Who is Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

As we gather for this Easter service, we celebrate the resurrection and ask: Who is Jesus? Throughout history, countless individuals have encountered Him, each faced with a crucial choice. From the wilderness to the streets of Jerusalem, from the shores of Galilee to the temple, people encountered Jesus and wrestled with His identity. Some saw Him as a teacher, or a miracle worker, or as a threat. But woven through these encounters is the truth of His divine nature.

Today, we dive into these encounters to understand who Jesus truly is and what His identity means for each of us.
