Jesus; Son of God, Son of Man


What I Believe the Bible teaches about Jesus

The Bible teaches that Jesus is the Messiah and the saviour of mankind (Luke 2:11; John 4:42 etc.), who is the son of God by birth (Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:26-35) and by declaration of God (Matthew 3:17; 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 9:35; 2 Peter 1:17) and is recognized as such by the disciples (Matthew 16:16; Acts 8:37; 9:20; Galatians 2:20; 1 John 4:15). Jesus is the promised seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15), the promised seed of Abraham (Genesis 13:15; Galatians 3:16; Acts 13:23), and the promised son of David (2 Samuel 7:12-16; Luke 1:26-33; Romans 1:3).

Jesus is declared to be a human being (Acts 2:22; 17:31; Hebrews 2:14, 17; Romans 1:3; 8:3; 9:5; 1 John 4:2-3; 1 Timothy 2:5; Hebrews 10:12; 2 John 7), who began his existence when he was conceived in and then born of a virgin woman (Matthew 1:18-23; Isaiah 7:14), under the law of sin and death (Galatians 4:4; Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14), by the power of God (John 3:14-20; 1 John 4:9). 
Jesus grew weary (John 4:6), Jesus slept (Matthew 8:24), Jesus was limited in his power (John 5:19), Jesus had limited knowledge (Mark 13:32). Jesus had to grow and learn (Luke 2:52; Hebrews 5:8-9).  Jesus was seen by both men and women (John 1:29).  Jesus was tempted in all points just like we are (Hebrews 2:18; James 1:14-15), yet did not sin (Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22). Jesus died in obedience to his Father's will (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Philippians 2:8; Hebrews 5:8-9; 10:7-9), and Jesus needed salvation from death (Hebrews 5:7), and was raised from the dead by God on the third day (Acts 2:24, 32; 10:40; Acts 17:31; Romans 4:24; 6:4) Everything that Jesus has now (Philippians 2:9-11) was given to him by God, his Father (John 5:22; 1 Peter 2:7; 3:22; Hebrews 6:20; Matthew 28:18), which is delegated authority (John 5:19, 30; 14:28).
 
Jesus has ascended to heaven (Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51; Acts 1:9), and will remain there until the time appointed (Acts 3:19-21), when he will return to earth (Acts 1:11; John 14:3, 28; Matthew 24:30; 25:31), raise the responsible dead by God’s power (1 Thessalonians 4:15-16; 1 Corinthians 6:14; 2 Corinthians 4:14) , and judge those he deems responsible from the living and the raised dead (Acts 10:42; Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 2 Timothy 4:1; Hebrews 9:27; 1 Peter 4:5, 17). Jesus will establish the Kingdom of God on the earth (Genesis 12:1-3; 13:14-17; Psalm 2:6-10; Galatians 3:6-9, 16-17; Romans 4:13; Matthew 5:35), and subdue the nations (Daniel 2:44; 7:27; Zechariah 14:16-19; Isaiah 2:1-4; 11:1-16), and reign for a period of 1000 years (Revelation 20:6), at the end of which time he will judge those that have live through the millennium (Revelation 20:5). Once this is done and God has subdued all things under his feet, including death, (1 Corinthians 15:25-27), Jesus will turn the Kingdom over to his Father and God will be all-in-all (1 Corinthians 15:24, 28).
