This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
1 Timothy 1:15
The entirety of the gospel is found in one verse. In this post we will look at a small part of what God has declared to us in this verse:
“Jesus came into the world”
It is a historical fact that Jesus came into the world. Among countless other witnesses and accumulated information from other historical sources the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:6 that Jesus was seen by more than 500 witnesses before He ascended up into heaven in their presence.
The gospel of John Chapter 1 verse 1 tells us that Jesus (The Word) was in the beginning with God and in fact, He was God. Jesus willingly came into this word to give His life for the ransom for many by offering himself, without sin, as a sacrifice for all the sin of the world.
