Summary: If we do not know the Jesus of the Bible then we do not know what to expect from him today, Let’s find out who he was and we’ll know who he is.
The same in Love (Jesus personified the Love of God)
Joh 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Joh 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
1Jo 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
This is not only speaking of Jesus dying on the Cross, This is speaking of how he lived not for himself but for others, (he came not to be ministered unto but to minister and to give his life a ransom for many).
The same in Mercy: Jn 8:10-11 When they brought a woman to Jesus taken in adultery. Jesus asked these words of her. (hath no man condemned thee)?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
The same in Compassion:
Mt 14:14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Mr 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
The same in Hatred of dead Religion:
Mt 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Mt 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Mt 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Mt 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
The same in his Hatred for sickness and disease: (Jesus was a man at war with Satan)
Ps 139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Jesus counted demons and sickness and disease as enemies and destroyed them every time he came into contact with them.
The bible directly links sickness and disease with the works of Satan.
(Acts 10:38) How God anointed Jesus Christ of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with Power who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with him.
The same in Purpose: = (a) Lu 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. –(b) 1Jn 3:8 To destroy the works of the devil
These are essentially two facets of the same purpose.
Jesus reason for coming is to (1) restore to us everything that adam lost, To accomplish this he must (2) confront and conquer the enemy who holds the souls of men in captivity, Ie. He must deliver us.
