Christ was not merely an ordinary person like others, but He was the Holy One sent from God, whom God promised to send long ago. He is the Word of God made human, and a spirit from Him, and the Lord Christ is considered a unique character in the history of mankind.   Life of Christ. The life of Christ reveals that Jesus was and is God because of His miracles, wonders, teachings, His very unusual life, His crucifixion, resurrection and ascension back to heaven.
