High priest in the Bible: Hebrews 4:14-16
Jesus is described as our "high priest"--meaning that he stands as a mediator between us and a God that we otherwise could not approach.
Savior in the Bible: 2 Timothy 1:8-10
In just a few sentences, Paul summarizes the significance of Jesus Christ: he died and rose again to bring God's grace to us.
"Created" in the Bible: Colossians 1:15-17
This passage clearly identifies Jesus as God, creator of the world. Jesus isn't "just" the son of God--he is God.
"Sick" in the Bible: Matthew 9:11-13
Why would a doctor spend time seeing patients who are healthy? Just as a doctor's job is to tend to the most sick and unhealthy people, so Jesus' ministry was focused on the most spiritually damaged people. That didn't sit well with religious leaders who thought that serving the downtrodden was beneath them.
"Son of God" in the Bible: Matthew 26:63-64
Was Jesus the Son of God? That might be the most important question in all of history, and it's answered here in this passage, where Jesus' accusers ask him directly whether or not he is the prophesied Savior.
Foundation in the Bible: 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
In this passage, Jesus is described as the foundation of our faith--the unshakable basis of every aspect of our faith. Christians are called to build upon that foundation through evangelism and discipleship--but nobody will ever replace the foundation that Jesus himself laid down.
"Son of Man" in the Bible: Matthew 16:13-20
The New Testament suggests that there were many theories and ideas about who Jesus really was. In this passage, Jesus asks the question point-blank to Peter, who confesses that Jesus is the Son of Man and the Son of God--the prophesied Messiah.
"Healed" in the BIble: Isaiah 53:5
Although Isaiah lived long before Jesus was born, this passage is a perfect description of the task Jesus would perform through his crucifixion: Jesus would take the punishment for our sins, and as a result we are restored.
Bread in the Bible: John 6:51-59
Just as the image of water is often used to describe the Holy Spirit and the offer of salvation, Jesus uses the image of bread to suggest the spiritual nourishment we receive when we follow him. Just as bread is needed just to sustain life, so a life separated from Jesus is bound to wither away from spiritual starvation.
"Jesus Wept" in the Bible: John:11.35
The shortest verse in the Bible, these two words speak eloquently about the humanity of Jesus Christ.
