The Bible teaches that Jesus never changes.
Christians believe that Jesus is the same today as he was when he lived on earth; he is the same today as he was in the ‘olden days’, he is the same today as he was yesterday.
But what is it about Jesus that Christians believe stays the same? We know that he didn’t stay as a baby and we know that he didn’t stay on earth. Christians believe that the best way to find out what doesn’t change about Jesus is to take a closer look at his name.
The name ‘Jesus’ means ‘Saviour’, someone who saves. Christians believe Jesus will always be the Saviour. He saved yesterday, he saves today and those he saves will be saved forever.
Jesus is also called ‘Jesus Christ‘. The word ‘Christ’ means the Anointed One. The Bible teaches that Jesus is the Anointed One because the Holy Spirit is with him and upon him. Christians believe that Jesus was the Anointed One yesterday, he is the Anointed One today and he will always be the Anointed One.
