The historical evidence of the virgin birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ cannot be denied. Jesus fulfilled every Old Testament prophecy concerning him.
Jesus Christ is God the Son. The Bible calls him the Son of God. He is all God and all man. He is God incarnate (made flesh) and existed in eternity past with God. He did not sin, and could not sin, yet He voluntarily became sin for us.
1. All the attributes given to God in the Old Testament are also given to Jesus Christ in the New Testament. The Bible is filled with such examples.
Example 1: Both God and Jesus are called THE CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
God: Isaiah 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
Jesus: Colossians 1:16-
Example 2: Every knee WILL BOW BEFORE GOD. Every knee WILL BOW BEFORE CHRIST.
God: Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Jesus: Philippians 2:10-
2. Jesus is often called God in the New Testament. Jesus could have denied this, but he did not.
Example 1: John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Example 2: John 14:6-
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
3. The Apostles and others often used the terms for God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit interchangeably.
Example 1: Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. (Jesus)
Example 2: Colossians 1:15 (Jesus) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Example 3: 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
