Jesus, The Son Of God

Peter said that he and those with him were eyewitnesses to the majesty of Jesus. They saw Him with their own eyes and they saw Him perform miracles as well as rise from the dead. Not only did they see Jesus do amazing things, but they heard something amazing about Him as well. Peter wrote:

He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. – 2 Peter 1:17-18 (NIV)

God the Father confirmed Jesus’ status as the Son of God in an event known as The Transfiguration. Peter and his fellow disciples heard the voice of God. The Father identified Jesus as His Son, said that He loved Him and basically said He was proud of Him. Jesus’ identity as the Son of God was verified on that sacred mountain. We can take Peter’s word for it. Jesus is the Son of God and He is our Savior.
