Who Is Jesus? Jesus is the savior. He is the one who gave up his life to forgive the sins of all humankind and to give all of us a second chance at life.

Jesus knew this most of his life, and was ready and willing to give up his life for us. Another thing people usually think about when they think about Jesus is that he is associated with miracles. He healed a blind man, healed a leper, turned water into wine, healed a paralyzed man, and so much more. When people think Jesus, they think of the man who walked on water.
