who is Jesus Christ?
the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God. . . . The Word became flesh and made his
dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the
One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and
truth. - John 1:1, 14 niv
is the Son of God.
Jesus taught and what he did are tied inseparably to who He
is. The Bible shows Jesus as fully human and fully God. Although
Jesus took upon himself full humanity and lived as a man, he
never ceased to be the eternal God who has always existed,
the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and the source of
eternal life. This is the truth about Jesus, and the foundation
of all truth. If we cannot or do not believe this basic truth,
we will not have enough faith to trust our eternal destiny
to him. That is why John wrote this Gospel—to build faith
and confidence in Jesus Christ so that we may believe that
he truly was and is the Son of God (20:30-31).
is the light of the world.
darkness has not understood it” means the darkness of
evil never has and never will overcome or extinguish God’s
light. Jesus Christ is the Creator of life, and his life brings
light to mankind. In his light, we see ourselves as we really
are (sinners in need of a Savior). When we follow Jesus, the
true Light, we can avoid walking blindly and falling into sin.
He lights the path ahead of us so we can see how to live. He
removes the darkness of sin from our life. Have you allowed
the light of Christ to shine into your life? Let Christ guide
your life, and you’ll never need to stumble in darkness.
is both human and divine.
Word became flesh” means that he became human. By doing
so, Christ became (1) the perfect teacher —in Jesus’ life
we see how God thinks and, therefore, how we should think (Philippians
2:5-11); (2) the perfect example —as a model of what
we are to become, he shows us how to live and gives us the
power to live that way (1 Peter 2:21); (3) the perfect sacrifice —Jesus
came as a sacrifice for all sins, and his death satisfied God’s
requirements for the removal of sin (Colossians 1:15-23).
a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love;
with you I am well pleased.” - Mark 1:11
is a member of the Trinity.
Spirit descended like a dove on Jesus, and the voice from heaven
proclaimed the Father’s approval of Jesus as his divine
Son. That Jesus is God’s divine Son is the foundation
for all we read about Jesus in the Gospels. Here we see all
three members of the Trinity together—God the Father,
God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon
Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living
God.” - Matthew 16:15-16, niv
is the Messiah.
disciples answered Jesus’ question with the common view—that
Jesus was one of the great prophets come back to life. This
belief may have stemmed from Deuteronomy 18:18, where God said
he would raise up a prophet from among the people. Peter, however,
confessed Jesus as divine and as the promised and long-awaited
Messiah. If Jesus were to ask you this question, how would
you answer? Is he your Lord and Messiah?
the woman realized that Jesus knew, she began to tremble and
fell to her knees before him and told why she had touched him
and that now she was well. “Daughter,” he said
to her, “your faith has healed you. Go in peace.” -

people surrounded Jesus as he made his way toward Jairus’s
house. It was virtually impossible to get through the multitude,
but one woman fought her way desperately through the crowd
in order to touch Jesus. As soon as she did so, she was healed.
What a difference there is between the crowds that are curious
about Jesus and the few that reach out and touch him! Today,
many people are vaguely familiar with Jesus, but nothing in
their lives is changed or bettered by this passing acquaintance.
It is only faith that releases God’s healing power. Are
you just curious about God, or do you reach out to him in faith,
knowing that his mercy will bring healing to your body, soul,
