What About Jesus?


Just say his name.  “Jesus.”  There is something in that name.  Jesus – that’s the Latin form that is so common and well-known.  His name, if we follow a more Biblical approach should be “Yeshua.”  Read a number of articles by Ted Weiland at http://www.missiontoisrael.org/.  He constantly calls him Yeshua.

Yeshua, “The Lord is Salvation.”  The Christ is Savior.

But this isn’t about correcting an obvious mistake in the church’s history, this is about the one called Yeshua.  His life so (in alphabetical order)

  • Awesome
  • Beautiful
  • Caring
  • Daring
  • Eventful
  • Full
  • Godly
  • Holy
  • Immanuel
  • Just
  • Kind
  • Loving
  • Master
  • Name above all names
  • Overcomer
  • Prophet
  • Quench’s spiritual thirst
  • Righteous
  • Son of God
  • Teacher
  • Upright
  • Victor
  • Water of life
  • X-factor (the unknown quotient)
  • Yahweh
  • Zealous

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, first and last beginning and end (everything in between).  The Bible uses so many terms and word pictures to describe Jesus, it would take a book to list them.  Oh yeah, it did.  It’s called the Bible.

There are many things that we can learn about Jesus.  I have chosen 5 aspects of who Jesus is that are important for people to know to become his disciples.

  • That Jesus is our Healer
  • That Jesus is the Son of God
  • That Jesus is our High Priest
  • That Jesus is the Risen Savior, Our Redeemer
  • That Jesus is the Coming King

Is there more?  Yes.   And time gives us opportunity to look at more.  But we’ll just start with these for now.
