Jesus is the second member of the Trinity and the Son of God, He is God incarnate as man, and He was both fully God and fully human (Luke 24:39, John 1:1, John 1:18, Romans 9:5, Colossians 1:19, Colossians 2:9). He was born of a virgin, Mary, and conceived by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 1:18-20, Luke 1:34-35). He lived a perfect and sinless life in order to be a holy and worthy sacrifice (John 15:10, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 9:26, 1 Peter 3:18, 1 John 3:5). He was tempted as we are tempted, He suffered as we have suffered, yet He did not fall into sin (Hebrews 2:18, Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26). He came to serve and not to be served (Philippians 2:5-11). Jesus was betrayed, beaten, mocked, and crucified on the cross where He died (Matthew 27:27-30, Mark 15:24, Luke 23:26-49, John 19:16-37). Jesus’ life was not taken from Him by any one, He gave it as a willing sacrifice for everyone (John 10:18). Three days later Jesus rose from the dead, conquering sin and death and showing His power over both (Matthew 28:1-20, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-53, John 20:1-23, 1 Corinthians 15:20, Ephesians 1:19-20, 1 Peter 1:3). After He rose from the dead He was on earth for 40 days before He ascended into Heaven (Luke 24:50-51, Acts 1:9-11). Jesus will return one day to rule and reign forever, judge the world, and take those who follow Him to live in the presence of God for eternity (Matthew 25:31-46, John 14:2-3).
