Whom Say Ye that I Am?

Whom say ye that I am?
One of the most important questions a person can answer is “Who do you say Jesus is?”
The answer to this can determine your eternal destiny.

When Jesus walked on the other men had differing opinions on who He was and where He came from.
There were those that thought of Him as simple a regular guy. One who had grown up with His brothers and sisters and had an ordinary birth and life but grew to be an extraordinary man.

Matt.13:[55] Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

Some believed He was a resurrected prophet from the Old Testament sent to revive the nation of Israel to prominence and return their thoughts toward God Almighty.

Matt.16:[13] When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
[14] And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

Some thought He was indeed a prophet from the city of Nazareth.

Matt.21:[10] And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?
[11] And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

Some thought He was indeed from God but nothing more than a teacher to instruct the nation of Israel in the ways of God and to heal the nation.

John.3:[1] There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
[2] The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

It is important for us to know and acknowledge He is God in the flesh come to save us from our sins.

1Tim.3:[16] And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
