Who is Jesus ?

The name ‘Jesus Christ’ is perhaps one of the most recognized names in the history of humanity. It transcends borders, languages, and centuries, reverberating with a resonance that touches souls deeply. But who exactly is Jesus Christ? To unravel this, we must journey through scripture, history, and personal experiences.




Jesus of Nazareth was a Jewish man who lived approximately from 4 B.C. to 30 A.D. Born in Bethlehem, he spent most of his life in the region now known as Israel. The Tora speaks about Jesus all throughout but gospels of the New Testament, primarily Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, provide detailed accounts of his life, teachings, miracles, crucifixion, and resurrection.


Jesus,The Son of God


Jesus isn’t just a historical figure; he is the Son of God, the Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament. His divine nature is a core belief. John 3:16 beautifully encapsulates this: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus was God incarnated in human form, living amongst us, experiencing our pain, joy, temptations, and ultimately, our death.

John 1:1-14

The Word (Jesus) was God and became flesh.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”


John 10:30

“I and the Father are one.”



John 8:58

“Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.'”

Jesus, The Teacher

Jesus wasn’t just known for his divine miracles but also for his profound teachings. Through parables and sermons, he conveyed messages of love, forgiveness, faith, and the Kingdom of God. The Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew Chapters 5-7, is a testament to his unparalleled wisdom. His teachings weren’t just religious; they were deeply human, emphasizing compassion, humility, and righteousness.

The Ultimate Sacrifice


Colossians 2:9

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form”


Philippians 2:5-8

Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.


Titus 2:13

“waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ.”

The crucifixion of Jesus is a pivotal event in Christian theology. It symbolizes the immense love of God for humanity. Jesus, blameless and without sin, took upon himself the sins of the world, suffering on the cross. His resurrection three days later wasn’t just a triumph over death but also a promise of eternal life for believers. It’s through Jesus’ sacrifice that humanity finds redemption and a bridge to reconnect with the Divine.

Ephesians 2:TEN and Our Divine Blueprint

As we delve deeper into understanding Jesus, it becomes crucial to comprehend our relationship with God. Ephesians 2:10 states, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” This verse is profound in its implications.

The word ‘masterpiece’ isn’t used lightly. Think of the greatest artworks or music compositions. They are unique, timeless, filled with depth, and carry the essence of their creator. In the same way, each human is God’s handcrafted work of art. We aren’t accidents or mere biological entities. We are intentionally designed, filled with purpose and potential.

Jesus Christ exemplifies this divine masterpiece in us. In his life, we see our highest potential – to love unconditionally, to sacrifice selflessly, and to rise above our worldly confines. By understanding and accepting Jesus, we aren’t just embracing a savior but also realizing the divine blueprint within us.

Every act of kindness, every leap of faith, every moment of introspection brings us closer to realizing this masterpiece within. Jesus, in his teachings and life, provided a template. But Ephesians 2:10 reminds us that this isn’t just about emulation. It’s about discovering our unique path, our individual purpose, and our personal relationship with God.

The Call to Discover

So, who is Jesus Christ? He is the Son of God, the Savior of humanity, a profound teacher, and the embodiment of sacrificial love. But he is also a mirror, reflecting the divine potential within each of us. As we navigate through life’s myriad challenges and joys, may we always remember that we are God’s masterpieces, intricately designed and filled with purpose.

The journey with Jesus isn’t just one of worship but also one of self-discovery. By seeking Him, we find ourselves. By understanding Him, we uncover our divine purpose. And by walking with Him, we stride towards fulfilling our potential, beautifully and masterfully crafted by the Divine.

Join us at 2:Ten Church in Phoenix, Arizona, as we together embark on this journey, exploring the depths of Jesus’ love and discovering the masterpiece within each of us. Your masterpiece awaits; it’s time to uncover it.

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
