Who do you say I am?

When Jesus arrived in the villages of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “What are people saying about who the Son of Man is?”

 They replied, “Some think he is John the Baptizer, some say Elijah, some Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”

 He pressed them, “And how about you? Who do you say I am?”

(Matthew 16:13-16)

  1. Matthew 16:16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 16:17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” (NKJV)

    1. A question we all must answer ourselves.
      CCT, to be in the place where this conversation took place was wonderful. To realize it was also the place just below where the temple to Pan stood, beside a deep cavern known as “The Gates of Hades” where sacrifices were thrown into the dark, was shocking.
