There have been many false views of Jesus throughout history, from noble example to political revolutionary. Yet to imagine a Jesus who was not the Savior is as foolish as to imagine a Shakespeare who was not a writer, or a Rembrandt who was not a painter. His name is Jesus not because He is our example, guide, leader, or friend, though He is all of those things. His name is Jesus because He is our Savior.
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 ESV
