Poems about Jesus.
Each Sunday, I plan on taking a break from devotional-type writing to share an original poem.
WHO IS THIS MAN?
Who is this man?
By such mighty works are done by His hand
Is not He a carpenter
From the Nazareth land?
His teachings astonish
Where did He get such wisdom?
Where did He get these things,
Saying at hand is the kingdom?
There is His mother Mary
And His brothers Simon, Judas, Joses, and James
He has no honor in His hometown
But through the region He has much fame
Is it Elijah?
Is it John the Baptist raised from the dead?
Although many are not certain,
This is what He said,
“Before Abraham was, I am
I am the Bread of Life, the vine
The Good Shepherd, the Light of the World
One who can turn water into wine
Only I can forgive sins
And give my life as ransom for many.”
One like Him there has never been
Then He turned to me
As if all this did not suffice
“But who do you say I am?”
I replied, “There’s no doubt you are the Christ.”
