This Week's Bulletin Article


     It may seem like a simple, even silly, question to many of us. Who is Jesus? Was he a made-up person that a group of first century Jews would tell stories about in an attempt to persuade people to follow them? Was he a good man who had some wise and practical teachings? Was he a man with a heavenly message, a prophet? Or was he who he claimed to be - the Son of God?

     People around the world may answer this in a number of ways. An atheist or skeptic might agree with the first option. They may lump Christianity in with other ancient, pagan religions built upon fantastic stories and myths. Someone from an Eastern culture or philosophy might read the words of Jesus and admit that he was a wise man and very enlightened. Adherents to Islam, which accounts for approximately a quarter of the people on earth, will acknowledge Jesus as a prophet. However, all of the groups fall short in their understanding of who Jesus is.

     Matthew 16:13-17, Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven." (ESV)

     How do you answer the question? Your answer affects every aspect of your life. Not only that, it determines your destiny beyond this life. Do you dismiss him? Do you scoff and criticize like many did while Jesus was on earth? Do you appreciate some of the good sayings he gave us? Or do you bow in humble submission to the Lord of heaven and earth, the Anointed Son of the living God?
