The Real Jesus
Pastor Jamie Wright * June 12, 2005 * MFC
13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" 14 So they said, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" 16 Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
Vs 13 Jesus asked the question, “Who do men say that I am?”
Vs 14 Some have said He was a liar
Some have said He was a lunatic
Some have said He was a looser
Some have said He was lawless

"Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. Mark 8:34
He gives life to the lifeless, hope to the hopeless and help to the helpless.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
