Has anyone ever asked you, "Who do you think you are? What makes you an authority?"

"Who do people say that I am?" asked Jesus. How would people describe you? How do you want to be described? Nothing is more important than understanding who Jesus Christ is. This self-study lesson leads you to search Scripture for answers!

It is important to know how others view, or perceive, us!

Knowing this encourages us to strengthen our positive attributes and eliminate negative attributes from our lives.

  • If you were to describe whom you think Jesus is, what 4 or 5 words would you use?

  • When we study the Bible to learn more about Christ and who He is, we are studying Christology.

Bottom Line: Understanding the attributes of Jesus deepens our faith in God.

Let's take a look at who Jesus is by taking notes from the Who Christ Is: An Introduction document in Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar. Use the handout named Who Is Jesus? from the same location to take notes for future study.

  • How do the five descriptions of Jesus from your notes compare to the list you created above?

Create a Venn Diagram (see example) comparing which of your attributes are similar to or different from your notes:

When you are finished with your comparisons, continue on to the Got It? section to dig deeper into Scripture to answer some questions.
