Nearly 2,000 years ago Jesus asked the Pharisees, “What do you think of Christ? Whose Son is He?” (Matthew 22:42). This question perplexed many people. The general public was confused about Christ. Some thought He was Jeremiah the prophet, while others thought He was Elijah. King Herod thought Jesus was John the Baptist come back from the dead. For the most part, Jesus was thought to be the Messiah’s forerunner—a man with God-given miraculous powers—not the incarnation of God Himself.
