Consider Jesus: The Holy One

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

From the beginning to end, Jesus was the holy one of God.  Before His birth, He was “the holy Child [that] shall be called the Son of God.”  (Luke 1:35) and so at his birth, he was the “holy child” conceived by the Holy Spirit. (Matt. 1:18-20) 

In the beginning of his ministry, he was acknowledged by the frightened demons as “Jesus of Nazareth…I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” (Mark 1:24 and Luke 4:34) 

His truest friends acknowledged the same thing. “Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.”” (Jn. 6:68,69)

Peter would later pray to God, twice acknowledging Jesus as “Your holy servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:27,30) He was preached as the God’s “HOLY ONE” who would not “UNDERGO DECAY” (Acts 2:26,17; 13:35)   

In the epistle who are taught to the priesthood and blessings of Him as the holy one. “For it was fitting for us to have such a high priest, holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners and exalted above the heavens” (Heb. 7:26) “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.” (1 Jn. 2:20)

And finally, He gave this testimony of Himself in His message to the church in Philadelphia: “He who is holy, who is true…” (Rev. 3:7)
