Learn: Matthew 16:1-28
When Jesus requested His disciples, “Who do individuals say that the Son of Man is?” they replied, “Some say John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; however nonetheless others, Jeremiah, or one of many prophets.” However Peter answered, “You’re the Christ, the Son of the residing God”
What set Jesus aside because the Messiah?

- His baptism: Although He didn’t want cleaning, Jesus requested John to baptize Him so He may establish with sinners and display His like to them.
- His temptation: Devil tempted Him relentlessly for 40 days, but He didn’t sin.
- His ministry: He challenged man-made non secular traditions.

Main Pharisees wished Him lifeless, however the Father protected His life till the crucifixion.
Many individuals deny Christ’s deity, calling Him merely a “prophet” or “good instructor.” However Jesus was by no means merely human. As complicated as it’s for us to understand, He was totally God and totally man. That is the distinctive manner during which our heavenly Father selected to display His everlasting love for us.
