Essay On Jesus Is Divine

Better Essays
Jesus is, without a doubt, the true son of God the Father. In addition, there is significant evidence to support that He is God Man. This is backed up by the Trilemma Argument along with the John’s Gospel in the New Testament, the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. Primarily, the Trilemma argues that Jesus did claim to be divine. If Jesus was not divine, he cannot be a good man because that would make Him either a liar or lunatic. Now, due to Jesus’ teachings and Holy life as depicted in John the reader can clearly see that Jesus is not only a good man, but the best man to ever live, God in human form. By upholding the fact that Jesus’ claim to be divine is true,one can clearly see that Jesus is God after that particular person looks into the New Testament, more specifically the Gospel of John. In this book of the Bible, Jesus is seen up close and personal performing many miracles, further proving the fulfillment of the prophesied Messiah in the Old Testament. For example, Jesus cured the man born blind and more importantly brought back Lazarus from the grave, defying and overcoming physical death and therefore the devil’s grasp on humanity. In addition to being a miracle worker, Jesus made clear his unique relationship with God the Father. The main theme found in the Gospel of John is the fact that Jesus is divine, …show more content…
These three arguments are that Jesus in either the God Man, a bad man, or a madman. If Jesus’ claim to be divinity was true, which he was, then He most definitely the Son of God the Father and therefore fulfills every foreshadowing of a savior or a Messiah in the Old Testament. Jesus is also on a personal level with his “abba,” God the father. the son of God states, “And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it” (Jn 14:13-14). Here,

    The question of Christ’s deity may be the single most important question that the Church has to face today. Many today claim that Jesus was just a good teacher and that he himself never claimed to be divine. In Islam, it is believed that the Christians corrupted his teachings to say that he was the Son of God. However, through this apologetics course, it has been shown verifiably that the New Testament is reliable and uncorrupted. This means that what Jesus says in the New Testament is most likely the most accurate version of what he taught.…

    To know and understand through the revelation of the Spirit of God, the eternal oneness of Jesus the "Son", Jesus the "Father", and Jesus the "Holy Spirit". That He was and is before all things and that by him "all things consist". That Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily and without controversy great is that mystery of Godliness. Even though man in his finite thinking gradually gravitated away from the leading of the Holy Spirit through the centuries, God has still through Jesus Christ revealed himself to those who have a hunger and thirst for righteousness. We can clearly understand how Jesus would utter sayings such as "before Abraham was I am" because he was the God of the Universe before there was a universe.…

    Peter’s confession that Jesus is the Messiah is indeed one of the key aspects of the passage and Peter’s confession of faith was a gift from God. Davies states that Peter was blessed due to the fact that he could not come up with this confession that Jesus is the Christ by himself, the human mind is not capable. This confession of faith itself was a revelation from God. Perhaps the response Jesus provides Peter in v 17 shows that the way in which Peter spoke was much like a prophet of old. Worthy of mention is…

    O’Collins’ book Christology, O’Collins points out that divine love must be understood in the biblical stories of salvation. O’Collins provides multiple excerpts from the Bible but one passage from the letter to the Romans is the most compelling. It reads, “But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). In order to prove God has divine love for us, we must look to what evidence there is to support that God loves us. Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven.…

    The second view is that God is righteous, He loves love and hates hatred, He is a God that desires for us to act in a certain way and not in another (Lewis 36). Pantheists believe that God is the universe and anything in it is part of Him; meanwhile, Christians believe that God created the universe. Lewis continues from there and tackles the age-old question, “If a good God made the world why has it gone wrong?” (Lewis 38). His explanation for this is that if the universe truly was so cruel and unjust and completely void of any meaning, humanity should have never found out about this lack of meaning. Lewis says that he believes in Christianity because it, as well as reality, are very complicated, odd and not what you could guess.…

    The Gospels of The New Oxford Annotated Bible aim to tell of the life of Jesus Christ. The authors build the narratives around the Father-Son relationship of God and Jesus because of how much of an impact God’s sacrifice has on Jesus’ ministry. “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). Throughout the book of John, Jesus repeatedly says that he is the Son of God, the Son of Man, and God. If Jesus is both the Son of God and God, then it follows that God himself is the Son of Man as well.…

    One who believes in God just because the Bible says he exists blessed even though this person has not seen the proof of God's existence. "1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding so that we might know Him who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life." The existence of God and us contemplating how God exists has to do a lot with why Jesus the son exists. God sent Jesus born of from a virgin is an example of God's existence.…

    That is, the Bible does not give a greater insight to the human nature of Jesus that it does to His divinity, and it does not give a greater importance to the divine nature of Jesus than it does to His humanity. In all reality, the Bible is implying that both natures of Christ are extremely important in characterizing Jesus. Moreover, the Bible unites both natures as a necessity in identifying Jesus. If somebody goes against this biblical truth (i.e., somebody gives a greater emphasis to one nature than another or somebody undermines one nature), he or she will be…

    Humanity, because of its fallen nature, needs the mediation of another person—a divine and human person. The only being who can mediate this journey of communion between man and God is Christ; he has been able to make the one perfect and acceptable sacrifice to God. Jesus’ obedient sacrifice of his life to God the Father was able not only to redeem humanity, but it also gives perfect glory to the Father. The priestly sacrifice of Jesus’ body and blood on the cross goes beyond the formal ritual sacrifices of the Levitical priesthood. Christ’s oblation to the Father accomplishes two specific objectives besides winning for him admission into the heavenly sanctuary.…
