Who do you say I am?


And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Mark 8:29

Over the past two thousand years people have shown much curiosity about Jesus. From the experience his disciples had with him, leaving them with this question – “who is this man” to the speculations of his enemies trying to paint him as an imposter, a homosexual and a weirdo.

But the question Jesus himself asked in our title couldn’t be more pertinent or well placed. I don’t think anyone other than those who walked, talked, touched, and had their lives completely transformed by this Jesus could best answer the question.

Here are a few things they’ve said about him that truly explains who He is:
