Just Who is He, Anyway?

Was he, or wasn’t he?

Some thought Jesus was John the Baptist or Elijah or Jeremiah come back to life.

Peter, however, acknowledged Jesus as “the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus commended Peter for this confession (Matthew 16:13-17).

Many today speak of Jesus as a great moral teacher, but no more than that.

But does it make sense to ascribe greatness to Jesus while at the same time rejecting who He claimed to be?

Check it out for yourself!

If you’re not sure what to make of Jesus, why not read the Gospel of John with an open mind?

Then decide.

Discerning the Difference

Missing dog

I had begun my morning walk when a man asked if I had seen his Rottweiler. Someone had reported a black dog running with a Dalmatian. Soon after, I spotted the pair. I called them and they came to me.

When the man returned, I pointed to the black dog. “Nice try,” he said. His dog was about twice its size.

Accept no substitutes!

Mistaken identity. It happens all the time. Often error appears remarkably like truth. But counterfeit is not truth—all the more dangerous because it resembles truth (Galatians 1:6-9).

The owner obviously knew his dog from others. Do we know the Scriptures well enough to distinguish truth from any error that just might come along?
