Who is Jesus? Easter is nearing and the reason we celebrate it is because this is how God showed his love for us and how he demonstrated his mercy on us. By Christ Jesus’ living a sinless life during his physical life on earth and through his physical death and again by his physical resurrection, Jesus gave to us the only means by which you and I can be forgiven for our sins. Thus, Easter is the celebration of God’s ultimate sacrifice and death of his only begotten Son and of his only begotten Son’s resurrection; the means throughout the Bible which is discussed from Genesis to Revelation. Many people however, make claim that Jesus is not God and that Jesus did not claim to be God. To these people I suggest reading the Bible so to actually discover that indeed, Jesus claimed to be God and he demonstrated his Divinity in several important ways. Per your God given free will you do not have to choose to accept the fact that Jesus is God, however if you actually read the Bible, you will see clearly that Jesus not only claimed to be God, he also demonstrated the Divine characteristics of God. When people think about the nature of God (even those who doubt God's existence) they typically think of God as all-knowing, all-powerful and all-loving. The gospel eyewitnesses described Jesus as having all three of these Divine characteristics: Jesus is All-Knowing Jesus demonstrated His "omniscience" to the woman at the well. "Leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, 'Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ?'" (John 4:16-19, 28-30). In addition, the Gospels tell us repeatedly that Jesus knew the thoughts of people around Him (Luke 6:8 and 11:17, for example) and He also knew who would betray Him (John 6:70). More importantly, Jesus knows the very nature of our hearts (John 2:24-25) Jesus is All-Powerful Jesus repeatedly demonstrated his "omnipotence" as he performed dozens of miracles. These miracles confirmed His power over nature (Matt 8:23; Mark 4:37; Luke 8:22), His power over disease (Matt 8:2; Mark 1:40; Luke 5:12), His power over need (Matt 14:15; Mark 6:30; Luke 9:10; John 6:1-14), and His power over death (John 11:38-44). But the Bible describes Jesus as far more than a miracle worker. The Bible attributes all of God's power to Jesus: The Power (Ability) to Create Jesus is not simply our Savior. According the Bible, Jesus is also our creator (John 1:3, Colossians 1:16) The Power (Authority) to Forgive Jesus repeatedly demonstrated His Divine authority to forgive sins (Matthew 9:1-8) The Power (Ability) to Grant Eternal...
