Rooted in my Knowledge of Who Jesus Is

Rooted Lesson 3

We know that most people have some inaccurate perceptions of Jesus, but this is also a problem in the church today. A survey called “The State of Theology” asked professing evangelical Christians about their beliefs, and the answers were a mixture of truth and error.

With the human race fallen and depraved, God had three options: He could destroy it; He could simply ignore it in its fallen state and let it self-destruct; or He could offer a way of salvation man could either accept or reject.

Our salvation is dependent on following the One whom God sent to redeem us. Therefore, we must be certain we’re trusting in the only true Savior—Jesus—as He has revealed Himself in the Bible.

There are 5 aspects of Jesus that we want to talk about:

  1. Jesus is Eternal

  2. He is God

  3. He is with God

  4. He is the Creator

  5. In Him there is Life

Jesus described Himself as one who would meet a wide variety of needs. Think about the passages below and then respond to what these aspects of Jesus can mean to you.

John 6:32-35 The bread of life
