Who is Jesus? That is definitely one of the most important questions that could ever be asked, as the salvation of every human being that has ever lived depends on the answer! It was a live question when Jesus was here 2000 years ago, and must surely have been in the minds of the writers of what now forms our New Testament. It's an equally true question today. Was he just a good man, or a wise teacher, or was he ( and therefore IS he) actually God?
Almost every world faith has an opinion on the question, as does almost every man in the street. But the focus of this booklet is on what the Bible has to say about him.
It gives abundant Bible references that have a clear implication in reaching confident conclusions about the deity of Christ; and additionally includes some that are capable of varying explanation. In such instances the writer's views are briefly stated taking the approach generally that the less clear Bible statements are best understood by fitting them within the most clear statements. It is best not to regard an apparent exception as demolishing a general rule!
This booklet is therefore commended to readers in the confident hope that the Holy Spirit will use the information it contains to their blessing.
