Is Jesus the Savior of the world?
Yes, Jesus is the Savior of the world.

In the New Testament Gospels, the angels declared Jesus to be the Savior: "The angel said to them, "Don`t be afraid, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people. For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:8). Read the full story here.

His mother, Mary, recognized Him as the Savior, as seen in Luke`s biography of Jesus: "My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior, for he has looked at the humble state of his handmaid. For behold, from now on, all generations will call me blessed" (Luke 1:46).

The Samaritans who heard Jesus speak also recognized Him as the Savior: ". . . for we have heard for ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world" (John 4:39-42).

Jesus affirmed again and again that He is the Savior. He affirmed this by fulfilling the Old Testament prophesied that pointed to a Savior. He fulfilled each prophesy to a tee. And He confirmed He was Savior in the following statements in the Gospels.

Jesus agreed with Peter`s declaration that Jesus is the Messiah and Son of God, thus the Savior (Matthew 16:15-17, Mark 8:29-30, Luke 9:20-21).

Jesus also told the high priest that He is the Son of God and the Messiah, thus the Savior (Mk 14:61-62, Mt 26:63-64, Lk 22:70).

Yes, Jesus is the Savior of the world. But not everyone will be saved. Only those who put their trust in Him to receive Him as Lord and Savior will be saved. This means that those who recognize that Jesus is God`s Son and who turn to Him in sorrow over their wrongdoing, they will be saved.

Is Jesus the Savior of the world?
Yes, Jesus Christ is the savior of the world. Thatís what the Bible message is all about. However, the Bible also cautions us to look out for false Christís who will come in His name and deceive many (Mark 13:6). Could it be that the Roman Catholic Trinitarian Jesus who changed the seventh day Sabbath command (Ex. 20:8-11; Mark 2:28) to the first day Sunday, and who changed Passover commemorating the death of Christ (Numbers 9:2-5; 1 Cor. 5:6-8), to Easter commemorating the resurrection of Christ, is a false Jesus that will not and cannot be the savior of the world?
