Who is Jesus? 

Jesus is a real man, who lived a real life, died a real death for us and was raised from the dead conquering death for us. He did all this so we could be friends with God again and no longer enemies. He did this so we could be sons and daughters of God. 

God revealed in the Bible is a loving Father. But each person has rejected his love. We all do it in different ways. Some of us through being good or religious according to our standards. Others, by a selfish and self centred life. 

But God loves us too much to let us keep running away from him and to leave us in our sin. God, the Father, sent into our world Jesus - fully man, fully God. God among us.

“Anyone who trusts Jesus for new life and stops trusting themselves can now be a friend of God.”

Jesus came to show us who God was and to die on the cross. He lived the life we couldn’t live. And died the death we needed. His death rescues us from God’s anger at the wrong we’ve done. By trusting in Jesus as our saviour and kneeling before him as our king we are brought back into friendship with God. And what’s more we are adopted in as God's children with God as our loving Father. But without Jesus' life and death for us we will stay lost from God and will face the consequences of our choices.

In around 35 AD a group of Christian were taught the following about Jesus. It is recorded for us in Paul's letter to this group of Christians.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures
— Paul in 1 Corinthians chapter 15
