Who is Jesus?

 

John 5.1-23:

Teacher? Prophet? Good Man? Liar?

 

So often people who reject the Gospel claim they believe Jesus existed, that He was a good man or a good teacher. They may even call Him a prophet, but they don’t believe He was God. And they refuse to believe Christianity is the only way to heaven.

But you can’t have it both ways!

Either He is who He says He is or He can’t be a good man or a good teacher. He would be a liar, because He clearly said He and the Father are One.

Verses 17-18, “… ‘My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.’ Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.”

And, in spite of some popular movies and liberal theologians, He said in John 14.6:

 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

So, who is Jesus? Or more importantly, who is He to you?
