Who is Jesus?

"A good man." is not an acceptable answer.  Jesus Christ claimed to be God.  A "good man" (who is NOT God), would not do that.

A gentle shepherd?  Nope, he was quite tough.  And did not pull any punches.

Was Jesus a liar? Who will go to a tortuous death to defend a lie?

Was He a lunatic?  For a regular man to claim he was God, he must be insane.  But no.  Jesus is world renowned for His wisdom, his eloquence, and His ability to relate well to people of every state.  He met with religious, political and military leaders, and also ministered to tax collectors and prostitutes.

Let the Apostle John tell us who Jesus is:

John chapter one:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

He refers to "the Word" as being "in the beginning" and having made all things.  Then in verse 14, below, John makes it clear who "The Word" is:

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus Christ was God Himself.  He came to Earth, to suffer death, to die for our sins, and to rise to give us eternal life.
