1. Introduction

For many years, Christianity has been one of the major religions of the world. It has influenced the lives of millions of people, but there are still millions more who have not believed it, or even heard of it. Modern philosophies are stating that people may have a free choice in their religion, as if it's a consumer item, but here we show how the Bible states that belief in Jesus is the only way to be accepted by God.

The vast majority of the information we have about the life of Jesus comes from the writings contained in the Holy Bible. They describe the life, purpose and importance that he had within the context of the purpose of God. Although Jesus is known from sources outside the Bible, these sources don't describe the message that he had, or grant him the authority that the Bible does. This means that in order to appreciate Jesus at the level he is described in the Bible, it is necessary to have confidence in the truth of the Bible itself. While the Bible is highly regarded in many circles, it's truth is certainly not something that is immediately obvious, or universally recognised. However, it does contain clear evidence to show that it is what it claims to be.

After considering the issue of the validity of the Bible, this paper looks at the life of Jesus and who he was known to be. Following this, there are the two central sections which look at how the Bible says that there is only one way to God, and what the consequences are. To sum up, the description of the salvation process in the Bible is considered.
