1 “Whom Say Ye That I Am” Matthew 16:13-16

2 Matthew 16:13-18 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. 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 Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

3 Names Applied to Jesus Jesus is referred to in scripture by many names! Some names given by His enemies! Some names given by His disciples! Some names given by Divinity! Some by Jesus Himself! Other names describe Him! Names indicate how he was regarded! The same is true today. Many call us names that indicate their view of our character.
