Who is Jesus?

    What I say about Jesus:

Jesus is my kinsman redeemer
He is my Lord, my Savior
He is deserving of all glory
Jesus is the Son of the Living God
He is the Creator
He is the Messiah of the Israelites
Jesus holds the title deed to the earth
He is the Good Shepherd
He is holy
Jesus is healer
Jesus knows all your thoughts
He is our only hope
He is a historical figure
He rose from the dead
He is alive
He lived a perfect, sinless life
He is the author of the Bible
The whole Bible is not only by Him but *about* Him
He died a substitutionary death on the cross to pay for my sins and the sins of the world, to God's glory
He broke the stranglehold sin had over me

    Jesus said about himself:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you have known me, you will also know my Father. From now on you know him and have seen him.”
"I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never become hungry, and whoever believes in me will never become thirsty."
“I am the light of the world. The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
“I am the resurrection and the life. The person who believes in me, even though he dies, will live. Indeed, everyone who lives and believes in me will never die."
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. He will come in and go out, and find pasture. "
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vintner. He cuts off every branch that does not produce fruit in me, and he cuts back every branch that does produce fruit, so that it might produce more fruit."
"I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
"This is my Father’s will: That everyone who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him to life on the last day."
"I and the Father are one.”
“Truly, I tell all of you emphatically, before there was an Abraham, I AM!”

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me;
he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed
and to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives,
and release from darkness for the prisoners;
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,”
“Today this Scripture has been fulfilled, as you’ve heard it read aloud.”

To know him is to know God
To see him is to see God
To believe in him is to believe God
To receive him is to receive God
To hate him is to hate God
[quotes are from the Bible, the above is from the book Basic Christianity by John Stott]

    What the Book of the Revelation of Jesus the Messiah says:

He is the faithful witness
Jesus is the firstborn of the dead
He is ruler of the kings of the earth
He is the one who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood
He is the first and the last, the alpha and omega
He is the one who holds the sharp, two edged sword
He makes all things new
Jesus holds the keys to death and hades
His eyes are like flaming fire and whose feet are like glowing bronze
He is ‘The one who is holy, who is true,
who has the key of David,
who opens a door that no one can shut,
and who shuts a door that no one can open,
‘The Amen, the witness who is faithful and true, the originator of God’s creation
He is worthy
Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah
He is the Root of David
He is the lamb of God
He owns the Book of Life
He is named Faithful and True
He is the rider on the white horse
He will rule the nations with an iron rod
He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty
He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords
He is the bright morning star

    The Aposlte John wrote of Jesus:

"In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. 3 Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity. And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out."

He is My Lord and my God!
He is coming back soon!
