Jesus doesn’t say He is just one more prophet or just a great philosopher of moral teach. He says He IS THE TRUTH.
He doesn’t say there are many ways to God. He says HE IS THE WAY.
He didn’t say just having a good life will get you to Heaven. He says HE IS THE LIFE.
And let’s take a look where He says.”Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.”
If anyone says who Jesus says He is, if He isn’t God Himself, then He would be committing the highest form of blasphemy deserving crucifixion. But we know that Jesus is LORD.
We know that our One Father, our LORD, tells us, “I am the Lord, and besides me there is no Saviour.”
And since Jesus Christ is our Saviour “I did not come to judge the world but to save the world,” we know He is the LORD because He tells us He is the Saviour whom can by the LORD’s Word is the only One who can be the Saviour.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is not merely a higher prophet or teacher, the way in which He lives in the will of God is full of Grace and Divinity.
He came as the Saviour, as the Saviour of all men. He came as the good Shepherd, to seek and save that which was lost. He came to save all men, not only those who lived on the earth while he was here, but all who lived before, and all who have since lived, and all who shall live. Jesus gave himself a ransom for all; he tasted death for every man; and unto him, at last, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess him Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Such is the way in which Jesus does the will of God.
