Christ

WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?

 

 And Jesus went on with his disciples to the village of Caesarea Philippi, and on the way he asked his disciples, “WHO DO MEN SAY THAT I AM?” And they told Him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others one of the prophets.”

And He asked them, “BUT, WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM?” Peter answered him,

“YOU ARE THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.”
