Why is Jesus the Son of God, Messiah, & Savior of the World?
By: Ehimwenma E. Aimiuwu
October 10, 2021


According to the Bible and witnesses of the time, it will be wise to conclude that Jesus is the Son of God because of the following 8 reasons:

People at the baptism of Jesus heard God (loud voice) introduce him to humanity as the Son of God. (Matt 3)

John the Baptist (big prophet of the time) told the people that a messiah would come after him and acknowledged Jesus as the messiah during baptism. (John 1)

When Jesus walked by, even the demons within a demon-possessed man acknowledged him as the Son of God. (Mark 5)

Just before the death of Jesus, the Transfiguration took place. At the Transfiguration, witnesses saw Jesus in the presence of both Moses (Jewish law) and Elijah (the prophet). Judaism is based on following both the Jewish laws and the messages from the prophets. This is where both the law and prophets were fulfilled in Jesus and his death and resurrection were going to transform them into living by the Spirit of God. The Spirit of God through Jesus will guide humanity towards God and no longer the words of both the law and the prophets. (Matt 17)

The Jewish leaders or leaders of Judaism spoke in secret and agreement as they planned his death that he was the messiah and he was the one that the people should follow, but they were scared to lose their power and influence over the Jewish people. The leaders of Judaism did not want to become irrelevant to the ruling Romans and their Jewish followers. (John 11)

The Centurion, who guarded the altar (in the temple) only the High Priest could enter once annually, testified that Jesus was the Son of God when he realized that the curtain that protected the altar tore in two vertically at the exact time of his death by crucifixion. This signified the end of both the law and the prophets. (Matt 27)

Roman soldiers, who had no respect for the ethnic cultures of their conquered subjects, were stationed to guard his tomb to prevent his resurrection or his disciples from stealing his body, but instead testified that the tomb was forced open by an angel and they ran. (Matt 28)

After, Jesus resurrected from the dead, he ascended into heaven in front of witnesses. The location, time, and identities of observers were also recorded. Jesus does not have a grave. He died, was buried, resurrected, and ascended into the skies in front of many witnesses. (Luke 24) Get 15% - 40% off Edo Language CDs & Books
