Christ: Who? What? Why?
He is...unquestionably...the most famous man who ever walked the earth. Correspondingly...he is the most misunderstood.
Some feel Jesus was a man who became God. Others feel he was God dwelling within a man. Still others believe Jesus was God simply appearing as a man. Some think Jesus to be part God and part man. Still others consider him fully God and fully man. Those views are not the same!
Mistakes about Jesus' person inevitably lead to mistakes about his purpose. Was Jesus' mission to show us how to live and love? Was it to show us how to face adversity with courage and grace? Or was it something greater than that?
A key incident in Jesus' ministry was his asking of a leading question: "Why do people say the Son of Man is?" There is and can be only one correct answer to the question, "Who is Jesus?" That answer cannot be discovered by human reason, scholarship, or logic. Your answer to this question determines your approach to all the other teachings of Scripture. Join us each as we answer that question through the lens of what Scripture reveals to us about Christ.

"Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and correctly handles the word of truth." - 2 Timothy 2:15
