Who is Jesus Christ?
“I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.”
Jesus is the most important man in human history. BC and AD dates prove His importance. Christianity is by far the world’s largest religion. The Bible, which is the Christian holy book about Him, is by far the most published book in history.
Jesus was a Jew. He was born in Bethlehem of Judea and raised in Nazareth of Galilee. He was circumcised the eighth day and kept Moses’ Law His whole life. He worshipped God in the Jews’ second temple before the Romans destroyed it.
The Jewish scriptures foretold of Him from the Garden of Eden to the prophecy of Malachi. He was to be their Messiah – their God-sent Deliverer and King. He would be fully God and fully man, born of a virgin, to rule the universe for God.
God told Satan in the Garden of Eden that an eventual Son of Eve would destroy him. God told Abraham that his Son would be a blessing to all nations of the earth. God told David that this Son would be among His descendants and King forever.
The prophet Isaiah told how this coming virgin-born Son would die for the sins of His people to save them from the punishment they deserve in hell. It is this death of Jesus on a Roman cross that the New Testament tells of from beginning to end.
After being killed, Jesus rose from the dead, was seen by over 500 eyewitnesses, and ascended into heaven where He rules at God’s right hand – the most glorious Man ever. He lives to guarantee eternal life to each of those God assigned to Him.
He will return to earth soon to raise all dead bodies. His people will be declared to be righteous; they will inherit heaven and a new universe. All other persons – the wicked that sin daily and promote evolution – will be sent to eternal torment.
