Matthew 16:13-17 NKJ
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.”
JESUS IS GOD!
John 1:1-3 NKJ
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were
made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was
made.
John 1:14 NKJ
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and
truth.
Who Is Jesus?
Colossians 1:15-20 CEV
Christ is exactly like God, who cannot be seen. He is the first-born
Son, superior to all creation. Everything was created by him,
everything in heaven and on earth, everything seen and unseen,
including all forces and powers, and all rulers and authorities. All
things were created by God’s Son, and everything was made for him.
God’s Son was before all else, and by him everything is held
together. He is the head of his body, which is the church. He is the
very beginning, the first to be raised from death, so that he would be
above all others. God himself was pleased to live fully in his Son. And
God was pleased for him to make peace by sacrificing his blood on
the cross, so that all beings in heaven and on earth would be brought
back to God.

  1. Jesus is THE IMAGE OF THE INVISIBLE GOD.
    Colossians 1:15 NKJ
    He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
  2. Jesus is THE SOURCE OF ALL CREATION.
    Colossians 1:16-17 CEV
    Everything was created by him, everything in heaven and on earth,
    everything seen and unseen, including all forces and powers, and all
    rulers and authorities. All things were created by God’s Son, and
    everything was made for him. God’s Son was before all else, and by
    him everything is held together.
    Colossians 1:18 CEV
    He is the head of his body, which is the church. He is the very
    beginning, the first to be raised from death, so that he should be
    above all others.
  3. Jesus is the ONLY WAY TO BE RECONCILED TO GOD.
    John 14:6 NKJ
    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one
    comes to the Father except through Me.”
    Colossians 1:19-20 NLT
    For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through
    him God RECONCILED everything to himself. He made peace with
    everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the
    cross.
