You are the Christ (podcast) (Mark 8:27-35)

Open Mark 8:27-35 (ESV).

What do we mean when we say Jesus is the Christ? Is it merely part of his name? Or did Peter have something more in mind when he declared Jesus to be the Christ?

This is no minor matter. It goes to the heart of the Christian faith. It needs to be discussed in our churches, since Jesus’ identity and mission defines our identity and mission. So, how do we teach on this for a Sunday congregation?

This podcast (24-minutes) is from the message delivered to Riverview Church’s Joondalup campus on 8 August 2021.


What others are saying

Joshua W. Jipp, The Messianic Theology of the New Testament (Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans, 2020):

p.3: Jesus’s messianic kingship is something of a root metaphor, a primary designation and driving image for making sense of NT Christology. …

p.7: Each of them [i.e. each book of the NT] is a creative articulation of the confession that Jesus is God’s Spirit-anointed messianic ruler. … The New Testament’s central theological convictions and practices are rooted in the earliest Christian confession: Jesus is the Messiah.
