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 the Messiah (Hebrew "Mashiach"), also called Son of God or Christ (ancient Greek "christos") - mea-ning "The Anointed One" - chosen by God, promised in the Holy Scriptures and an-nounced by many prophets, who was to come into the world to redeem mankind.

Because man has sinned against God, he has lost the eternal life for which he was created. As a result of the sin of the first humans, suffering and death came into this world. Therefore, God sent Jesus, whom He has appointed to be the Savior of all people, to reconcile us to himself, that is, to restore the broken relationship be-tween us and our Creator and Father, and to give eternal life through faith in his name to people from all peoples of the earth. ​The name "Jesus" (Hebrew "Yashua" or "Yahuschua" and ancient Greek "Iisous") means >God saves<.

"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)   

God already predestined Jesus before the creation of the world as the redee-mer of mankind and king of his coming kingdom of peace on earth. When the time was fulfilled, Jesus was begotten and brought into the world in a unique and superhuman way by the Holy Spirit of God in the womb of a virgin named Mary, just as the Scriptures prophesied several centuries earlier.

Born in Bethlehem of Judea (Israel) ac-cording to the promise, Jesus grew up surrounded by his family. When he was about 30 years old, Jesus was baptized in the Jordan and anointed with power and authority by the Holy Spirit of God. From there Jesus began the mission to which God called him. So Jesus, accom-panied by his twelve disciples, whom he had previously chosen, went through all of Israel and taught the people the will of God. To this end, God authen-ticated Jesus as the Messiah in many ways.

​On the one hand, God had Jesus an-nounced in the TaNaCh (the Jewish Bible or today's "old" or first testament) through more than a hundred prophe-cies over a period of more than two millennia as the redeemer of all people. Every single prophecy (except for those that refer to the return of the Messiah at the end of this age and whose fulfill-ment is still to come) was fulfilled by Jesus to the last. This is a fact un-matched by any other prophet of any religion, and which testifies unequivo-cally to the credibility of both Jesus and the Bible as the true Word of God (See: The Credibility of the Bible).

Second, God bestowed upon His Messiah extraordinary wisdom unmatched by any other. In addition, Jesus received from God the power to perform signs and wonders, which are attested to in detail in the gospels of the New Tes-tament, in that Jesus healed the ailments and diseases of many people in a super-natural way and even brought the dead back to life. These signs were to give ad-ditional attestation that Jesus is the promised Savior who was to come into the world. 

"He is the image of 

the invisible God (...)."


(The Bible: Colossians chapter 1, Verse 15)   


Jesus, the Messiah of God, is far more than just an ordinary man or prophet. Jesus reflected the personality of God in a flawless manner, like no other before him. Although man was origi-nally created in God's image, he has not lived up to his destiny since the day he turned from God and thus lost connec-tion with his Creator.... (See: God and Suffering).

Jesus, on the other hand, exemplified for us humans what real righteousness means before God by doing good and acting in accordance with the will of God in every moment of his life.

God had already revealed his will to mankind, above all to his chosen people Israel, by teaching them his rights and commandments. But it is only in the life and actions of Jesus that God's will is fully expressed. Through Jesus, God's kingdom - in which love, truth and justice reign - became visible to all peo-ple. By looking to Jesus, we see how we human beings should be and what it means to be made in the image of God. At the same time, the personality of Jesus gives us a foretaste of the world to come, when God will set up His eternal kingdom with Jesus as King of all people on earth and where there will be peace and justice, prosperity and health for all time.

    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 how, through union with Him, we can live a life that pleases God and that will bring peace and true fulfillment to ourselves and to all people on the world (See: Life in freedom and peace). ​

Instead of selfishness and pride, the life of Jesus was constantly determined by humi-lity, gratitude and selfless love. Jesus always did what is pleasing to God and useful for his fellow human beings. Al-though Jesus was destined by God to be Messiah and King, he did not act as ruler, nor did Jesus ever use his power for his own benefit. Instead, he humbled himself in order to serve God and people in love, thereby setting an example for us to love and to serve one another by good works.

Instead of seeking glory and approval for himself, Jesus gave glory to God his Father in all things, submitting himself to his Father's will in complete trust without exception. In this trust, Jesus al-lowed himself to be constantly guided BY GOD, knowing that HE was always with him and caring for him.

The intimate relationship in complete unity between Jesus and God our Father serves as an example for us in every res-pect and at the same time shows us what genuine faith and true worship mean.


"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)    

Unlike all other people, Jesus was with-out sin. This fact makes Jesus unique among all prophets and godly persons. Although he never did anything wrong before God and man, out of love Jesus was willing to endure without resis-tance everything that people did to him because they did not want to accept him and his saving message, and finally even to die on the cross extremely painful and shameful....
Because Jesus himself never sinned, but fulfilled the will of God in every res-pect, he was able to atone for the sins of all people through his own death (that is, bring about reconciliation between us and God). by his righteousness Jesus not only overcame death but also crea-ted the way out of death for all other people, who turn back to God
(See: Why redemption?).

That is why God raised Jesus from the dead and confirmed him as the only savior of all people. After the ressurec-ted Jesus had testified to his desciples he ascended to his father in heaven. There he will remain until the time appointed by God to return to judge mankind and to redeem all who have lived in accor-dance with God's will.

Now God offers all people the forgive-ness of their sins through faith in Jesus and thus the chance to participate in the immortal life in the world to come, where there will be no more suffering or death. Anyone who accepts Jesus as his Lord and Savior and follows him is accepted by God. On the other hand, anyone who rejects Jesus and the mes-sage of the gospel rejects God and thus the only chance of being saved.

"All power is given unto me

in heaven and in earth."

(The Bible: Matthew chapter 28, Verse 18)   

Since Jesus was faithful to God in all things and freely gave his life for man-kind, God exalted him above all else and gave Jesus all power and authority in heaven and on earth; also the judgment of all peoples at the end of this age. This means that Jesus is the most powerful per-son in the entire universe since that point in time and that he can influence events on this earth in any way he likes.

Moreover, it means that every human being will one day stand before Jesus; either to receive eternal life or to be condemned.


At the same time, Jesus intercedes for all people who believe in him, to help them, to bring their prayers to God or to give them direction for their lives. Just as a shepherd cares for his sheep and guides them on a safe path, so Jesus shows those who entrust themselves to him as their shepherd and follow him the way to true life.

    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 gives light and hope to lost people. God brought the greatest proof of love for mankind when he gave his Son to free us, humans, from our sins and to show us the way to life. Those who are connected to Jesus have the light of life that every person needs (see: Words of life of Jesus).

​Jesus lives and testifies to countless people (also to many Muslims) - inclu-ding through dreams and visions - as the risen Messiah and Son of God.

More over all the testimonies of the Holy Scriptures confirm that Jesus is God's promised Savior and that in him alone lies the salvation of mankind. Jesus is the way to God and to Eternal Life. By believing in Jesus, we humans have a future beyond this age (see: The step to life).

The first apostles, who personally wit-nessed the life and ministry of Jesus, his resurrection from the dead and his ascension to God, and through whom the good news of God spread around the world, also testify:

"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)
