Who is He?
His name is recognized all over the world
Some like Him, others cannot stand Him
Some don’t want His name mentioned in private or in public
Who is He?
What is it about Him that stirs up
Anger, distaste, hatred in some
While in others
Comfort, freedom, healing, joy or even love
Misunderstood by many
Yet so loved and understood by some
Understood and loved by babes
Misunderstood by the scholars
His name, His person
What is it about Him?
Too difficult for some
Clear and perfect to others
The perfect man
The son of God
God the son
The perfect prototype of the temple
The perfect measure of a man
Flawless as God intended
The second Adam,
A man who walked on water and moved mountains
He let not His will but God’s will be done
God the Son
Redeemer, Lord, King
Blessed be Your holy name

John 7:25-26 (ESV)
Some of the people of Jerusalem therefore said, “Is not this the man whom they seek to kill? And here he is, speaking openly, and they say nothing to him! Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Christ?
John 7:50-44 (ESV)
When they heard these words, some of the people said, “This really is the Prophet.” Others said, “This is the Christ.” But some said, “Is the Christ to come from Galilee? Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the offspring of David, and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David was?” So there was a division among the people over him. Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him.
