The TRUE Christ/Messiah of the Holy Scriptures

 













Today more than ever, people have a hazy and fuzzy (distorted) view of who the Savior of the World, God’s Son Jesus Christ, really is. Various opinions regarding Jesus may have been formed from a religious upbringing or education, personal experiences, etc. Whenever you ask someone who Jesus is, He will usually sound a lot like the person who is describing Him to you. They say, “He was a great teacher,” or “He was a Good Man,” or “He died on the cross,” etc. You see, even in Jesus day there were many who were confused and troubled about who God’s Messiah to the world was. When Jesus entered into Jerusalem on the Sunday before the Great Passover feast (our Palm Sunday), multitudes upon multitudes welcomed Him (Matt. 21:9). After three days, however, the same multitudes cried, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him! (Matt 27:11-26; Luke 23:18-24)” How could this be? It was because the multitudes had their own perception and personal view of who Jesus was, one that was not rooted in reality or in the truth of Holy Scripture.

Whenever you ask someone who Jesus is, He will usually sound a lot like the person who is describing Him to you.

The big question at hand is this, “Who really was Jesus?” Is it important to know God’s Christ - the Christ of Holy Scripture - and His teachings of salvation for humanity? My friend, the answer to this literal life and death question is: it surely is. It is a matter of Eternal Life or Eternal Death!

The Christ of the Holy Scriptures









God’s Christ/ Messiah Fulfilled all of God’s Word and Promises and Claimed to be the Center of the Scriptures. (Matt. 5:17; 26:54, 56; Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39, 46; Acts 3:18; 28:23; Heb. 10:7)





The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
