JESUS IS THE SON After hearing what other people said about Jesus, He asked His followers "BUT WHO DO YOU SAY I AM?" [Mt 16:15]  Then Peter replied "You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the Son of the living God" [Mk 16:16 AMP]. The word in Hebrew "Messiah" meaning the one who is Anointed is translated in the Greek bible as Christ. King David was anointed and many people in Jesus' day were looking for a savior or Messiah like King David who would save them from ungodly rulers.  Instead, they got a better deal, a savior who would save them from their sins and eternal death, if they believed Jesus and obeyed Him. Peter revealed that Jesus was more than a physical savior when he included the words "the Son of the living God". Jesus affirmed Peter's response and stated excitedly "MY FATHER IN HEAVEN SHOWED YOU WHO I AM" [Mt 16:17 IC]. Jesus says “I AM THE SON OF GOD” [Jn 10:36 NAS]. Who do you say Jesus is?
