Jesus is Unique
There is no doubt at all that the New Testament presents Jesus Christ as an outstanding personality. He gives striking evidence of extraordinary powers in the miracles he performs; he makes the most penetrating observations about human life, and faith, and the true worship of God; and his claims concerning himself, as the only source of life to come, are such as no one else would dare to make. His apostles speak of him, after his ascension, as exalted to all power and authority at God’s right hand. And his own estimate of the vital significance of his person is summed up thus:
“This is life eternal, that (mankind) might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” (John 17:3)
Clearly, if we are to have any hope of life to come, we need to know the truth about the person and the significance of Jesus Christ.
