Is Jesus God?

Answer

Absolutely. Jesus claimed equality with God the Father, saying such things as “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham came into existence, ‘I AM.’ Which is who how God the Father identified Himself in the Old Testament in Exodus 3:14. He also claimed the authority of God, said He was to be worshiped as God, honored as God, and glorified as God. The Bible even goes on to say that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. Notice that it doesn’t say He was made in the image of God, like it says we are in the book of Genesis. But rather it says that He actually IS the image of God. AKA the visible manifestation of God Himself. Anything less would have been unworthy to pay for our sins, and insufficient for our justification. Don’t let anyone sway you from this Truth.

Answer

It is an easy matter to prove that Jesus Christ is not God by decontextualizing verses where He spoke as a man to His heavenly Father. Yet the Bible clearly teaches that although He was God He did to a large degree lay down His divine power and authority, except when it was appropriate.

Philippians 2:5-11 (King James Version)

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Note in the above passage that worship which belongs to God alone is to be given to Jesus Christ. He also never forbade worship at any time during His time on earth, although He did try to remain incognito at times due to crowd problems.

Answer

Yes, Jesus said “I do what the Father tells me to do and I say what the Father tells me to say” therefore he is God.

Answer

Over 7 times Jesus claimed that He was the ‘I am’. The Jews of Jesus’ day quite rightly recognized this claim for what it was.

Often there is confusion since Jesus took on Himself the ‘form of a servant’ and became a humble human, ‘that He might taste death for every man.’ This is not the same as Him being a created being, nor even implies that He was anything other than almighty God. In the book of Revelation both Jesus and the Father are called Alpha and Omega. Both God and Jesus are light. There are numerous such likenesses mentioned in the Bible.

They killed Him for blasphemy from the Jews and treason from the Romans. Blasphemy is claiming to be God.
