Why Jesus?

Who is Jesus?

It’s an intriguing question. But it’s not as important as the answer!

The impact of Jesus on our world today is without question. Whether he is known for being a wise teacher or simply a swear word, most people have heard of Jesus.

But what did Jesus claim about himself?

Jesus’ claims about himself are staggering. He calls himself the ‘bread of life’: the one who provides life now and forever. He claims to be the judge of the living and the dead. He even calls himself ‘the way, the truth and the life’ and the only way to know God! After his sacrificial death on the cross, Jesus backed up his claims by rising from the dead.

Can these claims really be true?

Check them out for yourself. There are 1st-century historical accounts written about Jesus by those who were with him, freely available online here. Or have a look at a summary of What is Christianity?

Wherever you’re at with Jesus, you’re welcome at Stromlo. You can come along on Sunday to hear more about Jesus or to take a free copy of the Bible to read for yourself. You can also meet some followers of Jesus on Sunday at church. We’d love to share with you why we think Jesus’ claims about himself are true and life-changing!
