Who is Jesus?

Do you really know Jesus?  I mean REALLY know him; who he is and what he has done for you.  Following are some passages from the bible describing some of the characteristics of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  • Servant (Matthew 12:18- “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to all the nations.”)
  • Christ (Matthew 16:15-16- “But what about you? he asked. Who do you say I am?  Simon Peter answered, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”)
  • Lamb of God (John 1:29- “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.”)
  • Bread of Life (John 6:35- “Then Jesus declared,’I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'”)
  • The Word (John 1:1, 14- “In 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.”)
  • Light of the World (John 8:12- “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'”)
  • Eternal (John 8:58- “‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!'”)
  • The Resurrection (John 11:25-26- “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”)
  • Good Shepherd (John 10:10-11- “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.  I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.”)
  • Son of Man (John 12:23- “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.”)
  • Teacher (John 13:13- “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord’, and rightly so, for that is what I am.”)
  • Lord (Acts 2:36- ” Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”)
  • Savior (Acts 13:23- “From this man’s descendants God has brought to Israel the Savior Jesus, as he promised.”)
  • Mediator (1 Timothy 2:5- “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”)
  • Son of God (Hebrews 4:14- “Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.”)
  • High Priest (Hebrews 4:15- “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are- yet was without sin.”)
  • King of Kings (Revelation 19:16- “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS!”)
