Who do Men Say That I Am?Series: Foundations
In Matthew 16 Jesus asks two questions:
- "Who do men say that I am?" The responses show that the people recognized Jesus as someone taking radical views, one who opposed the elite and spoke the truth.
- "Who do you say that I am?" Peter correctly names Jesus as the Christ.
Christ then uses the opportunity to speak to them of a hopeful future, one that we see realized in the Church.
Question, then: who do WE say that Jesus is?
