Let’s Talk About Jesus, the Son of God

Who is Jesus Christ?

Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God. He had no human father, but was conceived when the power of God, called the Holy Spirit, worked a miracle on his mother, who was a virgin. (See Luke 1:3235Matthew 1:20-25Matthew 3:17John 1:49John 10:36).

He was, nevertheless, a human being who grew up, hungered, thirsted, wept, suffered and died like other human beings. (See Hebrews 2:11Luke 2:52Isaiah 53:3John 11:35John 19:33).

What was the work of Jesus, the Son of God?

  1. To reveal his Father, Almighty God, to the world in a way that men could understand. (See John 1:18John 12:45John 14:9John 17:626).
  2. To show the glorious qualities of his Father — holiness, righteousness and love. (See John 1:14-41Romans 3:24-26).
  3. To show to men the full meaning of Christian service and obedience. (See Luke 22:42John 5:308:29).
  4. To preach the gospel. (See Luke 4:189:6; and 20:1).
  5. To die for us. (See John 10:1115Acts 2:23).
  6. To bring us back to God. (See Ephesians 2:16Romans 5:10John 14:6).
