Heidelberg Catechism LD 11LORD'S DAY 11
29. Q. Why is the Son of God called Jesus, that is, Saviour?
A. Because He saves us from all our sins,1 and because salvation is not to be sought or found in anyone else.2
2 Is. 43:11; John 15:4, 5; Acts 4:11, 12; I Tim. 2:5.
30. Q. Do those believe in the only Saviour Jesus who seek their salvation and well-being from saints, in themselves, or anywhere else?
A. No. Though they boast of Him in words, they in fact deny the only Saviour Jesus.1 For one of two things must be true: either Jesus is not a complete Saviour, or those who by true faith accept this Saviour must find in Him all that is necessary for their salvation.2
2 Col. 1:19, 20; 2:10; I John 1:7.
