The questions we like to ask about God are endless: “Is God real?” “are what we know about Him really true?” and “What does He have to do with my life?” to list just a few.
The Bible may not answer all our questions about God – in fact, it could lead us to ask further questions. The Bible, however, has a definite answer to the question: "who is Jesus?
Jesus commends the apostle Peter’s confession of Him as “the Messiah, the Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16), because Jesus knew that who He is – and could be to us – has the power to change our lives. Jesus is so unique because two worlds collide in him: heaven and earth, the divine and the human.
C.S. Lewis, a well-known Christian author, wrote of Jesus, “Either this man was, and is, the son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon, or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God but let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” Yes, Jesus’ name is the name above all names, and His star-breathing, storm-calming, miracle-working power is second to none. Yet, He is also the human Jesus, the friend who knows what we are going through and cares about us. That’s why the Bible also calls Him “Immanuel”, God with us.
