Jesus Said He Was God

The more we study the words of our Lord Jesus Christ when He lived on earth among us, the more certain we are about who He is. Some critics have scoffed, “Jesus did not claim to be God. He only said He was the Son of Man.” It is true that Jesus used the term “Son of Man” frequently. But He testified boldly, even among those who were His sworn enemies, that He was God. He said with great forcefulness that He had come from the Father in heaven and that He was equal with the Father. Bible-believing Christians stand together on this. They may differ about the mode of baptism, church policy, or the return of the Lord, but they agree on the deity of the eternal Son. Jesus Christ is of one substance with the Father—begotten, not created (Nicene Creed). In our defense of this truth, we must be very careful and old-belligerent, if need be! Christ is the brightness of God’s glory and the express image of God’s Person!


But unto the Son he saith, “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever.” Hebrews 1:8


Christ is the brightness of God’s glory and the express image of God’s Person!


Lord, I do realize that You are just who You said You are, and I worship You as the Son of God.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
