Who is Jesus Christ really?

The gospel of John in the Bible describes Jesus Christ in the following ways:

• Jesus is the Word of God who created the universe and became a human being (John 1:1-3,14) ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made…..and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us..”
• Jesus is the Lamb that was slain to take away the sins of the world (John 1:29) ‘Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!’
• Jesus is the Bread of Life (John 6:35) ‘I am the bread of life, he who comes to Me shall never hunger.’
• Jesus is the Fountain of Living Water (John 4:14; John 6:35; John 7:37-39) ‘whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.’ ‘….and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.’
• Jesus is the Light of the world (John 8:12) ‘I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.’
• Jesus is God (John 1:1-3; John 8:58) ‘…and the Word was God…’; ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.’
• Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:11) ‘I am the Good Shepherd. —-The Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep.’
• Jesus is the Door (John 10:7,9) ‘…most assuredly I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep…. if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.’
• Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25) ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.’

• Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6) ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’
• Jesus is the True Vine. (John 15:1,5) ‘I am the true Vine and My Father is the Vinedresser. I am the vine and you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him bears much fruit.’
• Jesus is Eternal Life (John 17:3; John 3:16; 1 John 5:11,12) ‘And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom You sent.’
• Jesus died and rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3,4) ‘For I delivered to you first which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and rose the third day according to the Scriptures and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once…’

• John 1:12 says “for as many as received Him (Jesus Christ), to them He(God) gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His Name.” God promises the gift of everlasting life to everyone who repents (turns) from their sins and put their trust in Jesus Christ, His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the dead. If you receive Jesus Christ as your Saviour, Lord and Treasure, God the Holy Spirit will come and make His home within you forever. If you receive Jesus for who He is, it proves that you be born from above, born from the Holy Spirit, and are adopted as God’s son or daughter (John 1:12,13).

• If you reject Jesus Christ in this life as the Saviour and King of the world, and of your life, there remains no chance for forgiveness of your sins and no way to escape the horrors and punishment for your sins and you will therefore spend eternity in utter darkness and in hell. We plead with you not to neglect such a great salvation found in Jesus Christ alone!

Jesus said: Come to Me all you who labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28)
