Favorite book of the Bible

Mine would be John's Gospel.

It challenges us to determine whether we believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of Jehoviah God, God incarnate or if he was a prophet.

Quite Frankly

In my early christian walk it was John, but now it seems Acts takes on a whle new meaning with it's transition from the Jewish church to to the universal. But overall with the parabolic teachings the such as the Beatitudes, the enormous proofs of the resurrections and the proclamation of "Thou art the Christ.", it has to be Matthew.

Actually, it's the entire conversation that Christ is having w/ his disciples at this point when the proclamation is made. The second part of that statement, Son of the living God illustrates that Jesus was God and man. Something so unfathomable that many even with in the early church and some "cults" struggle w/ today. Personally, the forgiveness of the thief on the cross and the conversion of the apostle Paul nails the point (no pun intended) home for me. When you change the adversary (Paul) into an ambassador, obviously you've done something right making ...thou art the Christ....something to build on. I think that would make a great title for a sermon
"Something to Build On",plus there's a parable that illustrates it perfectly.Thanks for the question,sorry for the lengthy response,but hey,you asked. LOL.

This one of my favorite passages as well.  So much is said here.  For me, all the bible, all the world, past, present and future hinges on one moment in time when Christ lived, died and was resurrected.  Everything that is, is contingent on Him.

So He says to His disciples, who does everybody else that I am.  What's important about that question is that Jesus does not ask any of us, nor does He care what "other" people say about Him.  He was not asking what the local gossip was on Him.  He is only concerned with our personal relationship with Him.  It was a set up question to drive home a point.

The second question is the real question.  "Who do YOU say that I am?"  He put them on the spot.  They knew that He was asking them to make a stand.  Right then and right there.  They knew the prophesies of Messiah.  They had been in the temple and made sacrifices.  They practiced Passover and Feast of First Fruits and Pentecost and so on.  They had a real grasp on the Ten Commandments.  They understood the seriousness of blasphemy.  And here is the Man that says He is I am.  Do they believe Him enough to make their claim?  I've heard preachers during sermons say that Peter makes his claim without hesitation.  Personally, I believe Peter took some time before he gave his monumental statement.  I think he thought about it.  He understood that he was being put on the spot.  He had full comprehension of how big this moment was.

The thing is, I think Jesus asks each one of us every day, "Who do you say that I am?"  Our most important moment in life is when we cross that threshold.  And make our claim that Jesus is the Messiah.  But on a daily basis, I believe He wants us to KNOW Him.  He asks us, "do you know My heart?"  "Do you understand who I am?"  "Do you really know me?"  And the question, "Who do you say that I am" becomes more important for us each day.

I really wish I knew Him.

I like Ecclesiastes.  It's a very challenging book

I like Ezekiel and Psalms from the OT.  The Valley of Dry Bones (Ezekiel 37:1-15) is probably my favorite Bible story.

I like John and 1 Corinthians the best in the NT.

It's quite hard to pick just one favorite from either set.  Still not able to come up with an NT book to call mine.
