The person of Jesus Christ of Nazareth
The Person and Work of CHRIST — well that has been the topic of many debates. Such as, who He is and His purpose for coming into the world. First, let’s look at an example from the Holy Bible of who people said Jesus was when He was here in His physical body.
In Matthew 16:13-17 English Standard Version it says,
“13 Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.”
As we can see, people had different answers. And the same is true even today.
The work of Jesus Christ of Nazareth
Now, when we talk about the work of Christ Jesus, John said it as follows:
“14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”)
16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
Of course, Jesus Himself told us who He is and why He came. Matthew 5:17 English Standard Version says,
“17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
“10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
Even though the Bible is very clear on the person and work of Christ; many religions have their own incorrect views of Him.

Receive your Free Gift of Salvation – The Gospel of Jesus Christ
If you are reading this, it is not by chance. This is your time to receive the Gift of Salvation through Christ Jesus. Now, you may be wondering, “Why do I need that?” Oh, I’m so glad you asked. The Bible says, that because Adam ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — he released sin into the world.
And ultimately, Adam’s sin brought death and death spread to everyone. No doubt, you may be thinking, “Of course, everyone is going to die.” But, my question to you is “Where will you spend eternity?” Because there is life after death. In fact, when you die you go to one of two places — heaven or hell.
Also, it is important to understand that, Adam’s sin also brought an eternity in hell. But for those who choose not to receive the free gift of eternal life. Thus, you must make that choice before you take your last breath.
Romans 5:17 New Living Translation says, “For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ.”
To sum it all up, Romans 6:23 New Living Translation says,
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So, if you are reading this, don’t let another day go by without receiving this life-changing gift.
“8 …“The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach:
9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins. I ask You to forgive me. I want to follow You, Jesus. Come into my heart, into my life, and be my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that God raised you from the dead. By faith, I receive You, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior.
