This is a question that millions of people Google every year. More than that, people have been asking this question since Jesus walked the planet 2000+ years ago. When Jesus was born, King Herod and the Magi were asking, ”Who is this baby?” The religious leaders of Jesus’ day were asking about Jesus, mostly because they couldn’t believe that a man would claim to be God. To them, Jesus was demonic, a liar, blasphemer, and a fraud.
Even Jesus asked this question to His disciples when he said, “Who do people say I am?” His disciples answered with, ‘Some say you are John the Baptist. Some say Elijah. Some say you’re another prophet.” To which Jesus replied, “But who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8:27-29). At the end of the day, the question Jesus asked the disciples is the same question he asks each of us today…”Who is Jesus?”
