Who Do Religions say Jesus is today?

“Muhammad described Jesus as a virgin born, miracle working Messiah, who would return in the last days to establish peace throughout the world.” But he also taught not to call the Messiah more than a man and that he could not die for sin.
The Message of the Prophets: Mohammad and the Messiah p.13-17

Christian Science teaches Jesus was a human and “Christ” a divine idea.
SH. 473:15-16

Jehovah Witness teaches Jesus is Michael the Archangel, God’s first great creation and the brother of Satan. The Truth Shall Make You Free p.49

as God is man may become.” The Articles of Faith p.430

Who Does The Bible Say He Is?

Colossians 1:15-18
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Jesus Is:
The Visible Image of God the Father (God In The Flesh)
The First (Preeminence and Position) Over All Creation
The Creator of Heavens and Earth
Before All Things
Who Holds All Things Together
The Head of The Church

John 1:1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 1:14
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Hebrews 9:13-14
13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

He Made Us Kings (Rulers) and Priest (Servants) To His God and Father

For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,

29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn (Preeminence and Position) among many brethren.
