Who “IS” Jesus?

There are Four things that we must understand and at the very least study and affirmed so that we can get a full biblical detail of Jesus Christ:
1. Jesus Christ is fully and completely divine.
2. Jesus Christ is fully and completely human.
3. The divine and human natures of Christ are
distinct.
4. The divine and human natures of Christ are
completely united in one person.
The Deity of Christ
The Scripture provides information that describes that Jesus is
fully and completely God:

1.) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . . . And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:1, 14).

2.)No one has ever seen God; the only God, who
is at the Father’s side, he has made him known
(John 1:18).
3.)Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”
(John 20:28).

Think about this and understand that my thought and belief is based wholly upon Scripture and supported by historical evidence by other religions although they do not support the deity of Christ.

Jesus’ Understood who he was and His Own Deity Although the Scripture clearly explain the deity of Christ, this truth is often challenged. Some detractors say that Jesus did not  profess be God and that these verses were written by his disciples who deified him because of the impact he had on their lives. the detractors say that  Jesus, only presented as a great moral teacher as others of his time and of other religious leaders. However, Jesus’ understanding of his own deity in the Gospels does not support this perspective. He clearly saw himself as God. This can be seen primarily in six ways which I will discuss in my next post.

Why Being Good Is Not Good Enough

The subject of being good is all that is required to attain an eternity with God in lieu of an eternity in hell is controversial and requires one to choose between Christian teaching from the Scripture of the Bible over popular non Christian thought. 

Christianity is the only religious thought that claims that there is only one path to being able to spend eternity in heaven in the presence of God. That thought also claims that although it is not directly addressed in Scripture, there is a trinity of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Each of these personalities will be discussed in future blog entries.

The first declaration in the New Testament of the who that Jesus is and would be is found in Matthew 1:22,23, ” …What the Lord has said through the prophet:The virgin shall be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means God with us.”

In future blogs I will discuss my belief with Scripture of why I am convinced that Christianity is in fact the one true path to God. It may cause angst among some readers and bring argument without warrant.

I invite all to respond and to present your argument or your agreement with my thought with warrant to each claim.Image
