Who Is Jesus Christ?

What Everyone Needs to Know about Jesus – Introduction

What is truth? -Pontius Pilate
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)

Jesus Christ is an historical character. There is no doubt that He actually existed. Furthermore, the evidence also demonstrates that the records that we have about Him, contained in the four gospels, are reliable and trustworthy. They prove themselves to be the only firsthand information that we possess about Jesus’ life and ministry. This being the case, we go to these reliable records to discover who Jesus is.

In this book we will examine the identity of Jesus Christ. As the most important figure in history, it is crucial that we have a correct understanding of His identity. The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is God the Son—Second Person of the Trinity. He has eternally existed with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. He came to earth two thousand years ago as the God-man. Although Jesus was only one Person He had two natures—one human and one divine. He was fully human and fully God.

On earth He lived a perfect, sinless life. Therefore He was qualified to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world. Consequently it is absolutely crucial that we have a thorough understanding of the identity of Jesus.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
