Who is Jesus Christ?


    Jesus Christ says:



"I am the way, the truth and

the life. Nobody comes to the Father except through me."


(The Bible: John chapter 14, verse 6)  

Jesus of Nazareth is much more than a his-torical figure. Jesus is the Messiah promised in the Holy Scriptures and announced through various prophecies (Hebrew: "Ma-shiach"/ancient Greek: "christos" = "The Anointed One"); also called 'Son of God'. God chose him to bring salvation to huma-nity.

Because man has sinned against God, he has lost the eternal life for which he was created. As a result of man's rebellion against his Creator, suffering and death came into this world. That is why God sent Jesus to restore the broken relation-ship with our Creator and Father and to give eternal life to people from all peo-ples of the earth through faith in the name of his Son. ​The name "Jesus" (Hebrew "Jashua"/ancient Greek "Iisous") means >God saves<.

Jesus - the Messiah

"He was chosen before the creation

of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake."


(The Bible: 1st Peter chapter 1, verse 20)   

Before the creation of the world, God had already appointed Jesus to be the Sa-vior and King of His coming kingdom of peace. When the fullness of time came, Jesus was conceived and brought into the world in the womb of a virgin named Mary by the Holy Spirit of God; just as it was prophesied about the Mes-siah in the Holy Scriptures several cen-turies before.

Born in Bethlehem in Judea (Israel) after the promise, Jesus grew up surrounded by his family. When Jesus was about 30 years old, he was baptized in the Jordan River and anointed with power and authori-ty by the Holy Spirit. From then on, Jesus began his mission, which he was called to by God. Jesus, accompanied by his twelve disciples whom he had previously chosen, traveled throughout Israel and taught the people the will of God.

Miracles and fulfilled prophecies



"And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them (...)."


(The Bible: Matthew chapter 15, verse 30)  

God authenticated Jesus in many ways: First, God announced the Messiah in the TaNaCh (today's "Old" or First Testament) through more than a hundred prophe-cies over a period of almost two millen-nia. Every single prophecy (except for those whose fulfillment is yet to come) was fulfilled to the last by Jesus. This fact, which is true of no other prophet of any religion, clearly attests to both the credibility of Jesus and the Bible as the true Word of God (See: The Credibility of the Bible).

On the other hand, God gave Jesus extra-ordinary wisdom that no other person had. More over Jesus received the power from God to perform supernatural signs and wonders, which are attested in de-tail in the gospels of the New Testament, in that Jesus healed the sufferings and illnesses of many people and even brought the dead back to life. These signs were intended to further certify that Jesus is the promised Savior who was to come into the world.

Jesus - the image of God

"He is the image of 

the invisible God (...)."


(The Bible: Colossians chapter 1, verse 15)   


Although God originally created man in His image, man has no longer been fit for purpose since the day he lost his connection with his Creator. By loo-king to Jesus, we see what it means to be in the image of God. For Jesus reflected the personality of God in a flawless manner like no other before him. Jesus gave us an example of what true justice before God means by doing good and acting in accordance with the will of God at every moment of his life. Through Jesus, God's kingdom, in which love, truth and justice reign, became visible to all people. Jesus thus embodies what man should be according to God's creation plan.

God had already revealed His will to His chosen people Israel by teaching them His laws and commandments. But it is only in the person of Jesus - in his speech and actions - that the will of God is fully expressed. For this reason, Holy Scripture also refers to him as “the Word of God”.

Jesus' self-abasement

    Jesus Christ says:

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life

a ransom for many."


(The Bible: Mark chapter 10, verse 45)   

Jesus was sent into the world to show us humans how, in connection with him, we can live a life that pleases God and that brings peace and true fulfillment to ourselves and to everyone in the world (See: Life in freedom and peace). Although Jesus was destined to be king, he did not act as ruler, nor did Jesus ever use his power for his own benefit. Instead of pride and self-interest, Jesus' life was characterized by humility and selfless love. Jesus humbled himself to serve God and people like a slave. Instead of seeking honor and re-cognition for himself, Jesus gave glory to God his Father in everything. Jesus never did his own will, but always subordinated himself to the will of his Father.

Jesus' impeccable way of life and his inti-Jesus' impeccable lifestyle and his inti-mate relationship with the Heavenly Father in perfect unity and harmony serve as a model for us in every respect. His absolute trust in God and his com-plete devotion to humanity until death illustrate what faith and true love mean.

Death, resurrection

and ascension


"But you know that he appeared

so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin."

(The Bible: 1st John chapter 3, verse 5)    

The fact that Jesus was without sin makes him unique among all people - including all God-fearing persons in history. Although Jesus never did any-thing wrong, out of love Jesus was wil-ling to endure without resistance all the evil that people did to him and ul-timately even to die on the cross in an extremely painful and shameful way.
​But since Jesus himself never sinned, he was able to atone for the sins of all peo-ple through his own death. Through his righteous life, Jesus not only con-quered death himself, but also created a way out of death for all other people
(See: The way to redemption?).

That's why God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day. At the same time, God has confirmed that Jesus is the only way to salvation for all people. Jesus' death on the cross and his resurrection to immortal life are the most signifi-cant events in world history. They re-present victory over darkness and death and open the way to eternity for all who believe in the Son of God.

After the resurrected Jesus appeared to his disciples and testified to them that he was alive, he ascended to God in hea-ven. There he will remain until he re-turns at the appointed time to judge hu-manity and to raise to eternal life all who have allowed themselves to be re-conciled to God.

Now God offers all people the forgive-ness of their sins through faith in Jesus and thus the chance to participate in the imperishable life in the coming world, where there will be no more suffering or death. Anyone who accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior and fol-lows him is accepted by God. On the other hand, anyone who rejects Jesus and the message of the Gospel is rejec-ting God and thus the only possibility of being saved.

jesus - Lord of all

    Jesus Christ says:

"All power is given unto me

in heaven and in earth."


(The Bible: Matthew chapter 28, verse 18)   

Since Jesus was faithful to his Father in all things and freely gave his life for humani-ty, God has exalted him above all things and has transferred to Jesus all power and authority in heaven and on earth; also judgment on all people. Since then, Jesus has been the most powerful person in the entire universe. ​Moreover, it means that every person will one day stand be-fore Jesus; either to receive eternal life or for its condemnation.

At the same time, Jesus intercedes for all people who believe in him to help them, to bring their prayers to God and to give them instructions for their lives. Just as a shepherd cares for his sheep and guides them on a safe path, Jesus also shows those who trust in him as their shepherd and follow him the path to true life (see: Your step to new life).


Jesus - the light of the world

    Jesus Christ says:

"I am the light of the world.

He who follows Me shall not

walk in darkness, but have

the light of life."


(The Bible: John chapter 8, verse 12)    


Jesus lives and witnesses himself to count-less people (including many Muslims), among other things through dreams and visions, as the risen Messiah and Son of God. Through Jesus, God gives lost hu-ma-nity hope and a future. Anyone who is connected to Jesus has the light of life that every person needs (see: Words of life of Jesus).

​​In addition, all the testimonies of Holy Scripture confirm that Jesus is the Sa-vior promised by God and that in him alone lies the salvation of humanity. Jesus is the way to God and eternal life. The first apostles, who personally expe-rienced the life and work of Jesus, his resurrection from the dead and his ascension to God and through whom the good news of God spread around the whole world, also testified unani-mously:

"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men

by which we must be saved."


(The Bible: Acts chapter 4, verse 12)
