A common discrepancy I hear a lot is that Jesus never said he was the Son of God, the Messiah, and that this claim only came from what others said about him. Yet, when looking through Jesus’ words in the New Testament, he did in fact make this claim several times. Why else would they be trying to kill him?
Matthew 26:62-65, 27:11 ~ Jesus faces the Sanhedrin and Governor
The phrase “You have said it.” is an affirmation of oath, meaning “That is true.”
I have heard two testimonies this week from ordinary people – one local and one from the other side of the world. Both witnessed seeing Jesus in a dream or vision confirming to them that He is the Messiah, the Son of God. “You have said it,” they said.
