Who is Jesus?

(corresponds to Follow Me workbook: Unit 7, Lessons 4, 5, 6)

One of the critical questions to answer about Jesus – is… who’s Son is HE? Is He David’s son… with royal blood and heir to the throne of Israel? Is He Joseph’s son, his flesh and blood, and just a nobody from Nazareth? Is He God’s Son, one with a divine nature?
