In this video, Fred Sanders shows how our trust in Jesus should be informed by who Jesus is in his humanity and deity.

Jesus is to be believed in because he is “God with us” (Matt. 1:23). He is God’s word to humanity (John 1:1, 14), and also, as fully human, he is the proper human response to God. There is one God and one mediator between God and man, as Paul says (1 Timothy 2:5). And what that means is that everything we need to know about God, everything that God has to say to us, is wrapped up, encapsulated and incarnate, in the person of Jesus Christ.
