The list below answers the question of who Jesus Christ is to us as believers and the world as a whole:

  1. Jesus is The Only Begotten Son of God: And Jesus when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and lo the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying  This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”—Matthew 3:16-17

  3. Jesus Christ is The Anointed one of God:The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord… And he began to say unto them, this day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears”—Luke 4:18-19, 21(See also Isaiah 61:1-3)

Jesus is Our King—He is the King of Kings  and Lord  of Lords: On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, Took branches of Palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord”—John 12:12-13(See also John1:49)

  8. Jesus Is The Propitiation for our sins—In other words, the atoning person or atonement for our sins: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God”—Romans 3:24-25(See also 1John 2:2, 1John 4:10)
