Deity of Jesus Christ
"Who do people say the Son of Man is?" Jesus Christ asked Peter (Matthew 15:13). His reply described the confusion of the multitudes during their time: "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets. (verse 14)"
Confronted with the same question, people today reply in a similar fashion. Some believe Jesus to be a mere man with outstanding character - martyr, prophet, revolutionary - nevertheless, no more than mere mortal. Others believe Him to be a sub-deity or an angel who is lower than God in nature and rank. He is more than man, they assert, but still short of the fullness of deity. The various views reveal the confusion of many over Jesus Christ's nature.
It is of paramount importance, however, that we have a proper understanding of who He is. Our faith stands or falls on our understanding of the true Person of Jesus Christ. Throughout the ages, many have attacked the biblical view of Jesus Christ. To date, the most serious one has been the rejection of His deity. The Bible, however, from the Old to the New Testament, reveals the true nature of our Lord. As we study it thoroughly and objectively, there should be no doubt over His divinity.
The objective of this material is to assist the reader to discover what the Bible says about the deity of Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that our minds will be enlightened and our faith in Him strengthened so that we could effectively share Him with others, to His glory and honor.
