Jesus told us, through His writer John, who he was. He was sent to earth to fulfill a promise made to man in the Garden of Eden. He would crush the serpent and the serpent would in turn bruise Him. He would also provide for our earthly and spiritual needs. He suffered great humiliation as He walked the earth as a man, but He never lost sight of His mission. He came to save the world from the guilt of sin.
By His wounds we are healed.
He also tells us this, “Before Abraham was born, I am.” He is, He was and He always will be. Jesus existed at the beginning of time as part of the trinity of God.
