No one is more loved or hated than Jesus. This is not surprising, since he’s the most famous person in all of human history. More songs have been sung to him, artwork created of him, and books written about him than anyone who’s ever lived. Even our calendar is based off his life, dividing time before and after him. Naturally, someone this important stirs up quite a lot of controversy
And a lot of people have an idea of who Jesus is. They may get this idea from TV or movies, maybe from past church experience and Sunday School stories, from history books, or maybe from just hearsay. But just because we have ideas of who Jesus is doesn’t mean we actually know Jesus. At C3 Church Thirroul, we’re all about Jesus—and the only way to get to know Jesus is to understand what the Bible says about him, which includes what he said about himself.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born a man but had all the authority of God His Father. His authority was demonstrated through his teaching, in healing, power over nature and evil spirits (physical and spiritual realms), death, humanity and through the forgiveness of sins. He is part of the Godhead, the Holy Trinity, consisting of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three persons make up the Godhead. He was the visible manifestation of the otherwise invisible God.
