Q Who is Jesus?
According to the New Testament of the Bible, “Jesus, also called Jesus Christ, is God the Son, God in the flesh. After a public ministry of preaching and performing miracles, Jesus was sentenced to death. He died a gritty death by crucifixion on a Roman cross, but He rose from the grave, victorious over Satan, sin, and death itself. All who believe in Jesus and put him in charge of their life will spend eternity with Him in heaven.”
