In this post, we are going to look at the meaning of the bible verse Mathew 16:13-17 which says:
When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
Even up to the present day, so many people are having the problem of identifying who Jesus Christ really is.
For instance, Jesus is known as a prophet in Islam.
And so many Christians often blame them for seeing Jesus in that light.
But in our bible verse meaning for today, Jesus Himself makes it clear that people can only know Him as the Son of God if only the Father in heaven reveals it to them.
So if you have been given this revelation, don’t blame others who don’t; rather pray that God should reveal His Son, Jesus Christ to them.
