Who is Jesus?
One of the creeds of Christianity sums up what the Bible teaches about Jesus in this way:
And we believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us, humans, and for our salvation, he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and became fully human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate. He suffered death and was buried. He rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
In other words, Jesus Christ is God the Son who entered into his creation, becoming a man, with the purpose of saving sinners. The story of what Jesus did is what we call the gospel. To learn more about the gospel, what it is, and what it means to you, we invite you to watch this short video.
