Who is the Christ?

In reading the Gospel of Matthew, we come face to face with Who Jesus is. The testimony of the genealogy of Christ clearly shows the Davidic lineage of Jesus Christ as fulfilled and proven by the Temple records at the time. Prophecies of a coming Messiah, attested by great signs and wonders, healings unheard of in such mass numbers which confirm His identity.

A survey of believers conducted by Ligonier Ministries sadly reveals the weakness of our theological foundation of understanding about exactly who Jesus actually is.

The following link provides more details of what we believe and do not believe about Christ and the Biblical passages which underscore our beliefs about Christ as the third person of the Trinity.

We are called as believers to be able to give a reason for our faith.

sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; ” ( 1 Peter 3:15).

The LIGONIER STATEMENT
on CHRISTOLOGY

We confess the mystery and wonder
of God made flesh
and rejoice in our great salvation
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

With the Father and the Holy Spirit,
the Son created all things,
sustains all things,
and makes all things new.
Truly God,
He became truly man,
two natures in one person.

He was born of the Virgin Mary
and lived among us.
Crucified, dead, and buried,
He rose on the third day,
ascended to heaven,
and will come again
in glory and judgment.

For us,
He kept the Law,
atoned for sin,
and satisfied God’s wrath.
He took our filthy rags
and gave us
His righteous robe.

He is our Prophet, Priest, and King,
building His church,
interceding for us,
and reigning over all things.

Jesus Christ is Lord;
we praise His holy Name forever.

Amen.
