The name ‘Jesus’ means ‘God saves,’ and ‘Christ’ means the ‘Messiah’ or ‘Anointed Savior’ who fulfills all the prophecies of the Old Testament. In this episode, James explains how, in each Gospel, Jesus is introduced as the Divine Word became flesh to bring about a new creation so humans could become children of God, highlighting moments in Jesus’ life that demonstrate his mission and message from the Sermon on the Mount to Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection.

Jesus’ mission begins with a call to repentance — turning away from sin and embracing self-sacrificing love. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus, speaking with Divine authority, teaches how to think and value correctly and do the will of God. James takes us step-by-step through highlights in Jesus’ teachings.

Before Jesus begins his passion, he tells the apostles, “I give you a new commandment,” says the Lord. “Love one another as I have loved you. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (John 13:34-35). With his death, Jesus also gives the gift of his mother (John 19:26-27), and his identity is revealed to the world, “When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:54). Jesus’ love, passion, and resurrection conquer sin, allowing us the opportunity and a pathway to eternal life.
