Who is Jesus Christ?

Jesus Christ is God the Son. He is one of the three divine persons that make up the triune God. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This doesn’t mean there are three separate Gods, there is only one God and creator of all things but God exists eternally as three distinct persons known as the trinity.

God is a relationship of self giving love between the persons of the trinity. God is love and love is other centred. If God didn’t exist in three persons He would only have Himself to love and would need to create the universe to have a subject of His love. But God is self sufficient and doesn’t need us to express His love. God is love and each member of the trinity loves the other members of the trinity equally and eternally. God created everything that is in existence out of the super abundance of His eternal love.

Jesus’ name means “God is salvation” and Christ means the anointed one of God, He also has another name Emmanuel which means “God with us”.

Jesus is God in the flesh, He came to save us and He came to suffer for us. Jesus absorbed all the hatred and evil in the world, every gun shot, every rape, every punch in every fight, every hateful thought and deed and painful feeling that every human ever felt. He experienced it all on the cross and He absorbed it all, engulfed it in His love and He forgave it all.
