How can I come to know Jesus?

The best way to get to know Jesus is by reading about Him in the New Testament, which is a part of the world’s most widespread book, the Bible. We can read what He taught, what He did while on earth, and read stories from people who knew Jesus and walked with Him. The Bible tells us of Jesus’s life, death and resurrection.

There are several letters that are written by the Apostles in the New Testament. These letters give us insight into what the first Christians and churches were like. These people hadn’t necessarily met Jesus personally but they knew Him; they had read and heard about Him.

Even today there are people who know Jesus. You can find them in churches: where people gather together to learn more about the Bible, to pray and to have communion. Find a church and go to one – you won’t just meet people who know Jesus but you can get to know Jesus for yourself.

Jesus answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. If anyone's will is to do God's will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.
(John 7:16-17, ESV)

Jesus, I want to have a relationship with you. Make yourself known to me!
