Heidelberg Lord’s Day 11

God the Son

29. Why is the Son of God called “Jesus,” meaning “savior”?
Because he saves us from our sins. Salvation cannot be found in anyone else; it is futile to look for any salvation elsewhere.

Mt 1.21; Heb 7.25
Isa 43.11; Jn 15.5; Ac 4.11-12; 1Ti 2.5

30. Do those who look for their salvation and security in saints, in themselves, or elsewhere really believe in the only savior Jesus?
No. Although they boast of being his, by their deeds they deny the only savior and deliverer, Jesus. Either Jesus is not a perfect savior, or those who in true faith accept this savior have in him all they need for their salvation.

1Co 1.12-13; Gal 5.4
Col 1.19-20; 2.10; 1Jn 1.7

From the Heidelberg Catechism.
