INTRO: CAESAREA PHILIPPI

1: GENTILE TERRITORY

A) 120 MILES FROM JERUSALEM

B) A PLACE OF MANY DIFFERENT RELIGIONS

C) A MELTING POT

D) A BIG CENTER FOR BAAL WORSHIP

POINT: JESUS HAS HIS DISCIPLES IN A STRANGE PLACE WHERE THE LANGUAGES WERE DIFFERENT, THEIR WERE MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF PEOPLE AND WAYS OF LIFE. THEY DEFINITELY HAVE TO BE A LITTLE OUT OF THERE COMFORT ZONE.

2: THE DISCIPLES

A) MEN WHO LEFT EVERYTHING TO WALK WITH JESUS

B) THEY FORSOOK ALL

C) THEIR JOBS, FAMILIES, FRIENDS

D) NOW HERE THEY ARE IN THIS BIG PLACE WITH ALL THESE STRANGE THINGS AND PEOPLE

POINT: THEY BELIEVED THAT JESUS WAS THE MESSIAH OR AT LEAST A MIGHTY PROPHET, THEY HAD ALL SEEN AND EXPERIENCED WHAT HE COULD DO FIRST HAND. THEY HAD TOO HAVE HEARD A LOT OF GOOD AND BAD THINGS ABOUT THIS MAN THEY’VE BEEN FOLLOWING, SURELY THEY HAD THOUGHTS AND WONDERS OF THERE OWN.

BODY: JESUS ASKS

A) WHY ASK

B) WAS IT IMPORTANT

C) DID IT MATTER WHAT THEY SAID

D) WAS HE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THEY SAID

POINT: WE TEND TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY AND THINK OF US, SOMETIMES WE ASK PEOPLE CLOSE TO US WHAT THEY THINK. JESUS ASKS THESE MEN WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT ME, HE IS DRAWING THEM IN FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN JUST WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAID OR BELIEVED.

2: WHOM SAY YE THAT I AM?

A) PETER REPILES

B) THOU ART CHRIST

C) SON OF THE LIVING GOD

POINT: IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT JESUS IS EXPILICITLY REQUIRING A PUBLIC CONFESSION. PUBLIC CONFESSION IS WHAT PERFECTS OUR FAITH. AMONGST EVERYTHING AROUND PETER HE KNEW EXACTLY WHO JESUS WAS.

3: HOW DO WE SEE JESUS?

A) IS HE A RIGHTEOUS DUDE

B) OUR HOMEBOY

C) WAS HE A GREAT TEACHER WITH GREAR POWER

D) WHO IS JESUS TO US?

POINT: PETER SAID IT BEST HE IS THE CHRIST THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD, THE MESSIAH, THE REDEEMER, THE ONE WHO HAS TAKEN OUR SINS, PRINCE OF PEACE, KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS.

CLOSING: THE CHRIST

1: SAVIOR

A) NO MATTER WHAT IS HAPPENING

B) NO MATTER WHAT BEFALLS US

C) HE IS OUR SAVIOR

POINT: WE DON’T NEED ANYTHING BUT JESUS, WE HAVE TO GET OUR PERSPECTIVE TO THE POINT WHERE WE SEE JESUS JUST AS HE IS.

HE IS CHRIST
