Q & A
Jason Nelson

We want answers. We go to school to learn answers. We are tested to make sure we know the right ones. Some people have an answer for everything. But the right questions can have more impact than all the right answers.

Jesus was superb at asking the right question. One time he asked Peter, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” (Matthew 16:13). It was a good question by a misunderstood Messiah. Then he followed with an even better question: “Who do you say I am?” (verse 15). He made the question unforgettable by making it personal. Peter gave the right answer, but I suspect he never stopped thinking about the question and spent the rest of his life discovering even more relevant ways to answer it.

That question is the drumbeat of our lives. Who do we say Jesus is? We are always in the process of answering it. In childhood we see Jesus in simple truth (cue: “I Am Jesus’ Little Lamb”). He loves us and keeps the monsters under the bed. The battles of being working adults force us to elaborate on our answer as we try to manage overwhelming responsibilities (cue: “Fight the Good Fight”). And in old age we can strip it down for eternity because we are ready to focus on what matters most (cue: “What Is the World to Me?”).

The final exam has one good question: Who do you say Jesus is?
