Jesus is the Son of God

Here at Charlestown Road we are all about Jesus. He is our everything. It is essential that we come to believe in Him.

Jesus said

"I told you that you would die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am He you will die in your sins" (John 8:24).

In order for us to come to Jesus we must first of all believe that He is the Son of God. The New Testament declares over and over that Jesus is in fact the Son of God. When Jesus asked His disciples who they considered Him to be the only answer that He would accept was:

"You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" (Matthew 16:16).

The Ethiopian Eunuch declared:

"I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God" (Acts 8:36).

After Saul's conversion he:

 "proclaimed Jesus in the synagogues, saying, 'He is the Son of God'" (Acts 9:20).

There are several reasons to believe that Jesus is the Son of God.

His fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. 

The prophets declared that a Savior was coming. But not only did they say He was coming, they prophesied details of His life. There are hundreds of prophecies concerning events surrounding His birth, life, death, burial, and resurrection, and Jesus fulfills them all down to every last detail. That's no coincidence.

His sinless life.

Jesus is the only man to ever live a perfect, sinless life.  

"For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15).

"He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth" (1 Peter 2:22).

No one could say these things about us. We know that we have sinned many times. Jesus, however, never sinned.

His miracles.

Peter declared on the day of Pentecost:

“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst..." (Acts 2:22).

Jesus healed the sick, calmed the sea, and raised the dead. Only deity would have such power.

His resurrection.

Perhaps the greatest proof that Jesus is the Son of God is His resurrection. Paul wrote He:

"was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord"         (Romans 1:4).

There is overwhelming evidence that proves that Jesus is in fact the Son of God.
