At Christmastime, many of us are indifferent to Jesus. We may think He was a benevolent man who lived a long time ago, and we’re happy to join in the tradition of giving gifts on His birthday. Alistair Begg teaches us that, if we truly confront the Jesus of the Bible, we cannot be indifferent to Him. The Scriptures show us who Jesus is, why He came, and what His ministry has to do with our lives today.
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?
