How do you get to know Jesus? By reading his life story. The Old Testament and the New Testament have Jesus in there. If you don’t know where to start, start with The Book of John. It’s right after Matthew, Mark and Luke. This is the first verses of the Book of John; my favorite verses!
John 1 (NIV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
And then a little further down…
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

That is ALL about Jesus!
Jesus = The Word
Jesus = The True Light
Jesus = Life
Jesus is the Son; who is also the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus always was and always will be.
And He loves us and wants us with Him forever.
