The Deity Of Christ

The most important person who ever walked on the face of this earth is Jesus. His birth is so important that it has split history into two parts and serves as the basis for the calendar most of us use to this day. History tells us that Jesus was a first-century Jew who lived in Israel during the reign of Tiberius Caesar. No one of serious academic achievement would truly deny that Jesus lived. The question they ask is, “Who was He?” The identity of Jesus provides the dividing point between Christianity and all other religions. Many are willing to give Him some honor, teaching that He was a prophet or a great man. However, Christians teach that Jesus was more than a man. He is God. This chapter will examine what the Bible teaches about Jesus. First, we will look at the person of Jesus and show that He is both God and man. Second, we will look at the work Jesus came to do. Finally, we will examine five commonly misunderstood phrases about Jesus.
