It is the most important question any of us could seek an answer to. Without a doubt he is the most significant, polemical, and influential person to ever walk on this planet. More songs are sung to him, books written about him and lives changed by him than anyone in human history. Our calendar revolves around his arrival, kingdoms are created and conquered in his name, and the book (i.e. the Bible) describing his life, death and resurrection is the best-seller of all time.
There is no question why there is such controversy and confusion around this man. Christians say he is God. Muslims say he was a prophet. Mormons say he was a good man who became a god. Jehovah’s Witness’ say he was just a man. Buddhists say he was an enlightened one. Jews say, at best, he was a great teacher and, at worst, a deceiver. Who is Jesus?
It is impossible to escape him and foolish to ignore him. No matter who you ask, or where you live, you must deal with Jesus of Nazareth. Many have speculated, but what did Jesus say about who he was, why he came and how we are to respond? Those are the questions we must ask. Therefore, this winter we invite you to join us as we explore Who Jesus Is: The Seven I Am’s of Jesus.
