Who Was Jesus Christ Anyway?

This is one of the most thought about and asked questions OF ALL TIME! So, Who Was Jesus Christ Anyway? Thank you for visiting www.WhoWasJesusChrist.net I hope to help you in your search for the true identity of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Well, who do people say Jesus Christ was? Muslims believe that he was a Prophet. They say that he was a great and holy man and a great teacher of God. Mormons believe that Jesus is just another created being. He was created by God up in Heaven before God sent him down to Earth. He is the brother of Satan. Jehovah Witnesses believe that Jesus Christ was Michael the Archangel in the flesh. He is not God in the flesh. Bible believing Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the unique Son of God and God in the flesh. They say that He died on the Cross for their sins as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. They believe that He rose again from the grave on the third day and is their Savior. Which one is right? Let’s find out!

Well, I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that all religions except for Christianity are wrong. I know, that sounds intolerant, insensitive and politically incorrect. But it's the truth. Jesus Christ was and still is the Son of God. He was God in the flesh. He is part of the Trinity, which is One God in Three Persons. Go to our Trinity Page for more on the Trinity, one of the most misunderstood doctrines of all time. If Jesus wasn't God in the flesh, if He wasn't perfect and holy as He claimed, then we are ALL still in BIG TROUBLE. The Message of Christianity, of the Bible, says that you must turn from your sins and put your faith in Jesus Christ in order to be saved. It really is that simple. You may say, "So, you're telling me that I'm going to go to Hell if I don't believe in Jesus?!" That is kind of what I am saying. And YES, Hell IS a place of eternal fire and torment where people will spend ALL eternity. It is not a place of the dead. It is not a place of soul sleep. And it is not a place where the wicked will ultimately be destroyed someday. It is a place of eternal, conscious punishment forever. But not believing in Jesus is only the secondary reason why you'll go to Hell.

The primary reason is because you have broken God's Law. It's kind of like this: If a man were to jump out of an airplane from 25,000 feet up and didn't have a parachute on, he would go SPLAT! But, the primary reason he would go SPLAT is not because he didn't put the parachute on. The primary reason he would go SPLAT is because he broke the Law of Gravity. He thought he could break that Law of Gravity and still live in the end. He was wrong and he was deceived. There are many people who think they can break God's Law, part of which is the Ten Commandments, and still be ok on the Day of Judgment. That's not true. Have you broken God's Law? Let’s take a look to see if you have. Have you ever lied? If you have that would make you a liar. Have you ever stolen? It doesn't matter how long ago or how small the item is. If you have, then you are a thief. Have you ever lusted after someone before? If you have, Jesus says you are an adulterer at heart. How are you doing so far? Have you broken those three of God’s Laws? If you have, the Bible says that the wages of sin is death and you will reap what you have sown, unless you put on the parachute which can save you from sure death.

That parachute is Jesus Christ. He lived a perfect, sinless life. His parachute has no holes in it whatsoever. He died to save us from our sins, from death, from Hell and ultimately from the Wrath of God. There are many people who put on a different kind of parachute though. It is the parachute of self-righteousness. They think they are a good person and that their "goodness" is going to save them on the Day of Judgment. Or maybe they think "good works" or "repentance" will save them on the Day of Judgment. Not true. The parachute of self-righteousness is a parachute that is full of holes. And the end result for someone who trusts in the parachute of self-righteousness will be the same as the person who has no parachute at all. They will go SPLAT. God's Word makes it clear that there is no one good, not even one. The Bible says that even our "righteous deeds" are as "filthy rags" in His site. The Hebrew word that is translated as "filthy rags" in that verse is the same Hebrew word used for a woman's menstrual pad. Our "good deeds" will NOT earn us favor with God nor will it earn us entrance into Heaven. God's definition of GOOD is moral perfection. In fact, Jesus said that there is only one who is good and that is God. So, we need someone who is perfect, someone who has no holes in their character or purity to save us from sure death and from the Wrath of God.

And there is only one name under Heaven given among men by which we can be saved: His name is Jesus. Jesus said, "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE and NO MAN can come to the Father BUT BY ME." It's true and if you don't believe it then you are calling Jesus a liar. Muhammad can't save you, Buddha can't save you, Gandhi can't save you, Mormonism can't save you, Jehovah False-Witness’s can't save you, Hinduism can't save you and Un-Christian Scientology can't save you. The only one who can save you is JESUS CHRIST. You see, every other religion is a works-based religion. And as we have already established, your "good works" can't save you. No matter how many good works you do, they won't make up for the times you have broken God's Law. Imagine there was a man who committed murder here on Earth and didn't get caught until ten years later. During those ten years that he hadn’t been caught yet, he did all kinds of good things and made a change for the better. Should he escape punishment for the murder he committed because of his good works and change in life? Of course not! He needs to be punished for his crimes. The good deeds that he has done will not help him escape the punishment he deserves. And we are no different. If you are honest with yourself, you will be willing to admit that you have broken God's Law many times (just like me). If you are like me, you have probably broken God's Law more times than you can count! And because we have broken His Law, we deserve to be punished by Him. But because of God's Great Love for us, He sent Jesus. God's Law requires that either we be punished for our sins or a perfect, sinless person shed His Blood instead. Jesus is the only one who has or ever will qualify for that! Jesus shed His blood on the Cross for you and me. Jesus did his part by shedding His perfect blood. Your part is to Repent of your sins and Trust in Him. BUT, you MUST Trust in the right Jesus! Otherwise you haven't Truly Repented! Are you trusting in the Jesus of the Bible? If not, then you are still in your sins! You are STILL GUILTY of IDOLATRY! Repent of ALL your sins and Trust in the RIGHT Jesus today and God will save you. He will grant you eternal life, not because you earned it, deserve it or because you are a good person, but because He wants to give you eternal life as a free gift. The Bible says that God will make you Born Again. He will give you a New Heart and New Desires. Do it today!

  1. Greetings

    The bad news is that all religions except for Christianity are wrong.


    However, there is some further bad news


    The bible says nothing about:
    God in the flesh, the Trinity, One God in Three Persons.

    The good news however, is the Bible does indeed contain the truths concerning
    the ONE GOD, the Father,
    and His Son, the man Christ Jesus.


    Therefore, to begin with,
    I recommend this video:
    The Human Jesus

    Take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you in your quest for truth.

  2. For starters, thank you for replying to my post!

    Next, I must say that I disagree with you. The Bible DOES in fact say a lot about the trinity (which is one God in three persons) and Jesus being God in the Flesh.
    In Genesis 1:26 the Bible says:
    “And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”

    The words “us” and “our” have are in the plural sense – meaning more than one person.

    In John 1:1 the Bible says:
    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God.

    This verse, of course, is talking about Jesus. Hmmm.... “THE SAME WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD” – I repeat, “Let US make man in OUR image.”

    Later on, in John 10:30, Jesus declared Himself to be God. He stated: “I and my Father are one.”

    In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus asked His disciples who men said that He was. They answered. Next Jesus wanted to know who His disciples thought He was:
    Mark 8:28, 29 --
    “And they answered, John the Baptist: but some say, Elias; and others, One of the prophets.
    And he saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Peter answereth and saith unto him, Thou art the Christ.”

    And if that isn’t enough evidence, God felt the need to reiterate it again in Colossians 2:9. Speaking of Jesus, He had the inspired writer pen these words:
    “For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”

    That is plenty enough evidence for me.

    Furthermore, even Satan himself realized who Jesus was because even he tried to get Jesus to fall. Satan tempted Him to prove who He really is – but He is God; therefore, He needs not prove who He is. Besides, Satan was there in the beginning when the world was created (he was Lucifer – the most beautiful angel created, until he decided He was going to try to set himself up as God. It was at that point that another world was created: Hell. And Satan and all the angels that followed him were cast into it).
    Let’s read the entire account....

    Luke 4:1-13
    1. And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
    2. Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
    3. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.
    4. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
    5. And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
    6. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
    7. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.
    8. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
    9. And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
    10. For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
    11. And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    12. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
    13. And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

    I find it interesting that when Satan tempted Jesus, he called Him the “Son of God”, but when Jesus answered Satan’s temptation He called himself the “Lord thy God”. Jesus knew who He really was. I’m so glad I know who He is.
    Besides, Satan already knew who Jesus was. This whole temptation episode that he tried to pull was not so Jesus could “prove” who He really was – that was only a cover-up. The real reason was that Satan was trying to get Jesus to sin. Had Jesus sinned, then He would no longer be able to be the perfect, sinless sacrifice and save all mankind from their sins, causing the battle between Heaven and Hell complete – Hell would have one. All hope would have been lost. Mankind would have been doomed.

    Thirdly, I am not on a quest for truth. I have found it already – in my Savior, and in His Word. I believe God.

  3. Greetings

    The aforementioned video,
    The Human Jesus
    deals with practically all the verses/points you posted.
    Therefore, please take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you
    to reconsider "The Trinity"

    And BTW ...
    a) Mark 8.39 ... Thou art the Christ

    Amen! That's who Jesus is.
    Peter did not say "thou art Almighty GOD."
    Rather Peter said:

    (Luke 9:20) He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said,
    The Christ of God.
    (Mat 16:16) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ,
    the Son of the living God.

    There is only ONE Living GOD,
    and that's the Father!!
    [1 Cor 8.4,6]

    Hence Matt 16.17

    b) IMHO, you missed the point of Luke 4:12,8.
    The "LORD thy GOD" is the ONE GOD, the Father!

    Jesus was quoting the Scriptures
    i.e. Deut 6.16,13.

    Satan was tempting Jesus to jump from the pinnacle in order to force the hand of GOD to save Jesus, His Son, from hitting the ground/rocks; according to Satan's understanding of Psalm 91.11-12.

    In other words, Satan was tempting Jesus by using GOD's words, to jump, and put GOD to the test in order to save him!!
    Jesus refuted this temptation by quoting Deut 6.16, you shall not put YAHWEH your GOD to the test!!
    Likewise, one should solely fear & serve GOD Almighty
    [Luke 4.8, Deut 6.13].

    The "LORD thy GOD" is the GOD and Father
    of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    [John 20.17, Rom 15.6, 2 Cor 11.31,
    Eph 1.3,17; Col 1.3, 1 Pet 1.3]
    That's who Jesus was referring to!!

    Besides, if Jesus were Almighty GOD,
    the temptations and Satan's attempt to tempt Christ would be meaningless!!!
    Almighty GOD cannot be tempted!!!
    (James 1:13) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:
    for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

    Hence another clear indicator that Jesus the Christ, the Son of GOD, is not Almighty GOD.

    Satan was tempting the Son of GOD
    Not Almighty GOD!!

    Again, please watch the video.

  4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
    Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
    Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
    God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity.

    Holy, holy, holy! All saints adore thee,
    casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
    cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
    which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

    Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee,
    though the sinful human eye thy glory may not see,
    only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
    perfect in power, in love, and purity.

    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
    All thy works shall praise thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
    Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
    God in three Persons, blessèd Trinity.


    I can assur you, that no amount of videos, over-analyzing of Scripture, and pleading will change my mind on this matter.

    True, there is but one God - yet he has three person --- just as we as humans were made in his image... we are one person, but have 3 parts: our body, our soul, and our spirit.

    You cannot and will not persuade me take your viewpoints, and I can see that you will not be pursuaded to take my viewpoints.

    Because man fell in the beginning because of pride and sin, we were doomed to Hell without hope. BUT God promised Adam that He would provide a sacrifice. Praise God He did. However, that sacrifice had to be perfect, and only God is perfect. The Bible says in Philippians 2:5-11 --

    [5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
    [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
    [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
    [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
    [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
    [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
    [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    - He was in the form of God (meaning He was God)
    - He was equal with God (God = God)
    - He took on the form of a servant (man)
    - was made in the likeness of man (Jesus = man)
    - humbled Himself unto the death of the cross (Jesus = Sacrifice)
    - God exalted Him, and every knee should bow to Him (Exodus 3:20 "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." - God cannot contradict Himself, therefore if every knee is to bow to Jesus, He is God)
    - every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (King David used that same word "LORD" to refer to God, the Father -- and God used it to refer to God, the Son (God, the Father = God, the Son)

    You see, Jesus is God.
    sometimes we as humans cannot understand the things of God because our human minds cannot comprehend such higher things. Just as the human mind cannot comprehend God always being, and that eternity has no ending - such thoughts are too great for humanity to comprehend. That's where faith comes in; that's where trust comes in. I trust the truth of His Word.
