An independent, Christ-centred, Bible-teaching church meeting in Wonthaggi, Victoria

Who is Jesus Christ?

Regardless of your background, Jesus Christ is hard to ignore.

  • He’s the central figure of the world’s best-selling book.
  • Every day millions utter His name, either as a curse or in praise and prayer.
  • Almost 2 billion Christians claim to follow him;
  • More than 1 billion Muslims honor him as a prophet.
  • Leading Jewish theologians esteem him as a great rabbi.
  • His image can be found in Hindu temples.
  • Many cult leaders claim to be a reincarnation of the spirit of Jesus.

    Despite all the attention Jesus gets, most people have little idea of who He is, even many who claim to worship him.

    That Jesus actually existed as a person is rarely disputed since considerable evidence from a variety of sources demonstrates this.
    On reading the gospels, Albert Einstein reflected:

    I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene. No man can read the gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life.

    The more important question would be “Who did he claim to be?” and “What did the people of his time say about him?”

    The Bible records what He said about Himself:

    I and my Father are one John 10:30
