As one author once said… “All the armies that ever marched, and all the navies that ever sailed, and all the parliaments that ever sat, and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon earth as has that one solitary life.”
Who do you say Jesus is?
There is more to Jesus than meets the eye…
One memorable day when Jesus calmed a furious storm on the sea of Galilee, the writer Mark records the response of the disciples, they were ‘terrified and asked each other “Who is this?” Even the wind and the waves obey him!‘
The Jesus of the Bible is not the wishy washy character often portrayed in popular films and books. He is a real man, who did real and remarkable things.
No serious historian doubts the existence of Jesus but the question remains… Who is he?
The Bible tells us that Jesus ‘went about doing good’, but of course he is so much more than a good example to follow; he is also a gracious saviour to trust in!
Jesus lived and died and rose again and he calls all people everywhere to follow him through death to life. One day when he speaking to a group of people who thought they were OK without him he challenged them with these words… ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’
Jesus came for those who know they need help; those who know they’ve messed up and need to be forgiven. He came to give life to the downtrodden and marginalised. But most amazing of all are the claims he made about himself. He claimed to be God on earth.
