According to Peter: When Jesus asked the question of His diciples in verse 15 of Matthew 16, "But who do you say that I am?'"
Matthew 16:16-17, Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.

According to the Father: At Jesus' baptism in Matthew 3:16-17, As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is My Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.

According to Thomas: Thomas was told by the other diciples that Jesus was seen by them - that He was alive.  Thomas did not believe. In John 20:26-29 we read, But he replied, “Unless I see the nail marks in His hands, and put my finger where the nails have been, and put my hand into His side, I will never believe.” Eight days later, His disciples were once again inside with the doors locked, and Thomas was with them. Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then Jesus said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas replied, “My Lord and my God!

According to Paul: The apostle proclaimed Jesus both as the crucified Messiah (see especially, 1 Cor 1:18–2:5) and as the risen and living Lord (Rom 6:9; 1 Cor 6:14; 15:12). For him, as in the creedal statements he sometimes employs (1 Cor 15:3–5; 1 Thess 4:14), Jesus' death and resurrection belong inseparably together. And in addition, he is confident that Jesus will soon return, that “the day of the Lord” is not far off (Rom 13:ll–12a; 1 Thess 1:9–10; 5:2).
