Who is Jesus?
Who Is Jesus?
Maybe you’ve asked this question before and you’re still not sure of the answer. There are many words the Bible uses to describe Jesus: the Messiah, King of Kings, Helper, Advocate, Deliverer, Good Shepherd, and that’s just a few. Perhaps the most important thing to understand about Jesus is His unconditional love. A verse in the Bible that many people are familiar with is John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
This love is the cornerstone of who He is and the motivation for what He did to save each of us from a life separated from God.
