Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church: Catholic Sunday Homilies

Why Didn’t Jesus Just Tell Us He is God? (Mk 8:27-35) (24 OT)

September 16, 2018

In the Gospel for the 24th Sunday of Ordinary time, Jesus asks us "Who Do You Say I AM?" We all must answer this question, not only with words, but with our life.  Many claim that in the Synoptic Gospels Jesus never claims to be God. This is not true. This homily, with help from a book by Brant Pitre called "The Case For Jesus", we can see Jesus does claim to be God. But why didn't he tell us more directly? Because we humans do not understand the ways of God, and Jesus had to first teach us what the Kindom of God really is about. How are you answering this important question: "Who Am I?"
