Jesus is …

JP: Good read by The Irish Calvinist. All verses from Colossians 1.

who Jesus is … is obviously quite important for believers, as we are always in the need of theological reform. But this is even more necessary in light of the fact that we live in a culture that portrays Jesus in many different ways. Though he is mentioned frequently, Jesus is rarely portrayed correctly.
