So many people carry on to deny Jesus and His teachings. What could be the reason they do? Can anyone point out the reason they should deny Jesus? Who can accuse Jesus of any sin or fault? Yet all have sinned except Him (Jesus)!
John 3:19 - 21
ESV - 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.

Who is Jesus? How do different people view Him? Some people recognized Him as simply a great teacher. Others recognize Him as the Son of God but will not agree He is God incarnate while others recognize Him as simply one of the prophets. Some deny Jesus is the Son of God and God incarnate. But despite all our differing views, what should the greatest resource be? Isn't it the Bible? Doesn't much of history rely on the content of the Bible a great deal? Much of it therefore will come from the Bible. For it has the best account of who Jesus is. Whatever book is written about Jesus sources its references in the Bible. If you therefore dispute what the Bible says about Jesus, then you will more often than not deny Jesus' personality. For the reason that we dispute Jesus and His divinity is not because we lack literature about Him, but it is because we insist to view Him from purely a carnal view rather than a spiritual one. What does the Bible say about Jesus? The clear truth is that many people deny Jesus not on account of ever having a found a single fault in Him, for there is none (John 8:46). Even at the point of judging Him for crucifixion, there was never a case to convict of (John 18:38). Most of whoever denies Jesus, they more often than not do so on account of the personality of Jesus. It could therefore be out of jealous and spiritual ignorance. On account of the following references of the person of Jesus, many people deny Him. How right are they? Son of God God Son of man Savior The Christ Son of God The Bible confirms this by what is written in (Mat 3:17), (John 14:13). Yet many people go on to deny He is the Son of God. They claim God is not human to give birth to humans. But neither does the Bible say Jesus is the Son of God in the human sense. For Jesus is the Son of God on account of being the word of God (John 1:1-4). Jesus had no biological earthly Father as it is to anyone else. God/The Christ Jesus as God is not very directly written about in scripture, yet if you go on to examine scripture more critically, you will realize there is implication Jesus is God. For example; Jesus never denied to be worshiped (Matthew 14:33). When the doubting Thomas referred to Him as Lord and God, Jesus never denied He is (John 20:28). Additionally, to refer to Jesus as the Christ is also equally to mean He is God, for the Christ means the ANOINTED ONE or THE ONLY ONE. Thus whoever disputes Jesus on this account simply misses the point. Son of man Not many dispute Jesus was Son of man, but on the shallow understanding that He was simply that. However, this was more for descriptive purposes than for actually to mean He was Son of man. For Jesus had put on flesh simply for the work He had come to do. For He appeared like any other human being yet He wasn't human in substance. For to save man, it required a deity as there couldn't have been any other besides God, and one in human flesh because Jesus had come to save humans. When Jesus identified Himself as Son of man, it was to mean; He took pride in us and loved us unconditionally (Mark 14:62). Savior Many People deny Jesus on this account. For they go on to believe there are alternatives to Jesus. Many say it couldn't have been Jesus alone to save billions of humans from the potential danger of sin. While because many view Him as simply a human being, they go on to argue a human being can't save a fellow human being. To a Christian though, this statement is true, because this is what confirms the deity of Jesus. Jesus is therefore God. For it required God to save the drowning humans (Luke 2:11), (Luke 17:10), (Mat 1:21). Yet despite all the denials and all that may be, Jesus remains the central figure in the life of every single individual. For Buddha was a very disciplined individual, yet there are no divine traces in Him. All fade away, yet Jesus remains undisputedly relevant in the lives of all. Jesus is the LIGHT, come to Him
