Jesus Christ is not a person from history that influenced society. He was and is and will always be Savior, King, and Lord. The question is what is He to you? We all are building a house (our life) but on what foundation are we building on; religion, our own good works, the things of this world, our education, government? Jesus asked His disciples who He was and Peter spoke up and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of God." Jesus, replied that, "flesh and blood", meaning man's intellect didn't deduce that was who He was, but God almighty revealed it to Peter and upon that revelation knowledge He, Jesus would build His church and He has.
