Christian faith

Jesus was a legend in his own lifetime. ‘Who is he?’ people asked. It's a question that is still asked and answered: people say he was a revolutionary, a magician, the Son of God, a guru, the founder of a world religion, the greatest person who ever lived…

As Christians we believe that Jesus was more than just a great teacher… we believe that He was in fact God in human form. This puts the life and teaching of Jesus into a completely different category to the life and teaching of other religious leaders. This has often been expressed by Christians by saying, "the teaching of Buddha and Muhammad contain important truths, but Jesus is the truth." As Jesus himself says in the Gospel of John: "I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except by me." Because of this, Christians also say that if you want to know what God is like, look at the life of Jesus – what he taught and what he did. You can read about it four books in the Bible, known as the gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
