Foundations Who is Jesus?
Romans 6:23a For the wages of sin is death
What kind of a Savior do we need? One who removes the curse of sin (death)
Matthew 5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
What kind of a Savior do we need? One who could remove the curse of sin (death) One who gives us perfection (holiness) as a gift
Galatians 4:4-5 Hebrews 2:14 But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons. Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil.
Therefore, the Savior we needed had to be 1.Man in order to live under the Law in our place and die in our place
Psalm 49:7-8 No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him--the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough.
Therefore, the Savior we needed had to be 1.Man in order to live under the Law in our place and die in our place 2.But he also had to be God for his perfect life and his sacrificial death to count for everyone
John 1:1 1 John 5:20 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true--even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
Who is Jesus Christ? The Bible calls him God
Hebrews 13:8 John 21:17 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.

Hebrews 2:14-16 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants.

Acts 10:38 … God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.
Our Savior ’ s Office As the Christ, or Messiah (Anointed One), he was anointed with the Holy Spirit to serve as our: High Priest Prophet King
Hebrews 7:25-27 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest meets our need--one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself.
Our Savior ’ s Office 1.As our High Priest, Jesus … sacrificed himself once and for all our sins. intercedes for us as our Mediator (Go- between)

Romans 14:8-9 If we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.
Our Savior ’ s Office As our King, Jesus … rules our hearts and lives through his word.
Ephesians 1:20-23 … which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
Our Savior ’ s Office As our King, Jesus … rules our hearts and lives through his word. rules everything for our eternal good.
