God created humans in the image of God himself. God created humans to have a close relationship with God. In Genesis, it states “ While God created all things, humans are the only creatures that God created in his image and that God breathed the breath of life into (Genesis 2:7) Human purpose was to obey God’s commands and spread the word of the lord by leading by example. Love each other as I have loved you. (1 John 4:19) God wants human to accept him into our lives and believe and have faith in God’s plan for us. What is the root cause of Human Problems? The root cause of human problems was evil, temptation and sin. After God’s creation humans experienced a fall. In Genesis 2 explained the beginning of the fall of mankind, God gave Adam and Eve a command that they can eat from any tree in the garden but not from the tree of knowledge for if you do you will surely die (Gen 2:16-17) A serpent appeared and tricked Eve into doubting what God had said. Which lead them to betrayed God’s commands. The disobedient and sin was the beginning of human problems. This first act of sin by Adam and Eve plunge not only themselves into sin and death but also all of the humanity. Human problems are the selfish act of rebellion often called the original sin. The only solution to human sinfulness is Jesus Christ. God will send Jesus to save all humanity from their sins. Jesus What is the True Identity of Jesus?

We learn the true identity of Jesus Christ through the four gospels of the New Testaments Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These gospels teach us of the life Jesus portrayed and all of his good work. Jesus of Nazareth, who lived in ancient Palestine roughly between 4 BC to 30/33 AD the son of God a man in flesh. God sent Jesus so the people can have a closer relationship with God, so we can relate to a man that we can see and relate with. Jesus was human that lived on earth and also God that taught the word of the lord to his disciples and preforming many miracles to prove to his people that God does exist. Jesus is not only the Son of God, but he is God the Father and Holy Spirit. Christians believe in the Trinity the belief of only one God but he exists in those three persons. The Father the son and the Holy Spirit. God’s plan for Jesus was to use his son to save all mankind from their sins by the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus. Jesus accepted God plan because God loved Jesus, and he put his trusts and faith in God that he would bring him back to life. What did Jesus Do? Jesus saved mankind from their sins. He was the ultimate sacrifice. He gave his life to us so that we will fully accept God as the Father almighty the creator of the heavens and earth. This was God’s plan from the beginning to sacrifice Jesus so all humanity would believe in and have faith in God, because God is the way of life and without God we would not be here. In John 2:2 states “Jesus is the atoning sacrifice of our sins, but not only for our sins but the sins of the whole world.” Why is the Identity of Jesus and His work Significant for the Christian Worldview?
