How Did People Know Him?

So if the followers of Jesus considered God to be their “Father,” then how did they regard Jesus? To answer this let us read together:

“And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.” Matthew 14:5 (compare with Matthew 21:26 )

“And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.” Matthew 21:11

“But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.” Matthew 21:46

“And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:” Luke 24:19

“The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.” John 4:19

“Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.” John 6:14

“Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet.” John 7:40

“And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.” Luke 7:16

“They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.” John 9:17

Indeed, how did Jesus himself describe himself? Let us read:

“Nevertheless I (Jesus) must walk to day, and to morrow, and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem .” Luke 13:33

And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. Matthew 13:57, Mark 6:4, Luke 4:24, John 4:43
