If you want to know who Jesus is, search the Scriptures. He is present in every book from Genesis to Revelation.
“You search and keep on searching and examining the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and yet it is those [very Scriptures] that testify about Me; and still you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life” (John 5:39-40, AMP).
“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13, HCSB).
“Then beginning with Moses and [throughout] all the [writings of the] prophets, He explained and interpreted for them the things referring to Himself [found] in all the Scriptures” (Luke 24:27, AMP).
“Then He opened their minds to [help them] understand the Scriptures, and said, “And so it is written, that the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed) would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and that repentance [necessary] for forgiveness of sins would be preached in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem” (Luke 24:45-47, AMP).
“Now some Greeks were among those who went up to worship at the festival. So they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and requested of him, ‘Sir, we want to see Jesus'” (John 12:20-21, HCSB).
Like the Greeks who came to worship, may this be our cry, “We want to see Jesus.”
