Who is Jesus?

Free sample

Who is Jesus? is the most important question any of us must face. Our answer determines not only the way we live in this world but also our eternal destiny. This book asks Is Jesus God? Is Jesus Man? Is Jesus Lord? and Is Jesus Head of the Church? Previously published separately, the answers are now brought together in a single volume.

"Who is Jesus?" is the most important question which any of us must face. Our answer to that question will determine not only the way we live in this world but also our eternal destiny. This booklet sets out in a clear, understandable way the reasons why we should believe Jesus's claims to be the Son of God.

That Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical person is a well-attested fact. The evidence for His existence is greater than that for many historical figures, e.g. Julius Caesar. Yet many today would deny that He was truly Man. Because He is fully Man, yet at the same time fully God, He alone is the Saviour of the world.

"Why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46) are the telling words of Jesus. This booklet sets out the biblical view of the Lordship of Christ and challenges us to examine our response to His Lordship.

Who controls the church? In today's world, it is vital to have a biblical answer to this important question. The Lord Jesus is Head of His church, His body, controlling and directing it by His Holy Spirit. A church that does not answer to its Head is as lifeless as a headless body.

About the author

Cor Bruins
— has more than 40 years experience in the Lord’s service and in Bible study. Some of that time was spent in serving the Lord in Egypt and the Lebanon. During that time, he experienced at first hand the opposing views of other nationalities and religions on the person of Christ. He writes out of that experience.
David Pulman
— spent most of his working life with British Gas. Throughout this time, he was active in Bible camp work and in teaching and preaching. He took early retirement so as to have more time for the Lord’s service. He is currently engaged also in a literature ministry to third world countries.
Peter Ollerhead
— worked as a draughtsman at Rolls Royce Motor Cars in Crewe. He subsequently trained as a primary school teacher, teaching in the Staffordshire Potteries. Now retired, he spends his time in serving the Lord and maintains his interest in valuing and dealing in second-hand books, particularly in this area of the work of Scripture Truth Publications.
George Bell (1922-2004)
— was originally from Tyneside. His job as a college lecturer in engineering led him to West Drayton and then to Birmingham. In his later years he settled in Ipswich with his family. He was much respected for his manner of life and as a Bible teacher both locally and nationally.

His stories include: Being chased by a killer whale or being attacked by a huge octopus. Finding large amounts of gold and silver on sunken wrecks. Locating huge hauls of copper worth millions and tankers full of crude oil. Diving with Great White Sharks. Battling extreme weather conditions including Tsunamis. Fishing for strange and valuable creatures and breaking records while doing it. Frightening near misses and exciting rescues. Historic shipwrecks. Having done all these things, George Bell lives to tell the tale and vividly recounts his life underwater in over 100 short stories. The old man of the sea indeed: it is a title I bear with some pride after sixty years diving and fishing. Some people count their fingers; I count my lives. With a life spent, much of it on or under the ocean waters, which lap the exotic coastlines of South Africa; one has to rely on a certain degree of luck. You can call me the sea gambler if you wish. It wouldn t be too far off the mark. Those far southern climes are notorious for their massive ocean swells. After all, South Africa s coastline is shadowed by the world s mightiest oceans. The Indian Ocean, all the way to Australia, and the Atlantic, all the way to the Americas can both be tempestuous and fickle too. It is also home to many millions of sea life species that don t always see eye to eye with intruders from the one seventh of the earth they re unfamiliar with. To these creatures man s habitat is indeed an island and a small and insignificant one at that. Living and working on the surface and just under the skin of these great earthly creatures we call the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, one faces dangers and a colourful kaleidoscope of events on a daily basis. The nemesis of many a horror story, the killer sharks, are just another part of that great ocean s tapestry. It was quite a life gauntlet for me to run, but I survived the blows largely unscathed. In fact I survived to tell the tale; indeed with many tales to tell. The credit for my initiative in setting them down must include my grandchildren with their constant appeals to Papa, tell us a story. The difficulty was how to set it out, and not to repeat myself. I didn t like them saying O, we ve heard that one . Should it be a biography, a fictional novel based on a true story? Might it not be far better for reader and writer alike to skip the boring mess-room bits and sticking to the point in telling a 101 tales. Let that be the only exaggeration, but you will get my drift. You will also be assured that in the telling, you will not only read of my experiences; you will share them with me. I want you to feel the whip of the wind, the aroma of the seas and fill your lungs with the smells of the upper and lower decks. So welcome aboard shipmates; enjoy a life that only the few are privileged to experience. I would like to thank my daughter Carolyn, who started transcribing the first stories from my very rough notes. Later, when I had moved to Spain, my good friend Sarah Crosby was able to complete the difficult task.
