Who Is Jesus Christ?
He never taught at or established an institution of higher learning, yet all the schools of all times could never measure even close to his number of students. Who Is Jesus Christ?
All the rulers who ever reigned, all the government bodies that ever sat, and all the military campaigns ever engaged, have not affected the life of mankind as powerfully and dynamically as Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus was the most unique human being who ever walked the face of the earth. His birth and death are both singularly unique to him and to him alone.
God’s first mention in Genesis 3 of the seed of the woman came to fruition some 4,000 years later when Jesus was born in Bethlehem to a woman named Mary. Her conception was something God never did before and hasn’t done since. God miraculously created seed in her body that united with her egg. Jesus was literally the Son of God Almighty, the Creator of the heavens and earth.
And this also sets him apart from all human beings
The death of Jesus is also singularly unique to him and to him alone. After his brutal beatings and subsequent crucifixion and death, he remained dead and buried for three days and three nights. Then, his Father, God Almighty, raised him from the dead, to die no more, to live eternally in his new resurrected physical body.
There have been and continue to be people who have been raised from the dead. But no human being has ever been raised from the dead to die no more and to live eternally in a new resurrected body except one: Jesus of Nazareth.
The Bible makes this crystal clear. Scripture points it out for all mankind to take note, that Jesus is indeed the savior of mankind because God raised him from the dead to die no more.
Through the ages there have been people who walked with and for God. But none of them has the unique distinction of being raised from the dead to die no more. This is why Jesus alone holds the title of lord – he is lord of all human beings who have ever lived or will ever live. That’s why when one reads the New Testament, the great focal point of the preaching in the first century was the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
