Of all the billions of people who have lived from the time of Creation to our present day, there is one person who stands out, unique above all of the rest. His name is Jesus. To fully explain Him is impossible. To ignore Him would be disastrous. To reject Him would be fatal.
In Matthew 27:22, Pilate posed the question, “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?” This is the most important question that an individual will ever answer in their lifetime.
We Need to Understand the Truth About the Savior
The eternal purpose of Christ was and is to seek and to save that which is lost.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
2 Peter 3:9 - The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Colossians 1:14 - In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Rom 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
