it aloud. Pray. In the book of 1 John, the Apostle John, one of Jesus’ early followers, writes, “.so ye may know that you have eternal life.” (that is, that ye have eternal life). However, the last verse of the book reveals a secondary motivation for the composition of 1 John, which is in direct correlation with the first. Moreover, we know that the Son of God has come and has given us wisdom in order that we may know him who is true, and that we are in him who is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.
- Why is it necessary for us to understand who Jesus is?
- As a result, it is critical that we comprehend Who Jesus Christ is.
- It is fundamental to soteriology because, if our Lord was not who He claimed to be, then His atonement was an inadequate, rather than a sufficient, payment for sin on the cross.
- Christ, on the other hand, is Christianity.
- Turn to Acts 5:27-39 and read them aloud.
- There is absolutely nothing in the world without Him.
- That is a question that everyone of us must answer: He asks them, “But who say ye that I am?” he continues.
It would be difficult to consider Jesus a great moral teacher if he were simply a man who spoke the kinds of things Jesus said.
You are required to make a decision.
Whether you want to shut him up and call him an idiot, spit on him and murder him as a demon, or fall at his feet and name him Lord and God, let us not come at him with any patronizing bullshit about his being a wonderful human teacher.
He had no intention of doing so.
Before he came to earth, he was known as Michael, the archangel of protection.
On the surface of the planet, he appeared to be a man who had a great life.
Jesus has not returned in physical form; instead, he “returned” in spirit in 1914.
Jesus is considered to be a different deity from the Father (Elohim).
His physical body was formed as a result of a sexual union between Elohim and Mary.
Despite the fact that his death on the cross did not give complete atonement for all sin, it did present everyone with the hope of resurrection.
The virgin birth of Jesus is compared to Adam’s creation.
He was neither crucified nor raised from the dead.
Jesus Christ is a teacher, a guru, or an avatar, depending on who you ask (an incarnation of Vishnu).
Death does not atone for crimes, and he did not rise from the grave to show that he was alive.
He is not a savior, but rather a spiritual model and guru, and he has now been elevated to the status of “ascended master.” He was a New Ager who was able to connect to heavenly power in the same manner that anybody other could do so.
He did not physically resurrect from the dead, but rather “ascended” into a more elevated spiritual world.
There are three distinct gods: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rather than one God shown in three individuals.
Jesus was not physically resurrected from the death.
There are several routes to God, rather than a single path.
People cannot be saved unless they follow all of the doctrines of the church, despite the fact that Jesus died for their sins.
Jesus is not the sole son of God; he is one among many.
Is it really that important to know what other people think about Jesus Christ and whether or not they believe in him?
There is a danger that we will be “pulled into” that “religion” or “cult.” We should be cautious about this.
One such example would be the Seventh-Day Adventists, who base their beliefs on the Bible and the teachings of Ellen White, as well as other sources of inspiration.
Turn to John 5:39-47 and read it aloud.
And many other signs were truly performed by Jesus in the presence of his disciples that are not recorded in this book, including the following: However, these have been written in order for you to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and in order for you to have life through his name believing.
Who Is This Jesus Christ?
Who Jesus is doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. He lived more than 2,000 years ago, so what does it mean now, anyway? The reality is that knowing who Jesus is may have a profound influence on your character, your belief system, and your way of life, among other things. In addition, it will have an impact on your everlasting fate. We can start by reading about Jesus’ birth in order to have a better understanding of who He is. Seven hundred years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Micah predicted that One would emerge from Bethlehem whose origins would be traced back to the beginning of time.
All of this distinguishes Him as being truly extraordinary.
Consequently, Jesus did not begin at birth, but was pre-existent with the Father in heaven before He was born into the world He Himself had designed and constructed.
The Life of Jesus
After that, think about His life. He was nurtured in Nazareth and apprenticed in the trade of His earthly father when he was a young man. However, when He was only twelve years old, He met with the religious authorities of His day in the temple and studied theology with them. (See Luke 2:46-49 for further information.) It is apparent that at this moment, He was preoccupied with the affairs of His heavenly Father’s house. In John 1:29), the Baptist identified Jesus as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,” and a voice from heaven verified that Jesus was “My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased” (Matthew 3:17).
(Matthew 4:17; Luke 4:17) He taught us that if a soldier asks us to go one mile with him, we should walk two miles with him.
These were things the people had never heard before, and even more importantly, they had never experienced teaching with this level of power before-it was clear that He was no ordinary teacher.
The Miracles of Jesus
Then there were the marvels to contend with. The blind were able to see, the deaf were able to hear, and the disabled were able to walk because of Jesus’ order. He was able to heal all manner of illnesses and cast forth demons. With only a few loaves of bread and a few pieces of fish, tens of thousands of people were nourished. Walking on water, calming a roaring sea, and even raising the dead were all things he was capable of. He was a miracle worker, to be sure, but that was not the reason He came to earth.
The multitude swarmed around Him, wanting to be touched by Him.
However, this was not the case for everyone.
Despite the fact that He lived a life of utter sinlessness, there were others who attempted to bring Him to an end.
When I come across someone who says anything like this, I immediately think of “”I don’t believe all that you’re saying about Jesus,” I like to respond by asking, “What exactly is it about Him that you don’t believe?” What is it that He has ever said or done that you disagree with or believe you can prove to be incorrect?” Because, as you may have seen, He has never stopped to be God.
Finding out what someone thinks about himself is one of the most effective strategies to have a better understanding of him.
(See also John 5:37) His announcement also stated that He had not come to be served, but rather to serve, and that He had come to sacrifice His life as a ransom for the sins of the world (Matthew 20:28) -He came to serve as a substitute payment on behalf of all of mankind.
As revealed in the book of John, He claimed to be the Good Shepherd who cares for His flock (10:11), the Bread of Life who may avert hunger (6:48), and the True Vine who abides in us as we abide in Him. (15:1)
Jesus, the Door to Heaven
According to John 10:9, Jesus also identified Himself as the “Door to Heaven,” and in John 14:6, he elaborated on that statement by saying, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.” Those words have prompted many individuals to move away from the speaker, thinking, “What a biased, self-centered remark!” To believe that the only road to Heaven is via the person of Jesus Christ is to be extremely narrow-minded.
- In spite of that, this man known as Jesus is precisely who He claims to be.
- He is the source of all nourishment.
- He is the only way.
- In this case, if you believe all of the other things Jesus stated, but conclude that He cannot be the sole route to Heaven, you are claiming that He only revealed partial truths or that He told lies.
- Either Jesus is who He claims to be, or he is not who He claims to be.
- Considering what He has stated about Himself, either He is a forgery and a fake, or He is precisely who He claims to be: the eternal Son of the living God, the Savior of the universe, and the One who will one day judge each and every one of us.
The Death of Jesus
It goes without saying that we must examine His death in order to understand who Jesus truly is. From the biblical narratives, it is clear that this was no ordinary death for the apostle Paul. His crucifixion was orchestrated by religious leaders—the same ones who had inflated the requirements of the Mosaic law and then bullied the people into complying with them in minute, tedious detail to begin with. As a result of His popularity with the multitudes, these same men became envious of Jesus, fearing that their position of control would be endangered.
- They were dedicated and determined to murder this guy Jesus, no matter what the cost.
- The assassination of Jesus was orchestrated by people who despised Him.
- Between two thieves, they nailed on the cross the living God, dressed in human flesh, the blameless One who was born of a virgin and began His ministry in the power of God the Holy Spirit.
- He never fought against the government or attempted to overthrow it.
- As a result, it appeared as though He had been the victim of a cruel conspiracy and a tragic accident.
- So, what was He doing dying?
- When Jesus died on the cross, it was not merely a man dying; it was an epic, eternal drama in which God the Father put onto His Son the sin-debt of all mankind—past, present, and future—as a penalty for their sins.
One more component must be investigated if we are to truly understand who the man Jesus Christ is: we must go past His death and into His life.
Even His disciples were taken aback, despite the fact that He had warned them beforehand.
(See also John 11:25-26.) His resurrection also serves as a confirmation that everything He has ever spoken is correct.
Is it possible to believe that?
Knowing the truth about who Jesus is means that you are faced with a decision: Will you trust the testimony of the Scriptures and accept Him as your Savior or will you reject Him?
The next time you see a manger scene, think about who is laying there—His life, His death, His statements about Himself, and His resurrection—and what you may learn from them about Him.

Who is Jesus? – Sermon for Pentecost 14
|Text: Matthew 16:13-17Jesus went to the territory near the town of Caesarea Philippi, where he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” “Some say John the Baptist,” they answered. “Others say Elijah, while others say Jeremiah or some other prophet.””What about you?” he asked them. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.””Good for you, Simon son of John!” answered Jesus. “For this truth did not come to you from any human being, but it was given to you directly by my Father in heaven.|
Jesus, without a question, is the figure who has been represented in art the most frequently throughout history. We’ve all seen pictures of Jesus in Bibles and Bible storybooks, each of which depicts him in a completely different way than the others. Rembrandt’s Jesus is extremely human, with lots of light and shadow; El Greco’s Jesus is a striking, slim, somewhat wild, and demanding Jesus; and Angelico’s Jesus is lovely and heavenly, with lots of light and shadow. In his arms are lambs or a kid who is held in the arms of Jesus the Good Shepherd, who is kind, smiling, and caring as he holds them.
- Jesus, without a question, is the person about whom the greatest amount of literature has been written.
- Those are only a few examples.
- His followers took his body and cooked up a tale about him being the redeemer in order to get access to the tomb.
- Ernest Renan (mid-nineteenth century) painted a fairly romantic picture of Jesus as a peculiar, sweet-spirited poet who walked through Galilee preaching virtue to people.
David Strauss, who lived in the mid-nineteenth century, said that the gospels were untrue and that the miraculous claims were nothing more than “myths.” A portrait of Jesus by Albert Schweitzer (early 1900s) depicted him as a prophet who was dissatisfied that God did not intervene and end the world, bring about justice, and make things right.
- Who is correct?
- What matters is who Jesus is in the present day.
- People who had observed Jesus do miracles, listened attentively when he lectured about the Kingdom of God, heard him speak severely to a Canaanite woman, and witnessed what type of person he was were all making educated guesses about who this guy from Nazareth truly was in his heart.
- “How about you?” he said directly, without equivocation.
- “Can you tell me who you believe I am?” This is an issue that is just as pertinent now as it was a thousand years ago.
- “Can you tell me who you believe Jesus Christ to be?” the interviewer inquired.
- It appears that he has formed an opinion about the matter.
I’m not a particularly religious person, but I believe in God and I believe in Jesus Christ as my Saviour and Lord.
Mike Portnoy may be a phenomenal drummer in a rock band, but he voiced what the majority of people believe about Jesus.
That is a question to which I am unable to provide a satisfactory response.
What makes things even more perplexing for individuals is the rise of various faiths in Australia, each claiming to be the only ones who know the truth about God.
The fact that you are a Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Moslem, Taoist, Mahikari, Jew, or Christian doesn’t actually make much of a difference to me.
Several students approached the chaplain of their respective universities and requested him to explain the distinctions between Christianity and Judaism.
They spoke about God, worship, rituals, festivals, customs, traditions, prayer, and even God himself in their discussions.
Christianity is defined by Jesus Christ.
The only religion that possesses Jesus is Christianity.” We believe that God manifested himself in the flesh, as a Jew from Nazareth, to save us.
In Jesus Christ, we believe that God, in the form of a Jewish carpenter’s son who was born, lived for only a short time, died violently in his thirties, and then rose from the dead, has brought us forgiveness and hope.
“You are the Messiah, the son of the living God,” we proclaim with Peter, “and we believe in you.” Knowing biblical truths and following the teachings of the church are just part of what it means to be a Christian.
It entails much more than simply doing nice deeds for others.
I can’t tell you how many times individuals have told me that what they learned in confirmation classes didn’t make a significant impact in their lives after they received their confirmation certificate.
It wasn’t until much later that they began to understand what Jesus was really all about.
It’s not as if they were looking for greater significance in their life until they came to Jesus.
Finally, the Holy Spirit was able to communicate with them, and they were able to see in vivid detail that their faith is all about the relationship between God and them, and that this relationship has changed everything about their attitudes, as well as their relationships with their families and other members of society.
Despite his best efforts, he couldn’t make out what the preacher was talking about.
That single remark had an impact on him, and he began to see his faith in a whole different perspective as a result.
When Peter confessed, “You are the Messiah, the son of the living God,” the congregation applauded.
When Jesus declared, “This truth did not come to you from any human person, but it was given to you straight by my Father in heaven,” he meant that no human being had brought it to him.
Is it possible to have a relationship with God if we are continuously hurting him, forgetting that he exists, ignoring his power and presence, and denying any connection with him by what we say and do?
That kind of behavior from us towards any of our human pals will quickly result in their termination of any contact with us.
God had intended to send Jesus since the days of Adam and Eve in order to put things right between himself and us once more.
In any case, his attitude toward his people remains constant, whether we are speaking of God as we know him in the Old Testament or as we see him crucified on a Roman crucifixion.
The Bible is filled with stories of God reaching out to people out of love for them.
It is because of Jesus’ love for us that we have come to love God, believe we.
Christianity is a way of life, not a set of rules or a philosophy.
When Christians claim that Jesus rose from the grave and is here with us now, that he walks beside us, and that he is closer to us than we are to ourselves, people who are unfamiliar with our beliefs are sometimes met with a degree of skepticism by those who do not understand.
He told her that he was going to labor among the needy, doing charity work, but that he would do so without the baggage associated with Jesus.
Please come back and explain how you accomplished your goal.
Because of her relationship with Jesus, she was able to perform tasks that would have scared even the most courageous of hearts.
As we wrestle with the question of which path to go in and which decision to make, Jesus is right there beside us.
When we are grieving about changes in the church or a lack of love in our families, Jesus is there to comfort us.
We are able to say this because of his grace “You are the Christ, my friend! You have made a significant difference in my life. Thanks!” Pastor Vince Gerhardy is a man of God. Email: ser[email protected] on the 25th of August, 2002 MoreSermons
