The understanding of who Christ is, is absolutely important. Mostly because it relates to our decision to be in relationship with Him.
First of all Christ’s humanity is not an emergency solution or God’s last option to save humanity. It was always Gods plan to show us his love through Jesus Christ.
But who is He? What sort of man is this?
“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:1)
I can imagine local people everywhere when Jesus showed up talking, speculating, arguing, ideologising… Did you hear…, It is said of him that… Did you know…? Especially the religious people of the day, the teachers of the law. Wherever He was, if he opened His mouth or did something, He was the talk of the town.
When Jesus calms the storm in Matthew 8:27 the disciples said
“what sort of man is this, which even the winds and the sea obey him?”
