Who Is Jesus?

Many years ago as a young college student, I recall having a conversation with a fraternity brother whose name I cannot remember.  As a matter of fact, about the only thing I remember of the conversation is something I said concerning Jesus Christ that is burned into my memory.  In a noncommittal and uninformed attempt to say something positive about the Lord, I said I thought He was a good man.  I was wrong!  He cannot be a good man if He is not who He said He is.  If He is not who He said He is, then He can only be a fraud and a liar.  If He is who He said He is, He is so much more than just a good man.

 What did Jesus say about Himself?  Who did He say He is?  In His conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well, she said, in response to the Lord telling her things about herself; I know when Messias is come, he will tell us all things.  Messiah or Christ is the title given to the anointed one of Old Testament prophecy, the One sent from God.  Jesus responded to her comment; I am He.

When Jesus went up to Jerusalem and healed the impotent (blind, halt, or withered) man of his thirty-eight year long infirmity on the Sabbath, the Jewish religious leaders sought to have Him stoned. They sought to kill Him because He had not only broken the Sabbath, but had also said that God was His Father,…..making Himself equal with God, John 5:18.  (See also John 10:33)

In John chapter 8, while Jesus was teaching in the temple, the Pharisees questioned Him asking; Who art thou? and Whom makest thou thyself?  Jesus answered them; Verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am.   When Moses asked God at the burning bush whom he should say had sent him, God replied; Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

In John 10:37&38 Jesus challenged the Pharisees saying;  If I do not the works of my father, believe me not.  But if I do, though ye believe me not, believe the works: that ye may know and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in Him.  Jesus Christ came preaching, teaching, and healing to show unbelieving Israel that He is the promised Messiah.  In addition to the multitude of Old Testament prophecies that were fulfilled in Him, the eye witness evidence is overwhelming.  While He lived among us He changed water into wine, healed the sick, fed the multitudes, healed congenital defects, healed lepers, restored sight to the blind, raised the dead, walked on water, calmed the storm, rose again from the dead and transformed the lives of those who trusted in Him.  He displayed His power over sin, nature, disease, Satan, and finally death itself. He continues to minister among us by transforming the lives of young and old individuals, from every nation, tongue, and race, who trust in Him alone as Lord and Saviour.

Who is Jesus Christ?  He is God.  His message is true and His works prove it.  You should read His resume’.  It is called the Bible.  To ignore Christ is to spurn the love of God and leave your soul in jeopardy of eternal loss.  What will you do with Messiah Jesus?

And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.  John 17:3.

Hello world!

You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.

I can lead you to the living water, but you will have to drink.

Jesus spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:14

saying:

Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never

thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of

water springing up into everlasting life.  

She drank………read the outcome in John 4.
