Who Jesus Is

Posted by admin on 10 March 2013 in Jesus Christ |

The Holy Bible says Jesus is the Creator.

3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. (John 1:3)

# Please read Colossians 1:15-20 for further reference.

The Holy Bible says Jesus was refused by humanity, His own creature......

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. (John 1:9-11)

...... with the reason of the refusal being "loving darkness instead of light".

19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. (John 3:19-20)

This rejection was foretold in Isaiah 53:1-12.

   1 Who has believed our message 
and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
 
2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, 
and like a root out of dry ground.
 
He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
 
nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
 
3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, 
a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
 
Like one from whom people hide their faces
 
he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

   4 Surely he took up our pain 
and bore our suffering,
 
yet we considered him punished by God,
 
stricken by him, and afflicted.
 
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, 
he was crushed for our iniquities;
 
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
 
and by his wounds we are healed.
 
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, 
each of us has turned to our own way;
 
and the LORD has laid on him
 
the iniquity of us all.

   7 He was oppressed and afflicted, 
yet he did not open his mouth;
 
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
 
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
 
so he did not open his mouth.
 
8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. 
Yet who of his generation protested?
 
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
 
for the transgression of my people he was punished.
 
9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, 
and with the rich in his death,
 
though he had done no violence,
 
nor was any deceit in his mouth.

   10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, 
and though the LORD makes
 his life an offering for sin, 
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
 
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
 
11 After he has suffered, 
he will see the light of life
 and be satisfied; 
by his knowledge
 my righteous servant will justify many, 
and he will bear their iniquities.
 
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, 
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
 
because he poured out his life unto death,
 
and was numbered with the transgressors.
 
For he bore the sin of many,
 
and made intercession for the transgressors.

Whoever lives by the truth comes to Jesus.

21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. (John 3:21)

And there is the promise to the believer.

12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. (John 1:12-13)

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
