The Bible tells the story of God’s redemptive plan in Jesus from beginning to end. From Genesis to Revelation, we see the fingerprints of our Savior. “All along,” wrote Glen Scrivener for desiringGod.org,” “true faith was messianic faith, centered on Christ himself.” Emmanuel, God with us, Jesus was born incarnate on the earth fully human and fully God.
“The Bible teaches that Jesus is not merely someone who is a lot like God, or someone who has a very close walk with God,” wrote Matt Perman for desiringGod, “Rather, Jesus is the Most High God himself.” What’s more, Jesus promised never to leave us alone. Believers are given the gift of the Holy Spirit, dwelling in us at all times. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three separate persons that make up the one Triune God.
The mystery of the trinity and the incarnation is a subject that theologians much brighter and more qualified than I study in depth. This article is a mere starting point but continue after reading and explore God’s Word further. Inquire after sound, bright minds for additional theological truths about Jesus. A good theologian sees God’s Word as the ultimate authority for our earthly understanding of God. The Christian faith is not one of explanations we pull out of thin air, but of historical fact, evidence and eyewitness.
