Who is Jesus?

When Jesus was born, it was a very special birth. The prophets in the Old Testament told about Jesus’ birth hundreds of years before it happened. God was Jesus’ real Father. Jesus’ mother, Mary, and earthly father, Joseph, were common people. The angels announced that Jesus was born and that He was the Savior for all people.
Jesus lived a perfect life – He never sinned! Jesus healed sick people. He taught that God is good and loves us. Jesus raised dead people to live again. He showed that He can control nature.
Jesus died on the cross. He is our Savior. Through His death on the cross, Jesus forgave our sins. He took the punishment for our sins. Jesus even asked God to forgive the people who were killing Him. Jesus arose from the dead to show that He has power over death. Now Jesus comforts us and helps us when we face problems.
As you go to work or school today, think about Jesus. Follow His teachings. Be like Jesus – look for opportunities to love and serve other people.
