Who is Jesus? (Mark 12:35-40)
It required a divine/human being to fulfill the Scriptural requirements for Messiah. Jesus is that being.
I. What is a Messiah?
II. What Messiah does the bible predict?
III. What did the Scribes (and others) say about Jesus as Messiah?
IV. How do we know Jesus is the Messiah?
V. What are we to make of teaching (teachers) that denies Jesus is the Messiah predicted and identified in the Bible?

35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? 36 David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared,
“‘The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
until I put your enemies under your feet.’
37 David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son?” And the great throng heard him gladly.
38 And in his teaching he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes and like greetings in the marketplaces 39 and have the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 40 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” (ESV)
