The Controversy – “Who is Jesus?”

Who is Jesus? Faith in Jesus begins by knowing who Jesus is. If a person does not know who Jesus is, it is to have faith towards an unknown God in vain and nothing more than just calling out the name of ‘Jesus’. However, surprisingly, there are many Christians who believe in Jesus without knowing who He is.

In order to know Jesus, it is necessary to understand the ‘Trinity’ of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity theory has long been controversial. Some churches claim that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are three different Gods in essence, while other churches claim that God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are subordinate to God the Father.

Then, does this mean that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one divine person, or three divine persons? Today’s theologians, give an ambiguous answer that the ‘three are one in essence’ which means it does not belong to one or the other because they have defined both as heretical. If someone asks for a more detailed explanation, they say, “Humans cannot fully understand the divine nature of God.”

Indeed, where was Jesus before He came to this world and who was He? Let us study the writings of the prophets on this matter.

Prophecy about ‘Jesus’

The Bible prophesies about Jesus by various titles. Sometimes as God (Isaiah 40:3, 9–11, Matthew 3:1–3), sometimes as the Son (Isaiah 9:6–7, Luke 1:31–32), sometimes as God’s chosen one (Isaiah 42:1–4, Matthew 12:16–21), as well as other titles.

Then, which record of the Bible, that says Jesus comes as God, comes as the Son, or comes as the chosen one, is correct? The Bible is a sure book of prophecy, and not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen will by any means disappear until everything is accomplished (1 Thessalonians 5:20, 2 Peter 1:19–21). So all words recorded are true.

It is only the ‘essence’ of Jesus, and the ‘role’ He takes on after coming to this earth that are different. The important thing is to judge with the words about who He is in very nature, rather than being confused about the role of Jesus.

Answer to the Question

The essence of Jesus, that is, the question of who He is in very nature, can be easily solved if it is known who the spirit of Jesus is.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 1:18)

Jesus was born through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God (John 4:24). The Spirit of God was born as Jesus through the body of the Virgin Mary. This is why the Bible refers to Jesus as ‘Immanuel.’ Immanuel means, ‘God with us’ (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23). In other words, God the Holy Spirit came in the flesh and dwells with us.

The apostles Paul and John, who realized this fact, testified about Jesus as follows.

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. . . .

(Philippians 2:6–8)

In the beginning was the Word, . . . and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. . . .

(John 1:1, 14)

Nothing is impossible for Almighty God. God can be born as a person, and even appear as a passerby (Genesis 18:1–4). Therefore, it should not be a surprise if God is born in the flesh. Jesus also referred to Himself as God.

I and the Father are one.”

(John 10:30)

In this way, the words of Jesus and the testimony of the apostles recorded in the Bible contain a clear answer to the question ‘Who is Jesus?’ What is noteworthy is that realizing the nature of Jesus is not done with human abilities, but a special gift from God (Matthew 16:16–17).
