John 5:39-40 says, “These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.”
Jesus said these words to the religious teachers of His day. They claimed to know all about faith and the Scriptures, but did not recognise Jesus as the Messiah that they were waiting for.
They had knowledge of the Scriptures, but missed the main person – Jesus.
Over the years I have known some very religious people who have studied the Bible, but they missed Jesus too.
So what are some keys we have to understand about Jesus?
- He is eternal (John 1:1-3)
- He is the Son of God (Luke 1:35)
- He is the Messiah (John 4:25-26)
- He died on the cross to pay the price for our sin (Romans 3:23-24)
- He was raised back to life and is now seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven (Romans 8:34)
- He is coming back for those who trust in Him as their Lord and Saviour (Hebrews 9:28)
- He is the only way to salvation (John 14:6)
These are seven things that are key about Jesus. It is just so important to understand who Jesus is and what He has done.

It is my hope and prayer that you will do these two things and you will go on to follow Jesus all the days of your life.
