Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the most remarkable man who ever lived. He is the centrepiece of our civilisation. After all, we call what happened before him 'BC' and what happened after him 'AD'.
Jesus is God. Christians believe that God reveals himself in three persons - Father, Son & Holy Spirit. We call God the Holy Trinity. Jesus is normally referred to as the Son of God in order to distinguish him from the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Some people think Jesus is just a good religious teacher, however that suggestion doesn't fit with the facts. Jesus claimed to be God. He assumed the authority to forgive sins. He said that one day he would judge the world and that what would matter then would be how we had responded to him in this life.
C.S. Lewis pointed out that a man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be insane or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either Jesus was and is the Son of God or else he was insane or evil but let us not come up with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
