Why is Jesus important?

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?

The amazing truth about Jesus is that He is both human and divine, both true man and true God. Christians have never really understood the depth of this mystery. In faith we affirm that Jesus of Nazareth brought the love and life of God to every one. In this brief study we will begin to examine what the Bible says about what Jesus did, why He is so important!


Read the following verses. What do they say about why Jesus came into the world?

Luke 19:1-10

1 Timothy 1:15

2 Corinthians 5:19

John 10:10

Read John 3:16-17. In these verses, what is Jesus called?

What is the goal of God the Father in sending Jesus into the world?

What is God's feeling about the world?

Jesus knew why He had come into the world. Three times He predicted what would happen. Read the following verses:

Matthew 16:21

Matthew 17:22-23

Matthew 20:17-19

What did Jesus say would happen?

In John 10:11-18 what does Jesus call Himself?

In John 15:13 what does Jesus prove for us by laying down His life?

According to 2 Corinthians 8:9 why does Jesus do this? What does “rich” mean in this verse?

Read John 19:30. What did Jesus cry before He died? What was “finished?”

When Jesus died on that cross He was sacrificing His life to save ours. That was His purpose in coming into the world. We will study more about that later. For now, we need to focus on Jesus dying for us because we needed His love and His life to be given to us. Read the following verses. What does each say about Jesus?

Romans 5:8

1 Timothy 1:15

Read Matthew 28:1-10. What is the message of the angels? Why is this important?

Read John 14:1-6. Why is Jesus so important?

 

Questions for thought/discussion:

How does the victory of Christ's resurrection set Him apart from other religious leaders?

If someone really believed the passages we read in this study were true, how would it change his or her life?

In your opinion, what is the most impressive thing about Jesus?

 

Suggested further activity:

Seek out an active Christian and work through this study with them. Ask his or her thoughts.
