This is part three of Cliff Sabroe’s series on the Deity of Christ.  You can read parts 1 and 2 (here and here).

Christ is Omnipotent

Omnipotence is the characteristic of having unlimited power that can only be attributed to God. This characteristic of omnipotence is often observed in Jesus. In Philippians 3:20-21 Paul explains that Jesus has the power to “subject all things to Himself”. The only way that Jesus could have the power to “subject all things to Himself” is if He had the full power of God. The only way that Jesus could have the full power of God, was for He Himself to be God.

Christ is Omniscient

In many places in the New Testament, Jesus is shown as having all knowledge. This is a characteristic of Deity and is often referred to as omniscience. If Scripture shows Jesus as being omniscient, then Scripture is showing Jesus as God. In John 2:24-25 the text reads “But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man”. John 6:64 reads “For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him”. Christ had ultimate knowledge, thus, he must be divine.
