Finding Jesus, The Way

Following Jesus as the Way means following His example and teaching. Jesus said:


"So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine" (John 8:31 NASB).


Jesus scolded the people of His day who claimed to accept Him as Lord, but disregarded His teaching.


"Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?" (Luke 6:46 NASB).


The Bible is the only dependable source of information about Jesus. Producers of films and authors of novels take many liberties in dealing with accounts about Him. Many parents and acquaintances who talk to us about Jesus have never made a serious study of the Bible. Preachers and teachers who have studied the Bible for years may add so many of their own opinions and philosophies that we can scarcely know what is from the Bible and what is not. The fact that they differ so widely is proof that many are mistaken. It is essential, therefore, that each of us make his own study of the original source of truth concerning Jesus.


Jesus In The Old Testament

The Bible is divided into two major parts: the Old Testament and the New Testament. The writing of the Old Testament was completed 400 years before Jesus was born, yet it contains many things about Him.


The Old Testament provides glimpses of Jesus in a pre-fleshly state. When God was about to create man, He said…


"Let Us make man in Our image..." (Genesis 1:26 NASB).


The word us is plural and is a reference to the other persons of the Godhead.


The New Testament identifies one of these persons as “the Word.”


"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being" (John 1:1-3 NASB).


The Old Testament predicts Jesus’ birth of a virgin.


"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel" (Isaiah 7:14 NASB).


The name Immanuel means “God with us” (Matthew 1:23).


The Old Testament even predicts the place of His birth – Bethlehem (Micah 5:2).


Jesus In The Gospels

The New Testament records the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. John testifies:


"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14 NASB).


Four writers give accounts of Jesus’ life. These accounts are commonly called The Gospels. The word gospel means good news. Each of the writers seems to emphasize something different about Jesus.


Matthew emphasizes His teaching, especially that concerning the “Kingdom of  heaven.”


Mark features the miracles of Jesus, showing His  power.


Luke stresses the perfect humanity of Jesus without detracting from His divinity.


John stresses the perfect divinity of Jesus without detracting from His humanity.


Though different, the gospels give a perfectly harmonious description of one person, the greatest of history – Jesus.


No one can know Jesus, the Way who has not read these accounts carefully. Reading them, we may well be surprised to find how far the real Jesus differs from the imaginary one who has been created in our minds by the misinformation so commonly circulated among us.


Jesus In Acts And The Epistles

The gospels do not contain all the teachings of Jesus. They report only the teaching that he did while on earth. This had to be limited to what His disciples could comprehend in the short time that He was with them. Before He left them, He told them of the arrangement by which He would continue to speak to them:


"I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you" (John 16:12-14 NASB).


The Holy Spirit came upon the apostles soon after Jesus returned to Heaven.


"And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance" (Acts 2:4 NASB).


This means that the preaching and writing of the inspired apostles, that we find in the remainder of the New Testament, are as much the teaching of Jesus as that which we find in the gospels. The apostle Paul wrote:


"If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord's commandment" (1 Corinthians 14:37 NASB).


No Other Revelations

The revelation of Jesus and His teaching in the New Testament is complete. The writers warn:


"But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!" (Galatians 1:8 NASB).


The apostle John also warns:


"I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book" (Revelation 22:18 NASB).


Old Or New Testament?

The Old Testament foretold and foreshadowed many things about Jesus, but it is in the New Testament that God speaks to us through Him.


"God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world" (Hebrews 1:1-2 NASB).


This means that we must go to the New Testament to learn how to follow Jesus. The Law is intended to bring men to Jesus.


"Therefore the Law has become our tutor {to lead us} to Christ, so that we may be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor" (Galatians 3:24-25 NASB).
