Christmas stirs up questions for us: Who is Jesus? Why do we celebrate His birth? Is He really God? Alistair Begg examines the Scriptures to uncover if Jesus Himself ever claimed to be God. The people of Jesus’ day understood who He was claiming to be, and it’s important for us to understand who He is too—not just at Christmastime, but all year round.
Who Is Jesus?
Who is Jesus? It’s a question we all need to answer. Is He the Son of God, as Christians have believed for more than 2,000 years—or is he just a man? Alistair Begg examines the Gospels and explains that Jesus made direct claims that He is both God and man. People of His day understood who He was claiming to be. That’s why they accused Him of blasphemy.
Today, people inside and outside the Church are increasingly confused about what they believe and why. We hear fraudulent claims about Jesus throughout our culture, so it is imperative that we have a solid grasp on His person and work. We must pay careful attention to biblical truth, and we need to be able to clearly answer the questions: What did Jesus say? What does it mean? And does it matter to our lives today?
