Jesus Christ, God

Jesus is the Son of God. (Matthew 8:29; Mark 1:1; Luke 1:35) The fact that Jesus is God is evidenced by

  1. He was Fathered by The Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:35)
  2. He has the following qualities:
    1. He is Creator. (John 1:3)
    2. He has life giving power. (John 5:21)
    3. No one created Him (Self-existence). (John 5:26)
    4. He holds the universe together. (Colossians 1:17)
    5. He knew at His water baptism that He had to fulfill all righteousness. (Matthew 3:15; Philippians 2:8)
    6. When He was tempted, He demonstrated He had nothing to prove even though He was the Son of God. (Matthew 4:7)
    7. He knew He was judge of all men. (Matthew 7:21)
    8. He knew His work (evidenced by calling disciples). (Matthew 3:13.14)
    9. He knew God was His Father. (Luke 2:49)
    10. His name is coupled with the Fatherís in other scripture passages. (John 17:3)
    11. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in Him. (Colossians 2:9)
    12. He is all knowing (omniscient). (John 2:24,25)
    13. He is all-powerful (omnipotent). (Matthew 28:18)
    14. He raises the dead. (John 11:25,43)
    15. He forgives sins. (Mark 2:10)
    16. He judges all men. (John 5:22)
    17. He is mentioned in the formula for water baptism. (Matthew 28:19)
    18. He is mentioned in the Apostolic Benediction. (2 Corinthians 13:14)
    19. He is everywhere (omnipresent). (Matthew 18:20)
    20. He existed before the world (pre-existence). (John 8:58)
    21. He does not change. (Hebrews 13:8)
  3. He is worshipped. (Mark 14:33; Luke 24:52; John 20:28)
