Christ was the Son of God, who died for us, that we may be saved.It's pretty certain that he lived, but if he hadn't it would make no difference, to Christians or others.
A Rabbi who lived and died >1900 years ago. Sincerely (but wrongly) believed himself to be the Messiah Testimony of the Gospels seems to indicate that Jesus attempted to fulfill the prophecies of the Messiah. History subsequent to the Crucifixion seems to indicate that he wasn't.
...was, is, and will be. Jesus was the Christ. He was the incarnation (earthly) of the sole creator of the universe and will be the power bearing one that returns to us to take us out of this preparatory stage of our existence.

He is eternal.
He is my lord.
He is my judge.
He is my friend.
He is my only real asset.

thanks for making me think about Him some.

Jesus Christ, to me IS the Savior of the world. He IS the Son of God. He is a lot more than that though. When I say He is a lot more than that, I mean that He isn't just the Savior of the world and can't be reached or related to. He is a Friend like no other. He will never let you down or stand you up or talk about you behind your back. He will always be there for you, whenever, even if it is 3:00 in the morning. How many friends do you have that you can say that about? Even your best friends are not available on a 24 hour basis all of the time. As a Christian, I trust Jesus to meet all of my needs, all of the time.(Not always easy to do) I give Him all of my concerns and problems. It is amazing how He answers prayer, even the seemingly insignificant ones. Well, I hope I have explained how I see Christ. I didn't mean to ramble. Grin.
Jesus is the Messiah promised in the Hebrew Scriptures. Fully God and fully man, He is our connection with God.

"God with skin on" is one of the best descriptions I've heard. :)

God in the Flesh!!! He is King Of The Universe, King of Kings, and He's coming back & bringing New Jerusalem with Him! How could any accident create this world with its complexity and beauty? And He placed His witness in me--before I found out who He was for real (and I don't mean by Churchianity), I was the loneliest, most suicidal person. But I got a LIFE!
Jesus was a Jewish religious leader who believed that the Kingdom of God was at hand. He believed he was God's messanger similar to John the Baptist. I do not believe that Jesus was the Son of God, God or exists today. I have never seen any evidence that Jesus exists today I believe Jesus existed, but that the belief that he is God and the doctrine of the Trinity was developed after Jesus' death. In the Old Testament God is very talkative and gets involved in small details of people's lives. He tells people how to live, what to eat, how to be punshished etc. but never once says oh by the way I have a son and the most important thing in the world will be to believe in him one day.
The Son of God, who considered it joy to take on humanity, while laying aside the glory that was due Him, that He might atone for the sins of the world and free mankind from the bondage of sin. He remained entirely untainted by sin while tempted in all ways as we are. After dying on the cross (becoming sin and bearing the wrath of God the Father) He rose three days later. After reveiling Himself risen to His disciples He ascended on high to sit at the seat of His Father until all things have been made subject to Him.
In my opinion, Jesus may or may not have existed as a man. There is mention of him within the writings of Josephus, but it is obviously a forgery. Jesus, in my opinion, was a hypocrite, and a terrible example of someone was supposed to be perfect. He told his disciples that he would be back during the same generation, and they obviously expected him at anytime, but 2000 years later, Christians are still waiting for his 'quick' return. The material in the anonymous gospels seems to have been borrowed from other myths (Mithra, Buddha, Attis, Horus, etc.) that predate the gospels. It smells like a myth-making competition to me. Mithraism is almost identical to Christianity. I have yet to see a convincing fulfilled prophecy inside or outside of the bible. Working the way those gospel writers did, any verse in the bible could be turned into a fulfilled prophecy (read the book of Matthew's account of Jesus riding on two donkeys - see it for what it is - a colossal blunder. If you would like some help, hav e some other people read it (people without Christian bias) and ask them what they think that it means. Then you will probably get the right answer).
The Unique Son of God Who lives in eternity as part of the Godhead before the beginning of time. He became a real human being in the person of Jeshua of Nazareth in Israel almost 2,000 years ago for the purpose of redeeming man- kind from death and corruption by a substitutionary death on a Roman cross and subsequent bodily resurrection. He ascended into Heaven from which He will come again to take all believers to be with Him for all eternity. He is my Lord whom I serve daily.
Jesus Christ is God incarnate, the prophesied Messiah, who sacrificed Himself for the sins of the world. He now sits at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us. His sacrifice was a gift to us, freely given, which we can do nothing to obtain, nor nothing to lose once we truly have received it. If we think we have anything to do with either the gain or loss of our salvation through Him, we are denying what He did for us on the cross. He is alive, vibrant, personal and intimate with those who will accept His company. He is the most precious thing in my life!
