Discovering The Jewish Jesus

Who Do You Say Jesus Is?

Beloved, the most significant and consequential question that Jesus asked is:

“But who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15)

Few doubt whether Jesus actually lived and walked the streets of Jerusalem. In fact, if you go to Israel today, you will see all the evidence that archaeologists have uncovered regarding Jesus, supporting the accounts that He existed. But who was He and who is He?

Is He a liar, a lunatic, or the Lord?
(C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity)

Some consider Jesus a liar; that He told people things that were not true about Himself. Beloved, for this to be true, we would have to conclude that all the Old Testament prophecies that He fulfilled were false and that all the writers of the New Testament were duped.

But Peter said: “… We did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.” 2 Peter 1:16

Could He have been a lunatic? In other words, did Yeshua think that He was somebody that He was not? Did He have delusions of grandeur? Did He imagine Himself to be the Messiah because He was out of His mind? Again, overwhelming evidence proves otherwise. The greatest of which are the numerous eyewitnesses to His resurrection.

“After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep.” 1 Corinthians 15:6

Encountering Jesus after His resurrection:
Mark 16:9
Matthew 28: 5, 6, 9
Luke 24: 6, 7, 13-31
Luke 24:34
John 20:18, 19
John 21:1
Acts 1:9
1 Corinthians 15:7, 8

The only sound and logical conclusion is that He was who He said He was, and is who He said He is—Lord, Messiah, risen Savior, and soon returning King!

“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12

When people refuse to accept that Jesus is the only way to the Father, and believe that being a good person is the only requirement for eternal life—they are sadly deceived and have no way for their sins to be forgiven.

Beloved, we need to be prepared and be bold in proclaiming the truth of who Jesus is to those that have not accepted Him as their Savior.

Time is short, be encouraged to go through the Bible Study below to equip you to boldly lift up His name.
