The Bible makes the following statement about Jesus in the opening verse of the gospel of Mark.
The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.
Mark declares that the life of Jesus brings good news to us. Jesus is the Messiah. The Hebrew word 'Messiah', means 'anointed one'. This word is translated as 'Christ' in Greek. In ancient time kings were anointed with oil as a sign of their kingship or rule.
This king is also 'the Son of God'. Jesus was sent by his Father in heaven to establish the kingdom of God. This kingdom will last forever.
A Christian is a disciple or follower of Jesus. Christians place their faith or trust in the person, works and teachings of God's Son, Jesus Christ.
John 3:16-17 (ESV)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him."
The name Jesus, is derived from Joshua which means "God is salvation"
Acts 4:12 (English Standard Version)
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
The best place to read about Jesus is in the New Testament gospel accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
