This article answers the who and the why about Jesus.

Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matthew 16:16)

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:5 & 6)

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:9)

As we read the Bible, we see several names that are used to describe Jesus Christ. Each name reflects an important aspect of Christ’s character. Let us take a look at some of these names.

Jesus is the Lamb of God. Jesus took away the sin of the world by sacrificing himself (John 1:29, I Timothy 2:5 & 6). He was perfect and without fault. These qualities allowed Jesus to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Even so, each man and woman must make the choice to accept God through Christ, or reject him. It should be remembered, Jesus seldom forces himself on any man or woman.

Jesus is God with us, or God made man (Matthew 1:23). As a man, God through Jesus Christ was able to truly experience the emotions and feelings that men and women feel. In addition, Jesus overcame the temptation of this world because of his link/relationship with God. As a result, all men and woman who accept Christ become sons of God and gain the abilities
through the shed blood of Jesus to make it through the temptations that they will face.

In conclusion, we can answer the question, “Why was Jesus Christ born?” Christ was born in order to save men and women from their sins (I John 3:5, Hebrews 2:16 & 17). He has accomplished this through the sacrifice of his life for our sins. Any man or woman has merely to step out on faith and receive God through Jesus Christ.
