Who Is Jesus To You?
Background Scriptures: Hebrews 1:1-14; Matthew 16:13-20
- Gods Final Word (Hebrews 1:1-4)
- Peters Confession (Matthew 16:13-20)
- Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection (Matthew 16:20-23)
III. Summary (Apply the lesson to life)
Biblical Content Emphases:
- God has spoken many times and in many ways; in the latter days God has spoken through a Son (Hebrews 1:1-2).
- The Son, the reflection of Gods glory and the sustainer of all things, has made purification for sins and is superior to angels (Hebrews 1:3-4).
- When Jesus asked His disciples who the people said He was, they reported John the Baptist, Elijah, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets (Matthew 16:13-14).
- Jesus then asked them who they thought He was; Simon Peter answered, You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God (Matthew 16:15-16).
- Jesus said Peter was blessed because his revelation came from God and therefore in this rock Jesus would build His church (Matthew 16:17-20).
- As Jesus began to foretell His crucifixion and resurrection, Peter protested and was firmly rebuked (Matthew 16:21-23)
The lessons should not be preachy but should be written with as much clarity as possible. The main purpose of the lesson is to guide and instruct.
