Who was Jesus?
Many thought He was one of the prophets who brought God’s word to the people. The people had seen His miracles and heard His teaching and that’s who they thought Jesus was. But Simon Peter knew Jesus was The Christ (The Messiah), the Living God.
The Jews thought that the Saviour would be someone who would physically rescue them from those oppressing them at the time. But Jesus came for a much greater reason. The eternal God (God The Father) sent Jesus (God The Son) into the world to save us. Jesus wasn’t just a man, he was God Himself. Our God is not a remote being, He lived among us. The disciples knew this.
Who is Jesus to you? We all have an opinion.
It is historical fact that a man called Jesus existed and did what was recorded in the Bible (and many other reliable documents).
Maybe you think He was just a good person. But this can’t logically be. He claimed to be the Son of God, if you don’t believe He was God, then you must believe He was a liar – not a good man. Or maybe He was a delusional lunatic claiming to be God? Again, not a good person. The only thing that rings true is that He must be who He claimed to be – the living Son of God. We know it in our hearts when we read about His life.
