The Bible Christianity and Jesus
The birth of Christ is celebrated around the world today with not much thought of who Christ really is. After denying the Pharisees a sign as to proof of who He was, accept the sign of the prophet Jonah. And warning the the disciples of the leaven of the Pharisees. He asked a question that is still prevalent today.
(Mat 16:13) When Christ came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying,Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
The question still remains and men still attempt answers. But the true answer must come from the New Testament , written by men who walked with Him, and knew Him best, and who for that knowledge counted all things loss.
Myer Pearlman makes a good point about; The Testimony of the Disciples
No Jew ever made the mistake of thinking that Mosses was Divine; even His most enthusiastic disciples would never have dreamed of ascribing to him a statement like ," Baptizing in the name of the Father, and of Moses, and of the Holy Ghost." The reason is that Moses neither spoke or acted like one who coming from God, and sharing His nature. On the other hand the New Testament sets forth this miracle here that a group of men who walked with Christ, and saw Him in all His characteristic aspects of His humanity-and who later worshiped Him as Divine, preached Him as the power unto salvation, and invoked His name in Prayer. John who leaned on His bosom has no hesitation in speaking of Him as the eternal Son of God who created the universe (John 1:1,3), and relates without any hesitation or apology. We see Thomas who worshiped and cried with adoration, "My Lord and my God" (John 20:28). And Peter who had seen his master eat, drink , and sleep who had know Him to be hungry, and thirst. In short seen all sides of His humanity. Yet later tells the Jews that Christ is at the right hand of God; that he posses the Divine prerogative of imparting the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:33,36). That He is the only way of salvation (Acts 4:12), the Pardoner of sins (Acts 5:31), and the Judge of the Quick and the dead (Acts 10:43).
He is right!
Paul who was the apostle to the gentiles, describes Christ in Titus 2:13 as the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.
In Isaiah 6:1-5 Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up who's glory and holiness was so great he cried out saying I am a man with unclean lips in the mist of a people with unclean lips undone woe is me. The glory and holiness of Christ so effected him that that he saw himself destitute, undone, unholy, in a hell bound state and condition as he saw the seraphim's worship God crying holy holy holy over and over till one of them flew to him having a live coal off the altar and touched his lips and his iniquity was purged. John clearly tells us who Isaiah saw in (John 12:41). It was Christ high and lifted up and full of glory whom the angels worshiped.
