So far in this series we have dealt with:
What the Bible teaches about the need for Jesus Christ to be our cornerstone-the One that we build our lives upon.
What the Bible, nature, history, and science teach about the existence of God.
How the we can trusts the reliability of the Bible as the authentic Word of God.
And today we will look at this question: Who is Jesus?
A Biblical worldview is crucial if we are going to accurately discern what is truth and that which is not truth.
Learning to look at our culture through the lens of Scripture is a vital need in every Christian’s life.
John 1:1–4
John 1:1–4 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

John is the majestic evangelist. He is the high-soaring eagle with piercing eyes. His is the Gospel of the Son of God. We cannot describe the deity of Christ in clearer language than John uses. He was with God. He was God. He did the works of God, for he was the Creator. If any doubt his deity, they must do so in distinct defiance of the language of Holy Scripture.


One day during Jesus’ earthly ministry, He took His disciples to Caesarea Philippi, a city located in today’s Golan Heights. Above the city stood a steep rock cliff. In the notches of the cliff, pagan people had built shrines to their gods. In front of these shrines, they practiced base forms of idolatry and immorality.
We can imagine the discomfort of the disciples as Jesus brought them to this distinctly pagan place. In this place of idol worship and spiritual darkness, however, Jesus asked them an interesting question:
“Whom do men say that I am?”
Matthew 16:13 KJV 1900
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
The disciples answered that various people suggested various identities for Jesus.
Matthew 16:14 KJV 1900
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
This varied response is true today as well. Many have said that Jesus was simply a prophet, a good moral man, or a good moral teacher.
C. S. Lewis, in his book Mere Christianity, points out the ridiculous nature of any argument that suggests Jesus was merely a good teacher but was not God. He wrote, “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. 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 patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
Many have boiled down Lewis’s argument (referred to as the Lewis’s Trilemma) to three alliterated choices—a lunatic, liar, or Lord. In other words, He was either a madman who believed He was God but wasn’t (lunatic), a man who knew He was not God but claimed He was (liar), or someone who claimed to be God because He is God (Lord).
The alliteration of lunatic, liar, or Lord may help group members grasp and remember this argument better.
Some people suggest that Jesus Himself didn’t claim to be God but His followers later fabricated His claims to divinity. This argument is not historically grounded, but one can see why unbelievers use it.
The deity of Christ is central to the message of the gospel and to the entire Christian faith.
If Jesus is not God, Christianity is an empty, meaningless farce.
On the fortieth anniversary of his broadcasting debut, American television host Larry King was asked what questions he would ask God if he could bring God onto his show. The first question out of his mouth was, “Do you really have a son?”
Even though King claimed to be an agnostic, he understood the importance and implications that the answer to this question would have.
After Jesus’ disciples told Him the speculations others were making as to His identity, He followed up with a piercing question: “But whom say ye that I am?”
Matthew 16:15 KJV 1900
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
This question remains essential for us to answer today. Peter, who didn’t always get the right answer to Jesus’ questions, got this one right.
Matthew 16:16 KJV 1900
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
The word Christ means “the anointed One.” In identifying Jesus as the Christ, Peter was declaring Jesus was the Messiah, the One who came to be the Savior. As Peter stated the truth that day in Caesarea Philippi, he didn’t say something that was unknown or unknowable. He simply stated what had already been clear, but others were unwilling to see.
God the Father had plainly declared Jesus’ divinity at His baptism.
Matthew 3:17 KJV 1900
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Years later, the apostle John wrote the Gospel of John with the intention of setting the record straight regarding the identity of Christ.
John 20:31 KJV 1900
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
If we miss the deity of Christ, we miss the message of salvation and the entire focus of the Bible.
Quote: “From Genesis to Revelation, Jesus Christ is the most important theme of the Bible and almost every page is related in some way to either His person or work. Christianity is Jesus Christ.”—John Walvoord
If we want to have a biblical worldview, we must know who Jesus is. In this study, we will look at three important truths relative to Christ’s identity.

1. The Revelation of Christ

The Bible reveals Christ as the eternal God who took on human flesh that He might redeem fallen humanity.

A. Christ Is Eternal God

Jesus did not begin His life in Bethlehem’s manger. He has always existed—from eternity past—and He will never cease to exist.
The opening statement of the Gospel of John places Jesus Christ—the Word—in the context of time.
The verb “was” in this verse indicates that Christ existed before time began.
John 1:1 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Time began when God created Heaven and earth, yet Jesus existed before time. Since only God is eternal, Jesus is God.
John Rice states: Three times we have the term “the Word” in this first verse. It is obviously a name for the Lord Jesus Christ. He is “the Word” of God, the Revelation of God, the Manifestation of God. He is God approaching man by becoming Man. He is God saving man. So, He is the Revelation of Manifestation of God.
John Rice also said: So Christ and the Word stand together. No one who refuses the Bible as God’s Word can trust Jesus Christ as Saviour. To refuse One is to refuse the Other.
In fact, every attribute of deity can be ascribed to Jesus Christ. He is omniscient (all-knowing) and omnipotent (all-powerful), and His eternality is shown throughout both the Old and New Testaments.
For instance, in the book of Isaiah, God specifically declared that He is the only God and before Him no true God existed, nor will there be any after Him.
Isaiah 43:10 KJV 1900
10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, And my servant whom I have chosen: That ye may know and believe me, And understand that I am he: Before me there was no God formed, Neither shall there be after me.
But in John 8, Jesus declared He has eternally existed.
John 8:58 KJV 1900
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
The implication of Jesus’ statement in John 8:58—that He is the eternal God—was so clear that the unbelieving Jews believed He was blaspheming God and picked up stones to kill Him (verse 59).
In reality, Jesus could not be God and not be eternal.
As one theologian wrote, “The eternality and deity of Christ are inseparably linked together. Those who deny His eternality also deny His deity.”
After establishing the eternality of Christ, our text verse also points to Jesus’ deity by showing His relationship to God the Father. John 1:1 … and the Word was with God … This reveals Christ the Son as a separate person from the Father and yet “with” the Father.
The phrase “with God” portrays the idea of two persons face to face with each other.
Here we see that Jesus is not simply a partial expression of God—God briefly manifesting Himself in human form. Rather, it plainly shows that God the Son and God the Father—though both God—are separate persons.
Those who are familiar with Genesis 1 easily see the similarities between the opening verses of Genesis 1 and of John 1.
Genesis 1:1–4 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
John 1:1–5 KJV 1900
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
The parallel structure of these passages is not by accident. John is pointing out that Jesus is the very Word that was referred to in God’s creative process in Genesis 1.
He is the one who spoke light into existence (Genesis 1:3) because He is light (John 1:4). With John’s added commentary on Genesis 1, we see all three members of the Trinity—one God in three persons—in the opening verses of the Bible.
1 John 5:7 KJV 1900
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The apostle John did not see Jesus as simply a good human. He knew that Jesus was God.
Specifically, John knew that Jesus was the divine originator of all things—the causation of all that exists.

B. Christ Is Manifested in Flesh

MAN´IFESTED, pp. Made clear; disclosed; made apparent, obvious or evident.

Jesus Christ, the eternal God, manifested Himself to us as part of the human race when He came to us and took on human flesh.
John 1:14 KJV 1900
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
The event described here is what we celebrate at Christmas time—deity wrapped in humanity.
Philippians 2:5–8 KJV 1900
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Our God is not a remote, aloof, or untouchable being. He manifested Himself to us in person so that He could struggle through our struggles, walk on our streets, and feel our pain to the fullest degree possible.
And He did all of this so that we could be assured of receiving grace, comfort, and strength when we call out to Him for help.
Hebrews 4:16 KJV 1900
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
This was the physical manifestation of Christ literally coming to our world in the flesh.
The physical manifestation of Christ was also a prophesied manifestation.
Isaiah 7:14 KJV 1900
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, And shall call his name Immanuel.
The very name Immanuel means “God with us.”
Years before Jesus would be born, the Old Testament prophesied that He would be born, how He would be born (miraculously conceived of a virgin), where He would be born, when He would be born, and that He would be God in the flesh.
The Old Testament contains sixty major prophecies specifically concerning the Messiah.

MESSI´AH, n. [Heb. משיח, anointed.] Christ, the anointed; the Savior of the world.

Two hundred and seventy ramifications directly come from those prophecies. Jesus fulfilled every single one of those predictions, and this accomplishment is beyond comprehension.
The mathematical probability of Jesus fulfilling even just eight of these sixty major prophecies is 1 in 10 to the 17th power.
Old Testament Prophecies
In order to help us grasp the enormity of this number, Dr. Peter Stoner has provided an example for our understanding. Imagine the entire state of Texas covered in silver dollars, two feet deep. One coin would be marked, and the entire sea of silver dollars would be thoroughly mixed together. A blindfolded man would be instructed to travel as far as he wished, but he must pick up the marked coin on his first try. The chances of that occurring are the same as Jesus fulfilling even just eight of the sixty major prophecies. And He fulfilled them all!
The probability of Jesus not being the Messiah is mathematically impossible.
Not only was Jesus the physical and the prophesied manifestation of God, but He was also the perfect manifestation of God.
Although Jesus lived in human flesh and encountered intense temptation, He never sinned.
Hebrews 4:15 KJV 1900
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
In spite of Jesus’ perfection, there are those who deny His deity and denigrate His person—making Him appear weak and given over to fleshly desires.
In September 2020, the Church of Iceland posted an online advertisement to its Facebook page that featured bearded Jesus with breasts, makeup, and a dress dancing under a rainbow. The cartoon was also displayed on public transportation buses around the capital city of Iceland.
The Church of Iceland After receiving backlash for the cartoon, the church removed the ad from the internet and expressed regret that people were offended by it.
The church’s media representative stated, “We’re trying to embrace society as it is. We have all sorts of people and we need to train ourselves to talk about Jesus as being ‘all sorts’ in this context.”
But Jesus isn’t “all sorts” of people, and the Bible doesn’t condone “all sorts” of behavior as intrinsic to a person’s identity.
Rather, Jesus is the perfect, holy Son of God who invites all people to come to Him for forgiveness from any sin.
Of any man who ever lived, Jesus is unique because in Him was no sin. Even the unsaved Pontius Pilate declared, “I find no fault in this man.”
Luke 23:4 KJV 1900
4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
Only the eternal God manifested in the flesh could perfectly resist temptation and live a sinless life on earth.
And having accomplished this, Jesus was able to fulfill His mission in coming—to provide redemption for us.

2. The Redemption through Christ

Why did Jesus, the eternal God, come and manifest Himself in the flesh? Because His purpose was to bring us salvation.
Reconciliation between man and God did not come by man’s initiative. And it certainly didn’t come by man’s efforts.
Jesus—conceived within the virgin Mary’s womb—did not come of man’s bloodlines. Salvation is only of God.
John 1:13 KJV 1900
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
The apostle John restated a similar truth in his first epistle.
1 John 4:9–10 KJV 1900
9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
How did Jesus bring this redemption?

A. His Sacrifice

Jesus came to be a sacrifice for our sin. His very purpose in coming was to seek and save those who are lost.
Luke 19:10 KJV 1900
10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Our salvation has never depended upon any amount of sacrifice we may make for God.
In fact, the Bible says that we were like lost sheep, and Jesus came to rescue us. Jesus’ sacrifice was a free gift to us, but the payment came at a great cost to Him.
Romans 5:8 KJV 1900
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Having made this substitutionary atonement for our sin, Jesus freely offers eternal life to all who will turn from their own works and trust in Him.
John 14:6 KJV 1900
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Acts 4:12 KJV 1900
12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The atonement of our sins is complete through Jesus, and redemption is offered solely through His sacrifice.

B. His Resurrection

A Dead Jesus Christ does nobody any good. Neither does a Jesus still hanging on a cross!!
A young man came to his boss and asked for the day off to attend his grandmother’s funeral. He was given permission, and didn’t show up to work that day. The next day, however, his boss approached him and asked if he believed in the resurrection. When he answered in the affirmative, the boss replied, “That’s interesting. Because after you left work yesterday, your grandmother came to visit you.”
The resurrection of Jesus ultimately provided the resounding proof of His deity. Not only had He raised others from the dead, but He raised Himself from the dead.
Quote: “The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity…. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is absolute truth.”—Henry Morris
The apostle Paul wrote something similar regarding the resurrection of Christ as the defining truth of the Christian hope.
Romans 1:4 KJV 1900
4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
1 Corinthians 15:17 KJV 1900
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
1 Corinthians 15:19 KJV 1900
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the bedrock of the Christian faith. And it is the most spectacular event in all of human history. How do we know that it is true?
The Bible presents at least three proofs, and these have corroborated with historical evidence as well.

A guarded tomb

There are those who suggest that Jesus didn’t rise from the dead at all but that His disciples came and stole His body so it would appear that He had risen.
This argument is easily dismissed by the actions of Jesus’ enemies, the chief priests and Pharisees.
First, they asked for the tomb to be guarded with Roman soldiers, and their request was granted.
Matthew 27:65–66 KJV 1900
65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can. 66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
When Jesus’ body was gone and the guards told the chief priests that He had risen from the dead, the chief priests bribed the guards—and the guards’ superiors—to instead say that the guards had fallen asleep on the job.
Matthew 28:12–15 KJV 1900
12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. 14 And if this come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
The Roman punishment for a soldier who fell asleep at his post was death. The fact that the soldiers were not executed is itself a tell-tale sign that bribes were involved.

An empty tomb

Then there is the empty tomb itself. If Jesus’ body had still been in the tomb, the guards would not have had to give a reason for why it was empty.
Additionally, the gospels record that several people—all expecting to find Jesus in the tomb—instead found the tomb empty.
First, a group of women came to anoint Jesus’ body, but they found an empty tomb and an angel who invited them to look inside.
Matthew 28:6 KJV 1900
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
The women went back and invited Peter and John to come see as well. (See Mark 16:1–6 and John 20:1–7).

Living eye witnesses

After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples on multiple occasions over the next forty days. He also appeared to a group of over five hundred people. At the time when Paul recorded this, the majority of those people were still alive.
If Jesus had not, in fact, appeared to them after His resurrection, it would have been very easy for them to simply speak up and say so.
1 Corinthians 15:5–8 KJV 1900
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
The story is told of an African Muslim who became a Christian. When his friends asked why he had become a Christian, he responded with a comparison he knew they would understand: “Well, it’s like this. Suppose you were going down the road and suddenly the road forked in two directions, and you didn’t know which way to go. There were two men at the fork, but one was dead and one was alive. Who would you ask which way to go?”
The resurrection of Jesus Christ not only provides undeniable evidence of His deity, but it also confirms to us that He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6).

3. The Reunion with Christ

Jesus is more than a historical figure; He is our living God whom we look forward to seeing.
Just before Jesus was crucified, He promised His disciples that He would come again.
John 14:1–3 KJV 1900
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
After Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, angels told the disciples that He will return “in like manner.” In other words, Jesus will return physically and bodily to Earth.
Acts 1:10–11 KJV 1900
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
This coming event gives us great hope.

A. The Hope of His Coming

We know that Christians who die before Christ’s coming are instantly in the presence of the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV 1900
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Even so, there is coming a time when all Christians at once are reunited with Christ at His return. This will happen at the Rapture. Following the Rapture, there will be the Second Coming of Christ. These are two separate events separated by seven years.

The Rapture of the church saints

Jesus promised that He would come for His bride—the church—in what we have come to know as the Rapture. Although the word rapture isn’t in the Bible, the event is. The word means “a catching up.” Paul speaks of this event and explains its sequence.
1 Thessalonians 4:16–17 KJV 1900
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Second Coming with the saints

The Second Coming is another event described in Scripture, but it is different from the rapture. At the rapture, Jesus appears in Heaven and calls for His saints. At the Second Coming, He returns to Earth with His saints.
Revelation 19:11 KJV 1900
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Revelation 19:13–14 KJV 1900
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Revelation 19:15–16 KJV 1900
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
Jesus’ Second Coming is when He will defeat the armies of the Antichrist and set up a literal millennial kingdom and reign for one thousand years on Earth.
Slide Library of Congress
Held within the sculpture on a wall in the United States Library of Congress are gilded words from a Tennyson poem: “One God, one law, one element, and one far-off divine event to which the whole creation moves.”7
What “divine event” Tennyson may have been referring to is unknown. But millions of Christians through the ages have looked for a “divine event to which the whole creation moves”—the return of Christ.

B. The Hope of Eternal Life

Accompanying the hope of Christ’s coming is our hope of eternal life. Neither of these hopes is shaky—the way we might “hope” for good weather tomorrow.
Rather, this “hope” is speaking of how our confidence in the reality of God’s promises gives hope to our hearts.
Titus 1:2 KJV 1900
2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
God has promised eternal life for all who have believed on Christ for salvation. And this promise gives us hope.
1 John 5:11–13 KJV 1900
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
If you have believed on the name of the Son of God, He has given you eternal life that will never be taken from you.
And if you have not believed on Him, He invites you to do so today.


As we’ve studied the deity of Jesus, it is clear that this truth matters in every aspect of our lives. If Jesus is not God, Christianity is empty and the Bible is optional. But if Jesus is God, knowing Him and following Him is the only way to lasting fulfillment and eternal joy. Scripture gives many descriptions of Jesus.
What do you think of Jesus Christ? Who is he? According to Christianity this is the most important question you or anyone else will ever have to face. It is important because it is inescapable—you will have to answer it sooner or later, in this world or in the world to come—and because the quality of your life here and your eternal destiny depend upon your answer. Who is Jesus Christ? If he was only a man, then you can safely forget him. If he is God, as he claimed to be, and as all Christians believe, then you should yield your life to him. You should worship and serve him faithfully
