Episode 3: What was it like to be with Jesus?

One day, Jesus asked his disciples, "who do people say I am?" There were lots of different answers about prophets, but none of them were right. Then Jesus asked, "who do YOU say I am?", and Peter answered, "you are God's Messiah".

'Messiah' means God's chosen king, sent by God to save all people everywhere - including you and me! Jesus is so much more than a prophet. He rescued us from evil by dying on the cross so we could be friends with God. How amazing!
