Who do you say that I am?

Peter identified Jesus as the Messiah. Jesus then knew he could launch into the "tough bits." Who do you say that I am? Who do I say that you are? What comes next?

This is
The Relational Question.
Never mind that Jesus asked it
Jesus asked it
And Peter got it
Almost right.
I think of everyone
In the known universe
And beyond
All the people
All the creatures,
All things sentient
And even insentient
Like that rock
Over there.
For the sake of conversation
Who is that other?
Who am I
In relation to you?
Who are you
In relation to me?
Who do you
Say that I am?
Who do I
Say that you are?
Then comes the listening
More listening
Even more listening
And perhaps
Just maybe
A response.
