Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the Truth, and the life. ~John 14:6
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is Truth. ~John 17:17
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And Your law is Truth. ~Psalm 119:142
So what does the Bible say about Jesus: Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus is the King, Lord, and Messiah (Christ). He is the First and the Last. He is the Only Begotten Son of God, the Radiance of God’s Glory, the Exact Representation of His Being, the Image of the Invisible God, the Word, and the Word was God. The Word became Flesh and dwelt among us. From the patriarchs is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised Amen.
(John 3:16, Rev 22:13, 1 Tim 6:15, Heb 1:3, Col 1:15, John 1:1,15, Rom 9:5)
So, if that is our measuring stick, by contrast, lets start by looking at what distortions have the world made about the character or nature of Christ? In others words......
Who do people say I am?
~ Mark 8:27
Who is Jesus Christ According to the World?
Every Possible Distortion That Can Exist Has and Has Been Suggested about Him
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.”
~ John 10:27-30 (NKJV)
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection
~Phil. 3:10 (NIV)
The "know" in all 3 of the verses is:
Know: Ginóskó (ghin-oce'-ko): to come to know, learn, understand, recognize, perceive, and feel; have full knowledge and understanding of; Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse between a man and a woman
This is a deep knowing, the highest possible kind of "know". This knowing is so deep that the ancients likened it how a husband knows a wife (ie Adam knew Eve KJV).
This is how God knows us, deeply, personally, intimately. Even the demons know God in a great degree and tremble. The question is do we want to KNOW him like that as well?
So who is this God-man Jesus, so paradoxical, a union of contrast.
He was the meekest and lowliest of all the sons of men. Yet, he spoke of coming on the clouds of heaven with the glory of God. He was so austere that evil spirits and demons cried out in terror at His coming. Yet He was so genial and winsome and approachable that the children loved to play with Him, and the little ones nestled in His arms. His presence at the innocent cheer of a village wedding was like the presence of sunshine. No-one was half so compassionate to sinners. Yet no-one ever spoke such red-hot scorching words about sin. A bruised reed He would not break, His whole life was love. Yet, on one occasion He demanded of the Pharisees how they ever expected to escape the damnation of hell. He was a dreamer of dreams and a seer of visions. Yet for sheer stark realism He has all of our self-styled realists soundly beaten. He was the servant of all, washing the disciples’ feet. Yet, masterfully He strode into the temple and the hucksters and the money changers fell over one another to get away from the mad rush and the fire they saw blazing in His eyes. He saved others. Yet at the last, Himself, He did not save. There is nothing in history like the union of contrast which confronts us in the gospels. The mystery of Jesus is the mystery of Divine Personality.
– James Stewart, Scottish theologian (1896-1990)
