Many of the actions of Jesus show Him to be God. If actions of Christ are actions that can only be done by God, then one must conclude that Jesus is God.
Christ Created All Things
One of the clearest claims for Deity in the case of Christ is the many passages that declare Him to be the Creator. Hebrews 3:4 states “….He who built all things is God”. If it can be shown through Scripture that Jesus built/created all things, then Jesus must be divine. John 1:2-3 declares “He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made”. Later on in that same chapter John writes “He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not” (John 1:10).
Paul was another inspired writer who presented Jesus as the great Creator. In 1 Corinthians 8:6 he writes “yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live”. The book of Colossians, also penned by Paul is a wonderful discourse on the Supremacy and Deity of Christ. It states “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist” (Col. 1:16-17).
The book of Hebrews is another New Testament book which calls Jesus the Creator. Proving His Divine Nature it says that God “has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power…” (Heb.1:2-3).
