# 02487 :  Does the Bible say Jesus is God?

I am going to make some bullet points to those who are interested to study this subject on your own. I will not be quoting the verses here for the sake of time. But if you like to learn this seriously, you have to read these verses and study. If you have questions about any of these I will be happy to explain more, as time permits.

Jesus own claims-

Jesus has the authority to forgive sins – Mark 2:5-12; Luke 5:21

Jesus accepted worship as God & claimed to deserve the same honor as the Father-

Matt 14:33; 28:17-18; John 5:22-23; 9:38; 17:5.

Jesus claimed to be the divine Son of God, a title the Jews rightly understood to be a claim to equality with God.

John 5:17-18 – ‘making him equal with God’; John 10:30-33 ‘claiming to be God’; John 19:7

TRAITS UNIQUE TO GOD & JESUS

As the creator

God the Father

Gen 1:1; Ps 102:25; Isa 44:24.

Jesus the Son

John 1:3; Col 1:16; Heb.1:2, 10

As the first & the last

God – Isa 44:6

Jesus -  Rev 1:17; 22:13

Lord of Lords

God- Deut 10:17; Ps 136:3

Jesus –  1 Tim 6:15; Rev 17:14; 19:16

Unchanging & eternal

God – Ps 90:2; 102:26-27; Mal 3:6

Jesus –   John 8:58; Col 1:17; Heb. 1:11-12; 13:8

Judge of all people

God – Gen 18:25; Ps 94:2; 96:13; 98:9

Jesus – John 5:22; Acts 17:31; 2 Cor. 5:10; 2 Tim 4:1

The only Savior

God – Isa 43:11; 45:21-22; Hosea 13:4

Jesus – John 4:42; Acts 4:12; Titus 2:13; 1 John 4:14

We will continue with- Redeemer; the One who hears our prayers; with divine glory & worshipped by angels in the next posting in the same format.

To me the verse that gives me, the "goosebumps" when considering the diety of my Lord Jesus Christ is Heb 1:8 - But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever..

Here is God the Father, speaking through the inspired words of the sons of korah, and directly addresses the Son, as "O God" and confirming His eternal existance as God.

Contd. [TRAITS UNIQUE TO GOD & JESUS CHRIST.]

Redeems from their sins –

God – Exodus 19:5; Ps 130:7-8; Ezekiel 37:23.

Jesus – Titus 2:14

Hears & answers prayers of those who call on Him.

God – Ps 86:5-8; Isa 55:6-7; Jer. 33:3; Joel 2:32

Jesus – John14:14; Rom 10:12-13; 1 Cor. 1:2; 2Cor. 12:8-9

Has divine glory

God – Isa 42:8 & 48:11

Jesus – John 17:5 ‘the glory I had with you before the world was created.’

Worshipped by angels.

God – Ps 97:7

Jesus – Heb. 1:6

If there is interest the following subjects can also be studied in the similar format.

(a)    Why do Christians believe in the Trinity?

(b)   The word ‘Trinity’ does not appear in the Bible; if so, how credible could it be?

(c)    Is Jesus God?

(d)   Is Jesus a lesser God than the Father?

(e)   Are the titles, the Father, the Son & the Spirit just different titles of Jesus?
