A man named Jesus was born in Bethlehem in the land of Israel, 2000 years ago. He was no ordinary man. He was fully human and yet fully God. He is the reflection of God. God was born as a human so He could suffer among the humans and to serve as a role model that every individual must follow. He also served as an offering of salvation and forgiveness for all the sins of the world. In the Old testaments, the birth, mission, death and resurrection were foretold by the prophets.
Jesus lived on earth as an ordinary man. Not a king, not a God but a man who lived among his fellow Jews. He performed miracles and preached the Gospel of the Lord for 3.5 years until the Romans crucified Him. Jesus died on a wooden cross and was buried in a tomb.
As foretold by the Prophets in the Old Testaments, Jesus life did not end in death. He was resurrected. Since He is the son of the Lord, he was able to open the doors to the heaven. He was also sinless, he’s able to forgive all the sins of the world so that we can also be accepted into the heavens.
John 3:16 stated that ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. This is the verse that shows how much the Lord love the world. He is willing to offer his only son so that we will be forgiven and will be free from sins. The blood of Jesus cleansed our sins. He offered His life so we will be free from evil things and that we could walk the ways of light.
As Jesus lived among the people, He performed several miracles and He spread the word of the Lord. The very first miracle he had done was turning water into wine. This can be found in John 2:1-11. Jesus was also able to feed thousands of people with limited number of resources. He healed those who are wounded and He freed those who could not escape. Truly, with all the miracles that Jesus performed, He is the son of God and He was sent to the world not only to teach us but also to show us that God is a loving God. You can learn more stories about Jesus in the bible, you can see it here.
Overall, Jesus is the way the truth and the life. As stated in John 3:16-17, Jesus explained to Nicodemus what a person needs to do in order to be accepted to the Kingdom of Lord. The only way is to believe and accept God as savior so people shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to sage the world through Him. Jesus is the way to salvation.
