Deity of Christ–Conclusion

I hope you have enjoyed Cliff’s Sabroe’s series on the Deity of Christ.  You can read the earlier articles by clicking the links below.

Conclusion

One of the clearest teachings in Scripture is the Deity of Christ. Countless pages could be penned to expound upon the innumerable verses that express this teaching. One needs to be prepared to teach people about the Divine nature of Jesus, for it is necessary to understand in order to be saved. Jesus plainly taught in John 8:24 “Unless you believe that I am he, you will die in your sins”.

Deity of Christ-Jesus’ Actions Part 2

Be sure to read the earlier posts in this series.

Christ Welcomed and Received Worship

One of the clearest teachings in the entire Bible is the fact that only God is deserving of worship. In the Ten Commandments it reads “You shall have no other Gods before Me” (Ex. 20:3). Jesus reiterated a similar point to Satan when He answered him in Matthew 4:10 saying “You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve”. God is the only one worthy of being worshiped, so if anywhere in Scripture we find Jesus being worshiped, then He is either a sinner (which violates Heb. 4:15) or He is God.

Deity of Christ-His Actions Part 1

Cliff Sabroe continues his study of the deity of Christ.  You can catch up on the study by clicking here and here.

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).

Christ Claimed to be Omnipotent

Not only did Jesus preach His eternal existence, He also declared the great power He possessed. Jesus wanted those in His presence to understand that He had the equal power to the Father. He once stated “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will” (John 5:20-21)

Existence of God–What can we learn?

We have examined the created world to show evidence for God.  We have explained the Christian belief in the existence of God through the teleological, cosmological, moral, and ontological arguments (You can read more about them all by clicking here).

Romans 1 states that two parts of God can be known from the creation. So what are the two areas where creation can inform us about God?  Paul says they are his eternal power and divine nature (Romans 1:19).  Not only can these two things be seen in the creation, but Paul says they are clearly seen.  So in those two categories what have we learned about God:
