Born in the small town of Bethlehem roughly 2000 years ago,
Jesus Christ changed everything. Jesus proclaimed that He
was the Son of God in human form. He performed many miracles
and taught many lessons to prove His godly authority with
words and actions. As an act of love, He was crucified under
the Roman Empire although He was undeserving of death. Jesus
sacrificed Himself for sinful mankind, to save them from
sin's inevitable consequence, death. To further prove this,
he rose again three days after His death and appeared to
hundreds. Jesus is not just a man, nor just a teacher. He is
the saviour of the world.
The sin of mankind has caused separation between God and
man, with the consequences of human sin leading to death.
Jesus came to reconnect us with God, by paying the penance
of sin in our place. He died a gruesome death even though He
had led a perfect life, to reconcile us to God. Jesus
proclaimed that belief and acceptance of Him is the only way
for sinners to be saved from their pending condemnation. He
calls for us to repent and to live the true life that was
designed for us, following in God's ways.
