Teaching Notes: On Jesus Christ

By Mmcgee4
Posted on February 4, 2017 by under Grace Thoughts

In our last Teaching Notes, we looked at the Bible’s teaching about the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God the Father is often referred to as the First Person of the Trinity, yet the New Testament is quite clear that God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are Co-Equal with God the Father.

We turn now to the Second Person of the Trinity in this continuing series of Teaching Notes from the 1970’s.

[These notes are from 40 years ago when I spoke to a group of pastors.]

The birth of Jesus the Christ (Messiah) was predicted hundreds of years before He was born (Isaiah 7:14). The fulfillment is found in Matthew 1:18-25 –

  • Jesus was born to a virgin
  • His Father was God and His mother was a young Jewish maiden named Mary
  • He lived a sinless life (John 8:46) and gave His life to ransom the lives of others (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Jesus shares the attributes of His Father and the Holy Spirit –

  • He is All-powerful (Matthew 28:18)
  • All-knowing (Colossians 2:3)
  • Everywhere-present (Matthew 18:20)
  • Eternal (John 1:1-2, 15).

Jesus Christ –

  • became a man (John 1:14)
  • did His Father’s will (John 6:38)
  • came to save sinners (Luke 19:10)
  • came to destroy Satan’s works (1 John 3:8)
  • came to fulfill the Old Testament (Matthew 5:17),
  • came to give life (John 10:10, 28)
  • came to complete revelation (Hebrews 1:1-2)

Jesus Christ –

  • was worshiped by demons (Mark 5:6)
  • was worshiped by angels (Hebrews 1:6)
  • was worshiped by His disciples (Luke 24:52)
  • is worshiped by the saints in Heaven (Revelation 7:9-10)
  • will one day be worshiped by all mankind (Philippians 2:10-11)

Jesus Christ is the most beautiful Person of all time –

  • I love Him deeply and have received amazing love from Him
  • He is my dearest and closest friend
  • He died in my place that I might be justified
  • He rose from the grave to lead me into triumph over death
  • At this moment He is at the right hand of God the Father acting as my High Priest and Heavenly Advocate (Hebrews 4:14; 9:24; Acts 1:9-11; 1 John 2:1)

[Thank you for reading these teaching notes from 40 years ago. My prayer is they will be a blessing to you and your ministry.]
