The Bible Says

Who is Jesus?

Matthew 16:13-17When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?" 14They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15"But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" 16Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."17Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

gospel of jesus christ5

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Is Jesus being the son of God all we must believe concerning His identity?

John 1:14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus the son of God …… is God.

gospel of jesus christ6

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Colossians 2:9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form,

When Jesus came to earth, did He leave His Godhead in heaven?

Hebrews 1:8But about the Son he says, "Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.

God the Father called His own son, God

Who is Jesus?

100% God & Man

gospel of jesus christ7

Gospel of Jesus Christ

Who does Jesus claim Himself to be?

The Bible Says

Jesus Himself claims to be the great I am

John 8:58"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!" (Exodus 3:13-14)13Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, `The God of your fathers has sent me to you,\' and they ask me, `What is his name?\' Then what shall I tell them?" 14God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: `I AM has sent me to you.\' "

gospel of jesus christ8

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Matthew 3:16-17 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."

So we must believe Jesus is God or we will die in our sins

What about the spirit?

There are THREE that make up the Godhead

GOD-SON-SPIRIT

gospel of jesus christ9

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,

How does Jesus fit in as part of the Godhead?

Why do we need a mediator?

Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.

We’re separated from God?

What can save us?

gospel of jesus christ10

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

What is the power of God to save us?

Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

What is the Gospel?

The bible interprets itself

gospel of jesus christ11

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Why did Jesus have to these things to save us?

I Corinthians 15:1-4 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

gospel of jesus christ12

We have a problem!

Romans 6:23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

SIN PROBLEM

We can’t deny it!

Gospel of Jesus Christ

We have another problem!

The Bible Says

GRAVE PROBLEM

1 Corinthians 15:20-23But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

2 Timothy 1:10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel

The Grave

The Bible Says

Because Jesus overcame the grave, we too can overcome the grave through reconciliation

Gospel of Jesus Christ

Now that we see what the gospel is, how do I respond to it.

The Bible Says

Life and Death Statement

Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

Believe, is that all I have to do, believe that the gospel took place?

gospel of jesus christ20

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

What about repentance? Do I have to change the way I live in order to obey the gospel?

1Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God

Life and Death Statement

What if I don’t? What if I choose not to obey the gospel?

gospel of jesus christ21

Gospel of Jesus Christ

What if we choose not to accept and obey the gospel?

Life and Death Statements

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power

gospel of jesus christ22

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

What must we do to escape God’s vengeance and everlasting destruction?

Romans 6:3-4Or don\'t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

How do we humans obey the gospel?

We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

How do I obey the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus?

gospel of jesus christ23

Gospel of Jesus Christ

United w/ Christ in resurrection

Romans 6:5If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.

United w/ Christ in his death

Buried w/ Christ in baptism

gospel of jesus christ24

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Romans 6:6-7For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin-- because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.

Our sins put to death on the cross

gospel of jesus christ25

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Dead to sin

Romans 8:10-11But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. 11And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.

Alive in Christ

His spirit living in us

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Slaves to sin

Romans 6:17-18But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. 18You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

The Bible Says

Where does one actually become a christian?

Galatians 3:26-2726You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, 27for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

In Christ

gospel of jesus christ29

Gospel of Jesus Christ

Once we become a christian, will we face persecution?

Should we count the costs?

Luke 14:26,28"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple."28Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?

John 15:20Remember the words I spoke to you: `No servant is greater than his master.\' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.

gospel of jesus christ30

Gospel of Jesus Christ

The Bible Says

Jesus commands commitment

2 Peter 2:20-21If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 21It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.
