The Most Important Question of Your Life

Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But who did He say He was? . . . Who Do You Say He Is?

From Genesis to Revelation we are see prophetic I AM references about the Messiah (which are quoted about Christ in the new testament. :7 in Genesis, 21 in Exodus, 7 IMG_7257in Psalms, 35 in Isaiah and 70 in Ezekiel), and in the New Testament, we hear from Jesus, using that same word Ehyeh (Hebrew – I AM THAT I AM)
Some say He was a good teacher, a rabbi, but would a good teacher say He had the power to forgive sin? Would a good teacher say HE was the ONLY way to heaven? Read on and answer the most important question of your life.
