Who is Jesus?

It can be good to remind ourselves why we worship Jesus Christ. A comparison of verses about the LORD in the Book of Isaiah and Jesus Christ in the Book of Revelation shows us why Jesus deserves our worship as the divine Son. These would be helpful verses to show Muslims or Jehovah’s Witnesses who …
