The historical dispute between God and Jesus
Comprehending is Jesus God
Different people answer the question is Jesus God. According to some scholars, Jesus is a human who walked on the earth around 2,000 years ago and did remarkable wonders. Some others say that he is God. Here are some verses which can throw some light on the argument.
It’s important to note that Jesus claimed to be God. In verse 36, it’s made clear that Jesus is the son of God. He didn’t say He was like the Father. He mentioned that they were ‘one’.
Jesus existed before time started, according to John 1:1-3. Jesus was with God from the beginning and he was God. The Bible solidifies the inseparable nature of God and Jesus. During his life on this earth, Jesus established His nature as 100% God via various pieces of evidence. He didn’t only claim to be God, but he claimed to have God’s power also. He said he holds the authority to forgive sins (Mark 2:5-7), to raise people from the dead (John 5:25-29), and to judge the nations (Matthew 25:31-46) – things can be done by God only.
Sometimes, people can be seen asking others ‘can you prove Jesus is God’. One needs to understand that Jesus’ identity isn’t solely based on what He says, but it’s based on what He does. And there’re lots of evidence that prove God and Jesus is the same. These evidence include recorded miracles in which he reversed the laws of nature as well as fulfilled prophecy. He also lived a pure life (Hebrews 4:15), which has not done by anyone else.
