Truths about Jesus

Jesus is God

 I and the Father are one.”

 Again his Jewish opponents picked up stones to stone him, 32 but Jesus said to them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?”
“We are not stoning you for any good work,” they replied, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” John 10:30-33

 Jesus Became a Man

 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death —even death on a cross! Philippians 2:5-8

 Jesus has Two Natures: Divine and Human

 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
1 Timothy 2:5

 Jesus was Sinless

 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” 1 Peter 2:22

 Jesus is the Only Way to God

 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Jesus Died for all of Our Sins

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2

Jesus’ Sacrifice was a Substitution, for Us

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

Jesus Rose from the Dead in His Physical Body

Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.”

They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body. John 2:19-21

Jesus will Return Visibly to Earth

“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11

Christians will be Raised from the Dead when Jesus Returns

There will be a Rapture (Being Caught up into the Clouds with Jesus)

For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17
