Who was Jesus Christ? – If you are offended that I posed the question in the past-tense – you can be rest assured that what Jesus Christ was He is, and what He is He was. So here is the logic, Colossians 1:16 states, “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things were created through him and for him”; and in Hebrews 13:8 it mentions that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”. Therefore, there are no impossibilities of time and space for what Jesus Christ was He is, and what He is, He was. In John 1:1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”.
Therefore, if Jesus Christ is the way, truth and the life then ultimately the fate and destination of every living and those dead all hang upon the answer to this question, “Who was Jesus Christ?”. This question is by no means a new one – for the Old and New Testaments provide the truth spoken by the Prophets and the Apostles they all pointed to the paths of the two roads, that being the broad and the narrow.
Thus, how we answer the question would also reflects our nature. In John 8:44 it states, “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
“Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:30-31). The Apostle John wrote his gospel with the expressed intention of convincing his readers to believe in Jesus Christ and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God
