The Gospels through the Summer, Day 27
Who was this man? Read Matthew 27.
In reading through this chapter, we see all the different ways that people are trying to identify who Jesus is. We see a lot of the assumption that people make about who he is as well. Accusations fly. Betrayals are made. Those by the cross of Jesus are witness to the power that he has even while dying. We see this exclamation made by the soldier because Jesus displays his power even while giving it up.
Who do you believe that Jesus is? That’s a question that gets asked a lot and yet it’s the wrong question. The question isn’t who we believe that Jesus is, the question we need to ask is who is Jesus. And then are we going to believe that? What we believe does not have any impact on what is actually true. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. There is no changing that.
Yet, we must understand the question becomes will we believe the truth? Will we accept Jesus Christ for who he truly is and believe the truth. Or will we continued to believe the accusations and betrayals that those people around us are constantly flinging about?
