Who Is This Jesus?

Who is Jesus? Who is this person that divides BC from AD, that even evolutionist Charles Darwin said transformed savages in the places he travelled to, this person who made demons tremble, who is spoken of so highly in religious books that oppose His doctrine, this person who has influenced some of the greatest music, the greatest architecture and the greatest paintings to name a few, this person that Mahatma Gandhi, a famous Hindu said gave the answer to the problems of the world in the “Sermon on the Mount” in Matt. 5 onwards. This question is so important that Jesus Himself asked His disciples in Matt. 16:13 “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?”

What do the Jehovah Witnesses say?

Who is Jesus? The Jehovah Witnesses say He is a god (John 1:1). Then despite themselves they admit that He is “Mighty God” in Isa. 9:6, a term they apply to Almighty God Jehovah in Jer. 32:18! Then in Rev. 1 and 22 they plainly say that the One who died and is coming again who we know to be Jesus, the Alpha and Omega is Jehovah God. (See Rev. 1:8, 13; Rev. 2:8; Rev. 22:13,16).

What do the Muslims say?

Who is Jesus? The Muslims say that He was just one of God’s prophets. Yet despite themselves they call him “a faultless son” and “the Messiah.”

In the Koran the angel tells Mary about the baby Jesus that she is going to have saying:

“I am a messenger of the Lord, that I may bestow on thee a faultless boy” and goes on to call Him “a revelation to mankind and a mercy from us.” (Sura Maryam 19:19-21). Note that not even Mohammed is called “faultless” but the fact that Muhammed had sins is pointed out in the Koran for it refers to Mohammed’s “former and thy latter sins.” See Sura Al-Fath 48:2; Sura Ghafir 40:45; Sura Muhammad 47:19.

In Sura (Chapter) 3 we are told “(And remember) when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in the world and the Hereafter.” (Sura al Imran 3:44). In Sura al-Ma’ida 5:17, 72 He is again and again called the Messiah, the Son of Mary.

In Sura al Imran 3:49 the Koran says that Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead! Furthermore Abu al-Su`ud Muhammad Ibn Muhammad al-Ahmadi’s Commentary on the meeting of Mary and her cousin Elizabeth who was pregnant, having John the Baptist in her womb says “The mother of Yahya (John) meeting the mother of Isa (Jesus) asked, ‘Mary, have you felt my pregnancy?’ Mary answered, ‘I too am pregnant.’ She (John’s mother) then said, ‘I find that what is in my belly worships what is in your belly.’ From here the above utterance of God ’supporting a word from God’ comes clear. (Abu al-Su`ud Muhammad Ibn Muhammad al-Ahmadi’s Commentary, page 233).

What did the demons and His enemies say?

Who is Jesus? In the Bible even the demons admitted that He was at least the Son of God (Matt. 8:29; Luke 8:28). One demon-possessed man who was filled with so many demons that he was called “Legion”, who no man could restrain and who broke through chains, saw Jesus and despite the fact that he was possessed he fell down and worshipped Jesus. See Mark 5:6,7. No wonder we are told that Jesus is higher than any principality and power. Even the demons recognize that He is God.

What did Jesus’ other enemies say?

Pilate and the Wise Men from the east called Him the King of the Jews (Matt. 2:1,2; Matt. 27:37). Pilate was afraid to condemn Him to die so he sent Him to Pilate’s own enemy Herod. Herod was afraid to condemn Him to die to so he sent Jesus back to Pilate! His enemies, the Pharisees called Him Master if even in pretense (Matt. 12:38; Luke 19:39). Despite themselves we are told that after Jesus’ ascension many of them were converted. Acts 6:7 says “And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.” When they crucified Him even the Roman centurion at the cross said “Truly this was the Son of God.” (Matt. 27:54). Who was it that buried Jesus after the crucifixion? – two Pharisees – Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus, in Joseph of Arimathea’s own new tomb.

What did His disciples call Him?

Peter called Him “the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matt. 16:16) But ironically it was doubting Thomas who uttered words that gave a fuller picture calling Him “My Lord and my God” (John 20:28).

Who is Jesus? One writer brilliantly says:

“The race from which Jesus came was the most hated and the most persecuted in the world, and the most bigoted and provincial. Yet He became the one universal Man, uniting Orient and Occident, appealing equally to the East and to the West.

“Socrates taught for forty years, Plato for fifty, Aristotle for forty, and Jesus for only three; yet those three years infinitely transcend in influence the combined one hundred and thirty years that Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, the three greatest men of all antiquity, taught.” “He composed no music, still Haydn, Handel, Beethoven, Bach, and Mendelssohn reached their highest perfection of melody in the hymns, symphonies, and oratorios written in His praise.” You really need to read the full page so sublimely put at http://www.worldincrisis.org/David%20Dare/David-Dare-15.htm

An angel refused worship from the apostle John saying:

Rev. 19:10 “…. See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God ….”

This by itself proves that Jesus was God for He received worship that only God should receive. See Matt. 8:2; 9:18; 14:33; 15:25; 18:26; 20:20; 28:9;, 17; Mark 5:6; Luke 24:52; John 9:38 etc.

Let me quote the words of C.S.Lewis in “Mere Christianity”:

“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 [merely] 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 [merely] a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. – Mere Christianity, pages 40-41.”

Dear reader, “Who is Jesus to you?”

Acts 1:11 adds “… 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 same Jesus is coming back for the saved. Are you ready?
