John’s gospel states that Jesus is “the Word of God,” but what does that mean? Alistair Begg helps us with some basic—yet important—theology: the Word is eternal, the Word created the world and the universe, the Word was and is God, and the Word was with God. As we come to rely on these biblical truths about Jesus, the Word, we discover that each person in the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, fulfilled a role in saving sinners.
Who is Jesus? Can ordinary people understand His identity, or do you need a seminary education? In Jesus 101, Alistair Begg emphasizes that the search for the real Jesus must always lead us to the Scriptures. Only in the Bible do we meet the Man Who is God, the living Word Who is Prophet, Priest, and King; only there do we learn of the Lamb sacrificed to bring salvation to a lost and dying world, the majestic Ruler of a kingdom that will last for all eternity. When we have a solid biblical grasp of who the Savior is, and of what He accomplished on our behalf in His life and atoning death, our hearts are filled with awe and adoration at the mention of His name, “Jesus.”
