Bible Basics - Jesus Christ, the Son of God

1. Jesus' Father, God, is the Eternal Spirit and Creator:

A. God has always existed and always will:

Exo.3:14 God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM
Psa.90:2 From everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God
Psa.102:24b-27 The heavens...shall perish, but Thou shalt endure... Thou art the same, and Thy years shall have no end
Rev.1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending...which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty
(See also Isa.41:4 )

B. God is an immortal, invisible Spirit:

Jn.4:24 God is a Spirit: they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth
1Tim.1:17 Unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory (See also 2Cor.3:17a ; Heb.11:27 .)

C. He fills the entire universe:

2Chr.2:6 Who is able to build Him an house (temple), seeing the heaven and the Heaven of heavens cannot contain Him?
Psa.139:7-10 Whither shall I flee from Thy presence? Thou art there
Acts 7:48,49 Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool
Acts 17:24-29 In Him we live, and move, and have our being
(See also 1Ki.8:27 ; 2Chr.6:18 ; Isa.66:1 .)

D. He is the only true God:

Isa.43:10,11 I am He: before Me there was no God...neither shall there be after Me
Isa.44:6,8b I am the first, and the last; beside Me there is no God
Isa.45:21b,22 There is no God else beside Me...I am God, and there is none else

E. He created the world, the universe, and man:

Gen.1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth
Gen.1:26,27 God created man in His Own image...male and female
Gen.2:7 God formed man of the dust of the ground
(See also Isa.45:18 ; 48:13 ; Acts 17:24-26 .)

F. His understanding and power are infinite:

Psa.139:4 There is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, Thou knowest it altogether
Psa.147:5 Great is our Lord...His understanding is infinite
Isa.40:13-18 All nations before Him are as nothing...less than nothing, and vanity
Isa.40:28b There is no searching of His understanding
Rom.11:33 O the depth of...the wisdom and knowledge of God!

G. God is far beyond man's limited ability to understand:

Isa.55:8,9 As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are...My thoughts (higher) than your thoughts

H. God has a wonderful and beautiful plan for man:

1Cor.2:9 Neither have entered into heart of man, the [wonderful] things God hath prepared for them that love Him
(See also Isa.64:4 )

I. But sinful man is estranged from God:

Rom.3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
Eccl.7:20 Not a just man on earth, that...sinneth not
Isa.59:2 Your iniquities have separated between you and your God

J. God loved man and wanted him to have salvation:

Mat.18:14 It is not the will of (God) that one...should perish
2Pet.3:9 The Lord is...not willing that any should perish
(See also Ezk.18:23,32 ; 33:11 .)

2. Why God sent Jesus into the world:

A. God sent Jesus to show us a picture of what He is like:

Col.1:13b,15 His dear Son: Who is the image (perfect picture) of the invisible God
Heb.1:3 The brightness of His (God's) glory, and the express (clearly communicated) image of His person
2Cor.4:4b Christ, Who is the image of God

B. In knowing Jesus, we can know and understand God:

Jn.8:19 If ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father
Jn.14:7-9 He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father
(See also Jn.12:45 )

C. God showed us His love by sending Jesus to earth:

Jn.3:16 God so loved the world, that He gave His only...Son
Rom.5:8 God commendeth His love toward us, in that...Christ [came into the world and] died for us
1Jn.4:8b-10 The love of God...God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him
(See also Eph.2:4-7 )

D. Jesus showed us God's love by dying for us:

Jn.10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth His life for the sheep
Jn.15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

E. Jesus' death paid the price for our sins, and if we believe in Him, we receive God's gift of salvation:

1Tim.1:15 Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners
Lk.19:10 The Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost (See also Mat.9:13)
Jn.3:17 God sent not His Son into the world to condemn world; but that the world through Him might be saved
Rom.5:6-11 We were reconciled to God by the death of His Son
1Jn.3:5 He was manifested to take away our sins
1Jn.4:14 The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world
Rev.5:9b Thou wast slain, and redeemed us to God by Thy blood
(See also 1Cor.15:3 ; Eph.1:7 ; 2:12-18 ; 1Thes.5:9,10 ; Heb.9:12,14,26b,28 ; 10:12,14 ; 1Jn.4:9,10 ; Rev.1:5b .)

3. More reasons why God sent Jesus into the world:

A. To proclaim the truth:

Jn.18:37b For this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth

B. To destroy the power of the devil:

1Jn.3:8 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil
Heb.2:14b,15 That...He (Jesus) might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil
(See also 1Cor.15:54-57 )

C. To know our human weaknesses and to sympathise with us:

Heb.2:16-18 Made like unto His that He himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them
Heb.4:15 (He was) touched with the feeling of our infirmities: Lk.2:40 (growing up); Lk.4:2 (hunger); Lk.8:23 (need for sleep); Lk.9:58 (poverty); Jn.4:6,7 (weariness and thirst); Mat.26:37 (sorrow).

Jn.15:12 Love one another, as I have loved you
(See also Jn.15:17 ; 17:26 ; 1Jn.3:11 .)

C. Jesus' humility:

Phi.2:5-8 (He) made Himself of no reputation, and took...the form of a servant...humbled Himself
Mat.11:29 Learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart
Lk.22:27 I am among you as He that serveth
Jn.13:3-15 [Jesus' humble example of washing His disciples' feet]

D. He befriended and won sinners and outcasts of society:

Mat.9:9-13 Jesus sat at meat (ate with) many publicans and sinners Lk.7:36-48 [Jesus confounded a Pharisee by allowing a sinful woman to touch, wash and kiss His feet as He was eating]
Lk.19:2-10 [Jesus ate with and forgave a despised tax collector]
Lk.23:39-43 [Jesus forgave the penitent thief dying with Him]
Jn.8:1-11 [Jesus forgave the woman caught in adultery]

5. Jesus, the way to salvation:

A. Jesus is the only way to God:

Jn.1:29 The Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world
Jn.14:6 I am the way, the truth,and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me

(See also Jn.8:51 ; 10:7-9 ; 17:2,3 .)

F. Those that hate Jesus, also hate God:

Jn.15:23,24 He that hateth Me (Jesus) hateth My Father have they both seen and hated both Me and My Father

G. What rejecting Jesus means:

Jn.3:36b He that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him
Jn.3:18 He that believeth not (on Jesus) is condemned already
Jn.3:19,20 This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light

2Pet.1:16 We have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we [told of the] coming of Jesus, but were eyewitnesses
Lk.1:1,2 Those things which are most surely believed among us... they [told] us, which were...eyewitnesses

1Pet.3:22b Angels and authorities and powers...made subject to Him
