Jesus Saves – Jesus is the Savior
Jesus the savior is an eternal revelation.
For all eternity, Jesus the savior will be honored, proclaimed, worshipped and everlastingly more.
The name “Jesus” in Hebrew literally means “God saves.”
God sent Jesus to save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).
Jesus came to the earth to seek and to save that which was lost (Matthew 18:11, Luke 19:10).
Jesus spoke and revealed truth to the people, that they may be saved (John 5:34). Jesus spoke and said what the Father commanded and told Him to speak and say (John 12:49-50).
Jesus is the bread of life. The Father sent Jesus from heaven to give life to the world. Jesus gave His body on the cross and died for the world. If anyone eats Jesus’ flesh, he will live forever. As the living Father sent Jesus, and Jesus lives because of the Father, so he who eats Jesus’ flesh will live because of Jesus (John 6).
Jesus is the door. If anyone enters by Him, he will be saved, and will go in and out freely and find pasture and spiritual security (John 10:9, NKJV & Amplified).
Jesus is the good shepherd (John 10:11). He laid down His life for His sheep. He came to the earth that His people might have life and have it to an abundance, to the full, until it overflows (John 10:10).
Jesus did not come to judge the world. Jesus came to save the world (John 12:47).

God sent His Son to the earth as a man (John 6).

When Jesus died, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth quaked, and the rocks were split. The graves were opened. Many of the saints bodies were raised. And coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into Jerusalem and appeared to many (Acts 1).
Jesus was buried and descended to the underworld.
He preached and proclaimed to the fallen angels in prison (Tartarus). He disarmed principalities and powers. He made a public spectacle of them. He triumphed over them in His victory on the cross (1 Peter 3:19, Colossians 2:15).
He rose from the dead.
He laid down His life and took it up again. He received that command from the Father (John 10:18).
He lived 40 days on the earth.
He presented Himself by many unmistakable proofs. He spoke to His apostles of things pertaining to the kingdom of God (Acts 1:3).
He appeared to Peter and His disciples. Then He was seen by more than 500 brothers at one time. He was seen by James, then by all the apostles, then by Paul (1 Corinthians 15:6).
He told His apostles to wait for “the Promise of My Father.” Jesus said, “. . . John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now” (Acts 1:4).
He ascended to heaven.
As the apostles watched, “He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight” (Acts 1:9).
Then. the apostles saw two men in white clothing, who said: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven” (Acts 1:10-11).
Jesus was with the Father in heaven.

Jesus Christ is the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
The only true God and His glory fills the heavens, the earth and the universe.
He who believes in Jesus has eternal life.
