Jesus. Just the mention of His name either offends or brings peace. Who is He, this one who lived a short 33 years on the earth and yet impacted this world more than any other? A recent Time Magazine poll asked, which person had the most impact person of the 20th century. Overwhelmingly the people voted for Jesus. It became so lopsided that Time had to exclude His name putting in the stipulation that the poll concerned only those who lived in the 20th century. He has affected this world so much that history is really His story. His name has become a curse on he lips of many and yet at the same time many speak blessings in His name. Some will do everything to stamp out His name and yet others are willing to die rather than renounce Him as their Savior. Some say He was a good man who wanted to bring peace. Others say he was a madman or meant to con people.
Today we have such a wide opinion about who He is. The Mormons say He and satan are brothers and were born on another world. The Jehovah’s witnesses say He is the Arch Angel Michael. The Muslims say He was a prophet of Allah. Some say he was a wise man like Buddha or Confucius. Some groups even say He was an alien from another world. Jesus Himself even asked the question of His disciples. In the Bible in Matthew 16:13-17 it says; "When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" "Well," they replied, "some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets."Then He asked them, "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." Jesus replied, "You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being."
Whoever you are, you can’t take a middle ground on who He is. He is either a blessing to you or a curse. He is either your Savior or just another man. Who Jesus is, is spiritually discerned but there are certain truths and facts that we will investigate that will reveal That He was just who He said He was.
