“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6, NIV).
The Bible teaches that God is actually three Persons. This is a mystery that we will never be able to understand. The Bible does not teach that there are three Gods—but that there is one God. This one God, however, is expressed in three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The second Person of this Trinity is God’s Son, Jesus Christ. He is co-equal with God the Father. He was not a Son of God but the Son of God. He is the eternal Son of God—the second Person of the Holy Trinity, God manifested in the flesh, the living Savior.
He came to reveal God to men. He told us that God loves us and is interested in our lives. He told us of the mercy and long-suffering and grace of God. He promised life everlasting.
But more than that, Jesus Christ partook of flesh and blood in order that He might die. The very purpose of Christ’s coming into the world was that He might offer up His life as a sacrifice for the sins of men. He came to die.
Every word that He spoke was historically true. Every word that He spoke was scientifically true. Every word that He spoke was ethically true. There were no loopholes in the moral conceptions and statements of Jesus Christ.
