Jesus' mission was to tell a new truth about God. When Jesus was on earth, his mission was to reveal anew to mankind the loving nature of God. And that revelation that Jesus lived constituted the fourth revelation of epochal significance to our planet. Jesus WAS God made visible to mortal eyes, while at the same time living the life of a mortal creature like you or me, which is why his incarnation on earth has so much meaning and value even after 2000 years. Jesus often said that "He who has seen me has seen the Father."

These selections from The Urantia Book will help you understand more about the revelation of God that was Jesus of Nazareth.

Jesus' Essential Gospel

"I have revealed God as your Father in heaven; I have revealed you as the sons of God on earth. It is a fact that God loves you, his sons. ... Sonship with God, by faith, is still the saving truth of the gospel of the kingdom."

Jesus, The Urantia Book, (193:0.3)

Mankind Redeemed

Jesus lived on earth and taught a gospel which redeemed man from the superstition that he was a child of the devil and elevated him to the dignity of a faith son of God.

God's Forgiveness and Love

Why Was Jesus Here?

The Master came to create in man a new spirit, a new will—to impart a new capacity for knowing the truth, experiencing compassion, and choosing goodness—the will to be in harmony with God's will, coupled with the eternal urge to become perfect, even as the Father in heaven is perfect. 

The Urantia Book, (140:8.32)
