When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. Mattthew 16:13-14
Jesus presented Himself as the son of man. He was a son of a woman. Mary is a human being like us. She carried on her womb a fetus implanted by the Holy Spirit. Though He was borned by woman, He was not a man like us. Jesus Christ is a supernatural Being who dictates His destiny. The Son of Man rose up from the grave after three days. The Son of Man can also forgive men of all of three sins.
The gospel is filled with the term, “the son of man”. Jesus used that term many times to reveal Himself and his mission. When He says that He is the son of man, it does not necessarily mean that He is a man like us. He was a son of a man/woman of the human race but worked the work of His Father in heaven. He can do what His Father does.
It was the Father God who revealed the true identity of Jesus Christ through Peter. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. The revelation came not through the flesh and blood, not through formal education.
He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 15-17
Who is Jesus Christ to you? What do you think?
