Who is Jesus?
To find out about a person, a good starting place is to discover what they say about themselves.
So what did Jesus say about himself?
‘’I am the Bread of Life’’ – He is the one who can fulfil people’s deepest hunger.
‘’I am the Light of the World’’ Jesus can bring light into people’s worst darkness.
‘’I am the Resurrection and the Life’’ Because of Jesus, death is no longer life’s full stop.
Jesus forgave people’s offences; He healed people’s bodies; He restored people’s dignity. Things only God can do, but He also claimed ‘’I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father (God) except through me’’.
Either Jesus knew his claims were untrue – He’s a liar - Bad, or
He did not know they were untrue, and so insane? – Mad, or
They were true and He is God.
C.S. Lewis said this ‘You must make a choice, let us not come up with any patronising nonsense about him just being a great teacher. He has not left this open to us. He never intended to.’
