Who do men say that I am

"Who do men say that I am?"

Jesus asked this question of his disciples, yet it echoes down to us through the centuries. The question remains relevant to this day.

If you ask most people that are not Christian, they will tell you they think Jesus was a good man, a great teacher - perhaps even a prophet.

Would a good man concoct a lie which ensnared generations of people? Only a devious man would do such a thing.

Would a great teacher tell his followers, and the Jewish people, that He now fulfilled the law and was God incarnate? Only a lunatic would do so.

So, Liar or Lunatic - those are your only options, but certainly not that He was a good man and a great teacher.

There is a third option.

Jesus is exactly who He said He was, the bodily personification of God.

Accept the third option and you're faced with two choices - accept Him as God or not.

Peter answered the question of Jesus with "You are the Christ, the son of the Living God."

I'm studying Josh Mcdowell's book, Evidence that Demands a Verdict. I'll be writing some posts based on the book over the next few weeks.
