God The Son
Jesus was there in the beginning. (Genesis 1:26, 11:7, Isaiah 48:16, John 1:1-5) Jesus has always existed. Jesus was present with God before the beginning. He worked with God to create everything that was created.
Jesus was foretold of in Old Testament scripture. (Isaiah 7:10-15, Micah 5:2-5) God in His infinite wisdom knew that His people needed a savior. Sin held His people captives and He had to provide a way of escape from sin and a bridge to
Himself. The foretelling of the coming messiah provided hope and encouragement for His people.
Jesus was sent by God. (John 3:16) God, because of His love for human beings, sent His Son to serve as the ultimate sacrifice to cleanse our sins. God sent His Very Best to suffer and die in our place so all that believe in Jesus and accept Him as Lord and Savior would receive eternal life.
Jesus was born of a woman. (Luke 2:1-7) Jesus entered this earth, in His human form, just as every man has since Eve gave birth to Cain, He was born of a woman. Mary gave birth to Jesus in a barn and used an animal feeding trough for His bed.
Jesus was an example for all Christians. (Luke 2:49-52, Matthew 3:13-17, 4:1-1, 1Mark 6:30-43, Luke 23:34, John 19:26-27) Jesus was obedient to His parents, baptized, resisted temptation from Satan, had compassion for others, made provisions for them, loved His enemies and cared for His family. These are just a few areas where we find Jesus setting the example. A search of the scripture will reveal Jesus setting the example or teaching the proper manner to live as Christians.
Jesus died. (Matthew 27:45-56, Luke 23:44-49, John 19:28-30) Jesus died. He did not faint. He died. He did not lapse into a coma. He died. There is no refuting this fact. Everyone, on the day of His death, both enemies and loved
ones all agreed that Jesus died.
Jesus was buried. (Matthew 27:57-60, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:38-42) After Jesus died His body was taken by Joseph of Arimathea and place in a tomb that Joseph had purchased for himself. A stone was placed across the
opening of the tomb and Pilate sent soldiers to guard the tomb.
Jesus was resurrected. (Matthew 28: 1-10, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-2, John 20:1-10) Death nor the grave had the power to hold Jesus captive. He overcame them both for our sake.
Jesus ascended to Heaven. (Act 1:4-11) Jesus returned to His Father and now after having saved us intercedes on our behalf to God.
