Over the years, people have tried to answer this mysterious question about who Jesus is ? Some say he is a prophet, some say he is just like any other servant of God that came to the world, or one of the prophets. Others have said he is a social revolutionist who wanted to overthrow the Roman’s regime and to discredit the laws of Moses and the prophets of old, thus establish his own empire. Some have said he was an usual rabbi(teacher) whose teachings was blasphemy against God and the church. Some thought, they knew him so well that all they had to say about him is that, he is the carpenter’s son from a small and insignificant town called Nazareth.
While in the region of Caesera Phillipi, Jesus asked his disciples, who do men say I am?. And after they had said a whole lot about what they have heard people say he is, Jesus asked them further, ” But who do you say I am?” “You are the Christ, the son of the living God”, Simon Peter answered. With this answer, Jesus knew it was a revelation unto Simon Peter; He could not have known unless it was revealed to him by the father in Heaven.(Matthew 16: 13-17), Mark 8:27-30, Luke 9:18-21).
The demon-possessed man of Gerasenes in Mark 5 fell on his knees and confessed about who Jesus really is, He said, Jesus, son of the Most High God.
There is every proof that Jesus is the Christ, that was prophesied and talked about by the prophets of old. Simeon, as servant of God was very old and weak but upon revelation had to see the Christ before he dies. This revelation and prophesy was fulfilled when baby Jesus was presented in the temple. These were the words of Simeon as he took him on his terms, ” Sovereign LORD, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for the glory to your people, Israel” Luke 2:29-32.
Jesus lived a life devoid of sin. He was without blemish. At his commands, demons flee, storms calmed. He healed the sick and raised the dead people to life. Jesus forgave sins with great authority. He taught mysteries. Jesus was hanged on the cross; He died and rose again. His death united two rival kings. He conquered death and satan. Jesus saved the world. He fulfilled the prophesies about the Christ . He controlled nature like the God He is. There couldn’t have been any better Christ than this Jesus. Jesus is the Christ. He is real and lives today and will live forever more.
