In his love, God sent the man Jesus into the world to save men from “their failure to live up to God’s ideals and the problems of suffering and death" and show His amazing character to all. Jesus is the promised Jewish Messiah, in whom many Old Testament prophecies and promises find their fulfilment. (Matt 1:21; 5:17; John 3:16)
Jesus Christ was born to a woman called Mary and inherited human nature from his mother, but was also the Son of God, conceived by God's miraculous power. (Luke 1:30-35)
We all need to understand that failing to live up to God’s standard of character is sin and this is our problem that leads to death.
Although tempted, Jesus was perfect, and was therefore a perfect representative sacrifice to save humankind from the cycle of sin and death. God raised Jesus from death and gave him immortality, and he ascended to heaven, God's dwelling place (Acts 10:38-43; 2:22-36).
His death was a statement about God's righteousness in condemning human sin, and his resurrection is God's promise of life to those who believe in him. (Romans 3:21-26)
The Bible promises that one day Jesus will return to reign as king of the world. (Acts 1:11).
He will return to the earth in person to set up the Kingdom of God in fulfilment of the promises made to Abraham and David. This is the focal point of the gospel taught by Jesus and the apostles and gives us hope to look forward to a time of justice for all.
