Jesus is Lord
Scripture proclaims Jesus as Lord — King of kings and Lord of lords. This chapter establishes the salvation message of Scripture: Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. A huge preponderance of evidence establishes that Jesus is Lord of all those who will be saved and is Savior only of those for whom he is Lord.
Jesus is the Christ
The Jewish Messiah prophesied to come was known as the Annointed One — the Christ. The Jews eagerly awaited his coming and his coming was foretold by many specific prophecies. Only one unique person could fulfill these prophecies. The Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled all those except those still awaiting fulfillment. Few people are aware that his coming as King was foretold to the day.
Jesus is the Son of God
The Apostle John referred to Jesus repeatedly as the Son of God. Scriptures show that the title Son of God is equivalent to that of Lord. Paul assures us that the Son of God is Jesus Christ the Lord, covering Jesus’ major titles in one sentence. The title Son of God shows Jesus’ relationship with his Father.
Jesus is the Son of Man
It is as the Son of Man that Jesus identified with humanity. Indeed, he was completely human — a man — as well as God. He is the unique God-man. Because he was uniquely conceived by the Holy Spirit, Jesus was able to live without sin and did not sin. Thus he was able to be the perfect, unblemished lamb acceptable to God as a sacrifice for sin, whose blood was shed for the remission of sins, as an atonement for sin.
Jesus is Savior
Jesus is Savior for all for whom he is Lord. And Jesus must be Lord of all who will be saved! It may surprise the reader that God the Father is also referred to as our Savior. Indeed, he is the one who sent Jesus to earth to die for our sins so that we may be saved. But, contrary to popular belief, there is no salvation for those who only “accept” or “receive” Jesus as Savior.
This short writing tells of the impact of Jesus Christ on the world. Even Time Magazine credits Jesus as being the world’s most influential person.

Mr. Trimm shows us how careful scholarship can establish precise time of events, such as the birth of Christ.
By Jim Searcy
A wonderful, simple writing about the misconceptions of Jesus, who people think he is and how false almost many of those concepts are. It is an excellent presentation, intended to cause each of us to think about who Jesus really is and who he must be to you and me if he is to be the source of our salvation.
