Who is Jesus? The question is too big to ever truly answer, but here is a short description of Him from each book of the Bible. I heard this several years ago and could never find it on the internet. However, a dear friend of mine emailed it to me and I’ve modified it a bit so I can’t take credit for the original idea or much of the analysis. Rather, some unknown soul is to be credited for these descriptions:
