Two of the most profound questions that were asked by Jesus to His disciples almost two thousand years ago was: “Who do men say the Son of man is? and who do you say that I am? (Matthew 16:13-16).
These two questions asked all those years ago are still relevant to us in 2020. There are many different views of who Jesus is from different denominations in the Christian world. The only Trustworthy source that we can go to is the Bible itself. One thing is for certain, just as Peter confessed that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the living God. Peter was Blessed by Jesus because it was revealed to him by His Father and not by any human being. The same goes for us. The Holy Spirit reveals Christ to us and reminds us of everything that Christ has said. John 14:26
As God, He has names like the Word who was with God and was God (John 1:1).
Mighty God, everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6) see also ( Isaiah 28:29- NIV) which also is called Almighty God, magnificent in wisdom.
Jesus is equal with the Father. when Philip said to Jesus, “show us the Father?” Jesus said to Him: ” He that has seen me has seen the Father.” (John 14:7-9). See also Philippians 2:6.
Mediator between God and man.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
