Who Is Jesus?
He is Eternal John 1:1 “In [the] beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” I am Mortal Romans 5:12b “and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” John 1 John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” New Way:
He is the Creator John 1:3 “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” I am Created Gen 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” 2Co 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” New Way:
He is the Light John 1:4 “In him was life; and the life was the light of men” I am in Darkness Rom 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death;” Job 12:24 “They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.” Mat 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” New Way:
John 3:16 John 3:16-20 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”
He is Announced John 1:6-7 “There was a man sent from God whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light…” John 1:10 “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.” John 1:11 “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” Eternal God Creator Light
Who Christ is and What He Did: Philippians 2:6-11 “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God; But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Do You Hear? Rev 13:8-9 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. Specifically, Those Who Don’t Accept Now!

Believe BELIE'VE, v.i. 1. To have a firm persuasion of any thing. In some cases, to have full persuasion, approaching to certainty To believe on, is to trust, to place full confidence in, to rest upon with faith.
Believe Hebrews 11:1,6 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Back to John 1
He is the Giver of New Life John 1:12-13 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” I am Given a Gift Rom 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Make A Stand Mat 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. “ Mat 5:15 “Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
Make Relationships Philippians 2:19-21 “But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state. For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's.”

He is a Perfect Man John 1:14 “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. I am a Failed Man Rom 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” 1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
