Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

God

God is both our sovereign Creator and our righteous Judge. Therefore, we are doubly accountable to Him for all our behavior — word, thought, and deed. (Neh. 9:6, Ps. 98:9)

Man

Man was created by God, in God’s image, to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, but man sinned against God by disobeying His holy law. Man, therefore, separated himself from God’s holy and satisfying presence and incurred His wrathful displeasure. (Gen. 1:27, Rom. 3:23, Rom. 1:18)

Jesus

Jesus Christ’s death is the substitute payment for the penalty that we deserve for our sin. His death is God’s only provision for the forgiveness of man’s sin and the appeasement of God’s wrath against him. (Isa. 53:6, John 3:36, Acts 4:12)
Jesus Christ’s physical resurrection from the dead conquered death and sin. It provides hope for a future resurrection of all believers. Belief in the resurrection is an essential doctrine of Christianity. (1 Cor. 15)

Response

We are called to respond to this good news in repentance and belief, turning away from our sin and self-sufficiency toward God, and trusting in the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the substitute penalty that we deserved for our sin. (Mark 1:15, Rom. 10:9-10)
