When Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do people say that I am,” He received a variety of responses, none of which were correct (Mark 8:27-28). When He asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am,” Peter responded correctly, saying, “You are the Christ” (Mark 8:29). If posed this same question, how would you answer, and what would be the basis for your response? Let’s revisit the identity of Jesus by asking, “who did Jesus say He is”?
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
