The Claims of Jesus

Why They Called Him “Jesus”

COPYRIGHT WARNING The actual name; Jesus was originally written as Lesous.[1] When the Bible was translated into Greek, no Greek word for Jesus existed. In each subsequent translation of the Greek text, Lesous became Jesus.

Who is Jesus?

In Jerusalem, about 2,000 years ago, a man known as Jesus of Nazareth made His entrance into the city. The people who lined the street lifted palm branches and shouted praises to Him in acknowledgement of Him as the prophesied Messiah of the Jews.

Jesus believed that He was coming in fulfillment of all the Hebrew prophecies which predicted that God would send a Savior into the world. Prior to this date, Jesus had prohibited His disciples from telling anyone that He was the Messiah. He was waiting for the specific day predicted by Daniel the prophet in chapter 9 of his book as well as “the day,” predicted by David in Psalm 118, when the Messiah would arrive on the earth.

Without the reality of Jesus arrival, there would be no purpose or importance for this book. The facts of history demand that Jesus was a real person, who lived, died, and was resurrected from the dead three days later. These are facts incontrovertible, despite the feeble attempts of those who have sought to impeach the accounts of the New Testament unsuccessfully.

This book contains evidence for the true identity of Jesus Christ—which validates His claim that He is the Son of God, the Savior of the World. Any person who is of such propensity to seek out and receive truth will find that this publication contains sufficient evidence to believe the claims which Jesus has made regarding Himself.
