Is Jesus God?


 Is Jesus God?

Jesus always expressed his subordination to his God and Creator.

Examples:

Did Nothing On His Own Authority:

[John 5:30] “I can of my own self do nothing, As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”

[John 14:31] “I do exactly as the Father commanded Me Get up, let us go from here.”

[Matthew 20:23] “ but to sit on My right hand and on My left is not Mine to give, but it is for those for whom it is prepared by My Father.”


Spoke Not On His Own Authority:

[John 8:28] “So Jesus said, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am the one I claim to be and that I do nothing on my own but speak just what the Father has taught me.”

Said That The Father Is Greater Than Him:

[John 14:28] “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.”

Was Tempted:

[Matthew 4:1] “Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.”


But God can not be tempted:

[James 1:13] “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone”


He Denied Knowledge Of The Unseen:

[Mark 13:32]“No-one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

[Matthew 24:36-38] “No-one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

He Was Circumcised, Imagine, God, Being Circumcised!

[Luke 2:21] “On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he had been conceived.”


Was Subject To Change:

[Luke 2:52] “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature.”

But God is Immutable.

[Malachi 3:6]“For I am the Lord, I do not change;


Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

Did Not Accept To Be Called Good And Referred To God:

[Mark 10:18] “Why do you call me good? Jesus answered. No-one is good— except God alone.”


Prayed To God:

[Mark 14:32] “They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”"

[Luke 5:16] “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”

[Matthew 26:39] “…and Jesus fell on his face and prayed.”

[Mark 14:35] “Going a little farther, he (jesus) fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him.”


Ordered Everyone To Worship The One True Almighty God Alone:

[Matthew 4:10] “Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”

[Deuteronomy 6:13] “Fear the LORD your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.”


Referred To Himself As A Prophet:

[Luke 13:33-34] “In any case, I must keep going today and tomorrow and the next day—for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem! “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you.”

Others Also Called Him A Prophet:

[Luke 7:16] “They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said.”

[Luke 24:17-22] “”About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.”

[John 6:14] “After the people saw the miraculous sign that Jesus did, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.”"


Refered To As A Servant Of God:

[Acts 3:13] “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus, the one whom you delivered”

[Acts 4:27] “For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy (A)servant Jesus.”

God Sent Jesus

[John 17:3] “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”


He Made A Distinction Between Himself And The Father:

[Matthew 23:9] “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven.”

[John 12:26-28] “Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. “Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!”"


Refered To Himself Frequently As Son Of Man

[Matthew 8:20] “Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no-where to lay His head.”"

[Matthew 12:32] “Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”

[Matthew 12:40] “for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster (Whale), so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

[Matthew 17:9] “As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, “Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.”"

[John 6:27] “”Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”"


He Is Also Described As ‘A Man Approved By God’

[Acts 2:22] “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man approved by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.”
