Who is Jesus?

That is perhaps the biggest question that people need to decide in their lives. What do you all thing? Who is Jesus?

Some man who lived about 2000 years ago in the Roman Province of Judaea/Palaestina and proclaimed to be the long-expected son of the Jewish God, and some believed him.

He is the Holy Son Of God, who came to earth to destroy the work of the Devil. And he did that by willingly dying on the cross to pay the price for our sins, because we can't pay it ourselves.

A man who lived about 2000 years ago and became known as society's savior and messiah. He died on the cross for us, and only for us. He is the only son of God. He is the greatest person ever, a miracle worker, life saver and everything else.

Jesus, even for those who arent Christian, is one of the only, if not the only, Man that stands for the greatest things ever.

I seriously think, at least me personally, that I dont spend enough time thinking how great He really is.

That's interesting, death bear, "even for those who aren't Christian" -- they could still regard Jesus as a great man. I mean, folks may not believe that he is the Son of God, but they gotta admit, he taught revolutionary principles (remember how he said that he came not to bring peace, but a sword?) and had endless compassion (he hung out with the 'worst' people).

It's my opinion that Jesus did struggle within himself and with God about whether he was the Messiah. I think we could've learnt more about this aspect if we had documentation of the lost 30 years of his life (in between childhood and around his baptism). Who knows? *shrug* Oh well, it's no use for me to wonder because the point is that he did accept his role as sacrificial lamb and went through with the crucifixion.

I find it comforting that he was also a 'man of sorrows' because it shows his compassion.

Wow Mr. Swallow. Of all the answers I liked yours the best, one day I hope to be able to say the same. I know that He will always be mine but I know that I am hardly ever His. Anyway, thanks for blessing me Johnny!

The details of my life are inconsequential.

Oh no, lets hear about your childhood.

Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen-year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy... the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical... summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds... pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve, I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

I do, because he lives in me. His Holy Spirit has taken residence in my heart. And it is no tall tale, I can assure you of that.
