Who Is Jesus?

The scriptures tell us that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. The unknown has been made known. However, many of us have an image of Jesus that is inaccurate. Some of us might see him only as a judge, only as a friend, someone who is impersonal, or one we try to stay away from and try to avoid at all costs.


The scriptures have provided a means to elevate Jesus to be to be clearly seen by all of us. The objective is to better understand Jesus. Jesus makes visible what is invisible. John 1 tells us no one has ever seen God, but Jesus has made Him known. John 10 Jesus tells us that, “I and the Father are one.” Philip asks to see the Father and Jesus assures him who ever has seen Jesus has seen the Father.

What image comes to mind when you hear His name? What people have shaped your image of Jesus? What experiences have shaped your understanding of who He is?

Jesus has demonstrated His power over nature, sickness, demons, death, and Hebrews 1 tells us it is all done with a word. In our culture Jesus is taught to be our friend, however, Colossians tells us that all things have been created by him, through him, and for him.

What is your image of Jesus?

One thought on “Who Is Jesus?

  1. Mark Penrith

    Hi there,

    I guess I always think of Philippians 2: 5 – 11:

    “5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, {and} being made in the likeness of men.
    8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
    9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

    Jesus, both human and God.

    In Christ,

    Mark
