Who Is Jesus Nazareth?

Jesus Himself

"Even if I bear witness of Myself, My witness is true, for I know where I came from and where I am going." (John 8:14)

"My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If anyone wants to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. (John 7:16-17)

The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming ... When He comes, He will tell us all things." Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He." (John 4:25-26)

"I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst." (John 6:35)

"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." (John 8:12)

"I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep." (John 10:7-11)

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26)

"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

No one else in the history of the world ever made such astonishing claims except, perhaps, lunatics. If Jesus was a lunatic, how did he start a movement that grew so quickly and has changed the course of world history for the better? If Jesus was a confidence trickster par excellence, what did he hope to gain? How could a liar of such epic proportions ever have made such an impact for good on the human race? If Jesus was a liar or a madman he could not have been the great teacher that most people say he was. Yet his teachings are great and good. There is only one credible but shocking alternative: he was who he said he was.
