Who was this man Jesus really? Was he really the one he claimed to be, the son of the living God, or was he a charlatan, a cheater? Here we want to talk about what the scriptures of the Bible, written during the lifetime of most of his followers, tell him. We can be sure that these reports are correct, otherwise the contemporaries of the writers, especially the Jewish ruling class, would have vehemently protested that they did everything they could to fight Jesus. However, such a reaction is not known. It is also mentioned by no historian, whereas the life of Jesus is also witnessed outside the Bible.

Jesus himself was well aware of what we saw as the impossibility of his words and his whole being. So he said in this regard, for example once to his disciples (John 14:11):

“Believe me, that I am in the Father and the Father in me; if not, then believe for the sake of the works. “

So the works he did (and still does to this day) should testify that Jesus is indeed the one he claims to be: the Son of God who came into the world to pay our debt and bring us back to the Father’s communion in heaven. Therefore we would do well to remember these works. But we should also know that Jesus did much more miracles than the Bible says, as the apostle testifies to John (John 21:25):

There are many other things that Jesus did. But if one after the other should be written down, I think the world would not grasp the books to be written.

The life of Jesus in this world began with a miracle, his birth through a virgin, and so he also went out of our world back to the glory of the Father. Yet his whole life, from birth to ascension, was already foretold in the writings of the Old Testament long before with all his deeds.

Between these events Jesus did many signs and wonders which testify of him as the Son of God:
