Who is Jesus?
Jesus is God from all eternity (John 1:1–2). He took on human flesh (John 1:14) and became man, born of the virgin Mary (Luke 1:31). As man, he was able to serve as our substitute by living perfectly under the law (Galatians 4:4) and dying for us (Galatians 3:13). As God, this ransom could pay the price for all the world (Mark 10:45).

God sent Jesus as the mediator to bring us into God’s presence (1 Timothy 2:5). He is the final prophet (Hebrews 1:1–2) and has revealed all we need in the Bible (2 Timothy 3:15–17). The Aaronic priesthood was replaced by the Melchizedek priesthood (Hebrews 7:11–19) of which Jesus is the final and only high priest (Hebrews 7:23–27) who made the full and ultimate sacrifice for the world (1 John 2:2). Jesus also serves as our final king ruling over all things for the church (Ephesians 1:22–23). Through Jesus, every believer has direct access to God.
As our perfect substitute, our faith rests solely on Christ’s saving work (Hebrews 12:2).
