Who was / is Jesus?
FaithFuel firmly believes that Jesus was and is the Son of God. You can read the full story of who Jesus was and is on the Jesus Story page, but here’s our much shorter answer to this commonly asked question:
Basically, Jesus lived 2000 years ago in Israel. He taught His disciples, healed the sick, performed miracles, raised the dead and walked on water. People flocked after Him to hear His teachings, and the Jewish leaders didn’t like that. So they paid Judas, one of Jesus’ disciples, to betray Him. Jesus was arrested, beaten, whipped and then He was crucified.
Stripped naked, made to wear a crown of thorns, He hung on a cross with criminals for hours until He died and the curtain in the temple ripped apart. He was God. He could have stopped the suffering at any time. But He chose suffering and death because He loves mankind so much that He wanted to suffer in our place. God is angry with man’s sinfulness, but Jesus took the full force of God’s anger so that we don’t have to – so that if we believe in Him as our Saviour we can have the freedom of forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. Jesus died, was buried in a tomb, but death couldn’t hold Him and on the third day He was resurrected from the dead. He later ascended to Heaven to sit on the right hand of God the Father.
How Do I Get to Know Jesus as My Saviour?
There’s nothing complicated about entering into a relationship with Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. If you have read the full version of the Jesus story, and have looked at the Gospel page on the website, and you think you’re ready to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, and that He rose again from the dead and went to Heaven to live eternally with God, His Father, then there’s only one more question that you need to ask yourself. Do you accept that you have sinned, as all mankind has, and are you ready to repent of your sins and turn to God for forgiveness?
If you have more questions about what it means to be saved, you can find the answers on our Salvation page. Otherwise, you can just go ahead and pray the prayer at the bottom of the Gospel page.
