THE DEITY OF JESUS

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16

One central truth that makes a believer who he is in Christ is the deity of Christ. That’s the dividing line between our faith and other religions of the world.

Jesus is celebrated by many as ‘a great prophet’, a role model and so on, but we worship Jesus as God. That’s who He is!

From the scriptures to the gospel to the epistles, the bible is replete with the revelation of Jesus’ deity.

In the scriptures, it was written of Him “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).

He is the ‘Mighty God’ and Everlasting father’!

In the gospels, Jesus quizzes the Pharisees about who the Messiah is.

“He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?”
Matthew 22:43-44

He takes the time to prove to them that He is the Lord.

Lastly, in the epistles, we see Paul write to his protegee in ministry about the undebatable details of the faith; of which includes the deity of Christ.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
1 Timothy 3:16

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2:13

Romans 9:5 says “Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, GOD BLESSED FOR EVER. Amen.

The bible is clear about His identity; His deity. Jesus Christ is more than a great prophet. He is God!
