Christians affectionately accepted Jesus as the Son of God. But here is what many people perceive about the man called Jesus. He was born in a manger in the modest town of Nazareth.

In addition to this, God supposedly raised Him from the dead, and His followers claim to have seen him after His resurrection.
Who is Jesus? The Bible answers every question ever raised about Jesus. It also gives us a clear and precise mental picture to help us answer the question Who is Jesus?

Jesus is the Word of God in bodily form. The Book of Revelation describes the risen Lord just as He is in heaven right now. Added to that, the disciple John writes, “I saw a white horse in heaven. And the One sitting on the horse has the name Faithful and True. He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and His name is The Word of God” (Revelation 19:11-13).
