Who Is Jesus? – Why Was Jesus Born? by Stanley T. Crawford
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are Christ, Son of living God.” (Matthew 16:16)
And Jesus said to them, “I am bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)
For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:5 & 6)
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than angels, for suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by grace of God, might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:9)
As we read Bible, we see several names that are used to describe Jesus Christ. Each name reflects an important aspect of Christ’s character. Let us take a look at some of these names.
Jesus is Lamb of God. Jesus took away sin of world by sacrificing himself (John 1:29, I Timothy 2:5 & 6). He was perfect and without fault. These qualities allowed Jesus to be ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Even so, each man and woman must make choice to accept God through Christ, or reject him. It should be remembered, Jesus seldom forces himself on any man or woman.
