Who is Jesus Christ?

Who is Jesus Christ?

 

To consider who Jesus Christ is you need to expose yourself to his claims, character and power. Read the Gospels and Jesus Christ will be revealed.  Philip Schaff, a 19th Century Swiss theologian wrote a very useful insight into the impact Christ has had on our lives and throughout the World:

Jesus of Nazareth, without money and arms, conquered more millions than Alexander, Caesar, Mohammed, and Napoleon.

Without science and learning, He shed more light on things human and divine than all philosophers and schools combined.

Without the eloquence of schools, He spoke words of life such as never were spoken before or since, and produced effects which lie beyond the reach of any orator or poet;

Without writing a single line, He has set more pens in motion, and furnished themes for more sermons, orations, discussions, learned volumes, works of art and sweet songs of praise, than the whole army of great men of ancient and modern times.

Born in a manger, and crucified as a malefactor, He now controls the destinies of the civilized world, and rules a spiritual empire which embraces one-third of the inhabitants of the globe.

There never was in this world a life so unpretending, modest, and lowly in its outward form and condition, and yet producing such extraordinary effects upon all ages, nations, and classes of men.

The annals of history produce no other example of such complete and astonishing success in spite of the absence of those material, social, literary, and artistic powers and influences which are indispensable to success for a mere man.
