Who is Jesus?


Who is Jesus: In History

There is great historical evidence around Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  We know that roughly 2000 years ago Jesus walked the earth. We know that it caused a stir at the time.  We know that many people chose to follow him.  And we know for some of those people they followed him at great personal cost

We know from history of significant events in his live including his birth, death and resurrection.

His birth and death were significant in revealing his identity and purpose and his resurrection and it historical credentials verify that Jesus is who he said he is.


Who is Jesus: Good News

Consider for a moment how Jesus interacted with people who he met.  Consider what he carried into every conversation.  Consider what anybody who had any encounter with him could walk away with.  To put is simply, It was was good news for you when you interacted with Him.

He is good news…To those that are suffering
He is good news…To those that are struggling with their failure
He is good news…To those that are lonely
He is good news…To those that are not sure what purpose there can be in this life
He is good news…To those that think they have life all sown up
He is good news…To those that know they have not lived up to God’s ideal for them
He is good news…To those that don’t think they need Jesus
He is good news…To the young and to the old…and anybody in between
He is good news…To those that are stressed and anxious
He is good news…To those that are grieving the loss of loved ones
He is good news…To those that are worried by the events of this world
He is good news…To those that want to understand what happens after we die
He is good news…To those that are sick and tired of religion

In fact we could have shortened that list by simply reading out what an angel said about Jesus

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.” (Luke 2:10)

How does an angel answer the question of ‘Who Is Jesus’? Well at least in part the angel says: You don’t have to be afraid of Jesus; He is good news; That will cause great joy; For ALL people

So I encourage you to check out Jesus Because he is good news and worth following wholeheartedly
