The identity of Jesus is the central issue for Christians. What sets Christianity apart from other world religions is not a unique set of rules or rituals, but a unique belief in who Jesus is and in what his identity means for the world. The reason the question is so central is that in the Bible, our response to Jesus is presented as the issue that determines our status with God and our eternal destiny. John 14:6 says, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
Our belief of Jesus can be summed up in three statements.
Jesus is Divine
Jesus Is Human
Jesus is Our Savior
He was crucified in order to bring us forgiveness of sins, and he was raised in order to pave the way for eternal life.
