Who is Jesus Christ...?

One would think that this question after two thousand plus years would have been answered beyond a shadow of the doubt, but it hasn't, lets explore why.

First I guess who Jesus Christ is to you depends on what Christian denomination you call home base. Or perhaps you don't believe in Him at all despite all the hoopla over the centuries about this man from Galilee. There are well over 30,000 plus Christian denominations, that all say they believe in God and Jesus Christ, but lets consider what James says; "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder/tremble.

The confusion comes from all the different denominations out there which I believe are designed to cause trouble and confusion for those who are searching for God. "Denominational Divergence" adds their own take on who Jesus is while ignoring this fact that God alone defines who Christ is for the believer.

Consider; Matthew 16:13-17

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"

They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?"

Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

Now lets consider whether you are currently Christian or just discovering or considering God in your life the only way to understand who Jesus is comes from the Father in heaven as does our faith so nobody can boast consider; Ephesians 2:8-10

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

The other thing is that if you asked everyone you met and know who they think Jesus Christ is you would get as many different answers as people asked. Folks lets leave the revealing to God the Father as it was meant to be and remember if you lack anything keep asking, keep knocking and keep discovering God everyday.


The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
