If Jesus was not the Son of God, then He was just a man hanging on a cross, and the foundational cornerstone of Christianity is a myth. Alistair Begg examines Scripture to find out who Jesus really is. In the Gospels, Jesus made six direct claims that He is both God and man, and it is imperative that we understand that it was, indeed, the Son of God hanging on the cross.
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?
