Who is Jesus Christ? | Part 1

How Jesus Life Began

The life of Jesus began in the heavens as the unique creation of the Father.  John referred to him as ‘the Word.’

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.”
– John 1:1-2  

The ‘Word’ was not only a direct divine creation, but he was also a Creator in his own right, for the Father granted him the right to create his own universe:

“Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”
– John 1:3

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.”
– Colossians 1:15-16

In time, our Creator God, the Word, in some unrevealed manner, transferred his life into the body of a Jewish woman, Mary, and came to be born as a son of man:

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
– John 1:14

After his birth, the Word came to be known as “Jesus.” (Matthew 1:25)
