Today we will look at a question Jesus asked His disciples. While Jesus was on earth, He taught many people. But most of those people did not understand who Jesus really was. So one day Jesus asked His disciples who people said that He was.
The disciples gave Jesus several answers. They said some people thought that Jesus was John the Baptizer, Elijah, Jeremiah or another prophet who had come back to life. Then, in Matthew 16:15-16, Jesus asked an even more important question. And, these verses include Peter’s important answer. “Then Jesus said to his followers, ‘Who do you say I am?’ Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.’” Peter gave the right answer to Jesus’ question. Jesus truly is God’s Son!
Think about people in the world today. Who do they say Jesus is? Some people think that Jesus never lived on earth. Other people think that He was just a good teacher. And some think that Jesus was a person who told lies and deceived people.
Jesus asks you the same question today. Who do you think Jesus is? I hope that you are like Peter and you will say, “Jesus is the Son of God!”
