He is "Lord," "Saviour," "Lamb," "Lion of the Tribe of Judah!"
"Lord" appears 735 times in the New Testament.  "Saviour" appears 24 times!  
"Lamb" appears 35 times.  "Lion of the Tribe of Judah" appears only once.

He is God!
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (Jn. 1:1, 14).

He was worshipped!
Jesus was worshipped by the Magi (Mt. 2:11), by a leper (Mt. 8:2), by a Jewish ruler (Mt. 9:18), by His disciples (Mt. 14:33), by a Canaanite mother (Mt. 15:25), by the women who went to His empty tomb (Mt. 28:9), by some of His disciples (Mt. 28:17), by the demoniac (Mk. 5:6), by those who witnessed His Ascension (Lk. 24:52), by the man born blind (Jn. 9:38), by the four beasts and the twenty-four elders (Rev. 5:14).

He became a human being!
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross" (Phil. 2:5-8).

God wants all to receive His Son!
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Pet. 3:9).

"He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.  He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.  But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:  which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but (by the will) of God" (Jn. 1:10-13).

The Holy Trinity works together to save the lost!
"No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day" (Jn. 6:44).

"And I (Jesus), if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.  This He said, signifying what death He should die" (Jn. 12:32-33).

"Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth:  for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak:  and He will show you things to come.  He shall glorify Me:  for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you" (Jn.16:13-14).
