Who Is Jesus?

The ancient Greek writing traditionally called The Gospel of John is a testimony to the identity of Jesus. John 20:31 declares that it was written for a very specific purpose. It was John’s aim to convince us through ample evidence, to believe that Jesus is the Christ, and that by believing we may have life. If I could give the writing my own subtitle it would be, “Who Is Jesus?” John declares the identity of Jesus in so many ways! And then he gives ample testimony to support his claims.
