Jesus

Jesus

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

Why?

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

Strong emotions

Strong opinions

Misunderstood by many

Yet so loved and understood by some

Understood and loved by babes

Misunderstood by the scholars

Jesus

His name, His person

What is it about Him?

His teaching

Too difficult for some

Clear and perfect to others

Jesus

The perfect man

The son of God

God the son

The perfect prototype of the temple

Perfect measurements

The perfect measure of a man

Flawless as God intended

The second Adam,

God’s intent

A man who walked on water and moved mountains

He let not His will but God’s will be done

Jesus

God the Son

Redeemer, Lord, King

Blessed be Your holy name

Selah

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.

  1. carlos SP says:

    Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
    The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
    Isaiah 9:1,2

    For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
    Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
    Isaiah 9:6,7

    And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
    And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
    Daniel 7:14,27
