Jesus is Who He Said He Was

Gothic-cross-pray-faith

I find it crazy.  There are still people who are calling Jesus a "good teacher," all the while ignoring the fact He claimed He was God. It's C.S. Lewis' oldest argument for Liar, Lunatic, or Lord, but let's be honest.  He either was who He said He was, or He's not.

Matthew gives us another good look into the identity of this Jesus figure.  He writes,

"Finally two came forward and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' "Then
the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Are you not going to
answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against
you?" But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ,the Son of God." "Yes,
it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the
future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the
Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." Matthew 26:60-64

Look, I'm not trying to invent something here.  I'm just reading what Matthew wrote about Jesus' trial.  Jesus admitted that He was the Christ, the Son of God.  

So our conversation must go to either…

A.  Jesus was a liar
B.  Jesus didn't say this
C.  Matthew wrote it wrong
D.  Jesus was actually the Son of God

My life is one that will always come to an option D conclusion.  His life, His teachings, and His sacrifice have changed the course of all humanity.  The beauty His life and subsequent Resurrection brings to the whole of the story of the Kingdom of God are unmatched by any other time.  It is beyond my comprehension why there are those who continue to try and mingle Jesus' teachings and disregard His own claims of Himself.

As for me and my house, we are committed to understanding God's message through His Son Jesus. 

Thank you God for such a clear picture of your revelation.  May we approach you with all humility of heart to worship you in all manner of truth.

  1. Jesus presented a view of God as more lovingly parental, merciful, and more forgiving, and the growth of a belief in a blissful afterlife and in the resurrection of the dead.
    The Church Fathers of the early centuries further defined Jesus’ identity as fully God. Ancient and medieval thinkers, such as Augustine of Hippo, further defined Jesus’ divine and human natures. Enlightenment and Reformation theologians concerned themselves less with defining Jesus’ identity as with understanding his work in redemption.

  2. jesus is the only god. no one can disagree with it. every one will get to know it one day. the day whn the world ends or the day whn they leave this world. god bless u

  3. Jesus was and is God in flesh!! Man was made in the image of GOD!! And Jesus was that image….the pure..the innocent..the lover of all..and the savior of man kind. Our Lord and King in heaven..and the reason why our spiritual beings have a chance in this life!!
