Jesus: Is He God?

(Psalms 2:12) Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.


The Muslims teach that Jesus was a prophet like Mohamed; they even go so far as to put in writing on the Dome of the Rock that Allah has NO son! The Jews say he was (at best) a nice guy and many cults teach that Jesus was simply "a god". What did Jesus teach and what does the Bible say about him and who the Messiah will be?

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament teach that the Messiah would be God and is God. The Bible very clearly admonishes us that the only person who deserves worship is the one true God. Did Jesus accept worship, did God the Father direct others to worship him? Let's take a look.

(Jeremiah 25:6) And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt.

(Exodus 34:14) For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

(Deuteronomy 8:19) And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.

Therefore the Bible is very clear that we are to worship God alone and that to worship anyone else is a serious sin.

In Isaiah we read that the Messiah is to be the mighty God!

(Isaiah 9:6) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:7) Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

This verse throws a lot of people off because it says..the mighty God, The everlasting Father.. However, with a simple understanding of the doctrine of the trinity we know that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are the one true God. They are 3 persons but One God. In this way Jesus could say to Thomas is you have seen me you have seen the Father, how can you say show us the Father (John 14: 8-11).

Also in Micah 5:2 it says:

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.


This verse is very telling in that it says that the ruler of Israel will be from everlasting which cannot mean that the ruler will be a mere man.


Joh 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
Joh 14:9 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?
Joh 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Joh 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.

Also in the New Testament we have Jesus accepting worship from shepherds, a leper, a ruler, his disciples, a Canaanite woman and Thomas to name a few:

1. (Matthew 2:11) And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

2. (Matthew 8:2) And, behold, there came a leper and worshiped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.(Matthew 8:3) And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.(Matthew 9:18) While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshiped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.

3. (Matthew 14:30) But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.(Matthew 14:31) And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?(Matthew 14:32) And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.(Matthew 14:33) Then they that were in the ship came and worshiped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

4. (Matthew 15:22) And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.(Matthew 15:23) But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.(Matthew 15:24) But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.(Matthew 15:25) Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me.(Matthew 15:26) But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

5. (John 20:26) And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.(John 20:27) Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.(John 20:28) And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.(John 20:29) Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

6. (Matthew 28:9) And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshiped him.(Matthew 28:10) Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Do you think Jesus is God?

  • Yes
  • No
  • I don't know

And the angels worship him:

(Hebrews 1:5) For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?(Hebrews 1:6) And again, when he bringeth in the first-begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

In closing, I would have to say that if Jesus is not God, then he could not be a prophet because a prophet who accepts worship would be a false prophet, nor could he be a "nice guy" because again he would be a blasphemer and that is exactly what the Jews accused him of and why he was crucified, nor is he "a god" because the scriptures teach that there are no other gods but the Lord Almighty.

Exo 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Exo 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Gal 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.

Finally, the book of Titus tells us that God was manifest in the flesh:

1Ti 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.

Therefore the only conclusion that we are left with according to the holy scriptures is that Jesus is God, the second person of the trinity!

I have two problems with this hub. I will address each one.

My first problem is that you wrote, "The Jews thought He was (at best) a nice guy." The Jews hated Jesus. They wanted Him dead and out of their midst. They constanly tried to trap Him. (reminds me of Satan)

The second problem I have is in your poll. The word "was" should be changed to the word "is."

Other than those two things, I agree completely. Jesus is God manifest in the flesh.

I also wrote a hub on this subject many months ago.

Ok, I'll change the poll..an error on my part. However, the question regarding the Jews...I did say "at best" and I also did mention that they crucified Him because they they understood that he said he was God. So I stand by that statement because many Jews today think he was "a good man".

I'm glad you liked it Vladimir

Interesting Hub! I wanted to write something on this topic as well. I thought of the way, in conversation and writing writers sometimes skip from 'God' to 'Jesus', by also 'Son of God'. well I know that He may well be all three, isn't that amazing that everyone can know this truth now, because of the holy spirit and the gluing factor that none is actually apart or separated. Jesus also loved the sinners.

Nice Article.The picture has catchy colors. I invite you to read my page.

Okay no God is not Jesus. God is God. You all are saying that God or Jesus was crazy. Ask yourself this question when Jesus was on the cross and he asked God to forgive them for they know not what they do he was talking to himself? or how about all the times Jesus prayed...was he praying to himself? Last what does the leper and all of those people have to do with anything? people are followers anyway and easily mislead. My point is God sent Jesus God is not Jesus.

Brie, I hope you don't mind my sharing my hub link for USEURHEAD, if he'd like to read up on more explanation and answers to his questions.

USEURHEAD, I assume you're saved? I pray you let the Holy Spirit help you along in understanding the identity of Jesus Christ. He is Immanuel, God with us (Mat 1:23). He is the Word of God made flesh (John 1:14)...so many revelations of this truth throughout the Bible. I would like to invite you to read my hub link here: http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Let-Me-Tel...

Believers are to help each other in love; God desires we know Him, amen? He's coming soon. Can you imagine that God Himself came to us to shed His own blood for His creation, so that all who believe in Him will be made holy and inherit eternal life? That's absolutely amazing. USEURHEART :-)

You are right on Sister, good scriptures. I would like to address your critic, SirDent. ALL Jews did not hate Jesus. The religious Jewish factions hated him. Why? Because he showed to the world their fake righteousness. Now, lets get something clear here. Thousands of Jews flocked to hear Jesus and be healed by him. Jealousy of the number of followers became an issue with the legalistic Pharisees and the Roman Empire because he was the voice of authority and that took something from them. You have to remember that all of the disciples were Jewish. So, all of the Jews did not kill Jesus, only the religious sector. This is the kind of statements that lead people to believe Jesus was and still is not today loved by Jews. Just like back then we see millions of Messianic Jews flocking to their Messiah, the blinders are being lifted. Jesus did not abandon who he was and become a Gentile,like so many of us in the West envision him. He came to give salvation to the Jew first, and we are living in a prophet time where we are seeing the falling away in the church and the rising of the Messianic Jews. I think a few blinders need to be lifted off the Christians, and yes Brie he is God come in the flesh and he will keep his covenant with the Jews. It's not all about Christians, so don't boast because we are only an engrafted branch, and we are seeing today the root being grafted back in.

The article was very clear, the Bible is God's word and Jesus is God...which the scripture clearly makes known.

Great hub Brie! 100% agree.

For those who question, look up "Holy Trinity". Maybe that will help you understand how "The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit" are one and the same.

God never promised that you will understand everything. There are some things our frail minds cannot fathom. That is why it is called "Faith".

@SirDent

I have a rebuttal to your statements.

1) Brie made the disclaimer "at best" Jews think Jesus was a nice guy. "At best" alludes to that there are many negative Jewish opinions of Jesus.

2) She used present tense of what modern day Jews think of Jesus. Thus, your use of past tense of ancient Jews is misplaced....and on a side note not all ancient Jews in Jesus's time wanted Jesus dead. Jesus was a Jew as were his apostles , followers, and parents.

The Buddhist view on Jesus: That he was a Bodhisattva - an enlightened master choosing to stay on earth from reincarnation to reincarnation to save humanity from suffering.

All the Christian views on Jesus seem to me to be worthwhile though... just bugs me that "Christianity" has so little emphasis on Christ himself, rather so much instead on the church and its politics. I do however see the value in spending some time in Bible study... something I'd like to take at college someday... it is a very good book, after all, at least.

In Revelations 14:1-4 it states that only 144,000 men will be called to Heaven. And these 144,000 are all virgins (not defiled by women). In Revelations 7, it says these 144,000 men are all Jews, 12,000 each from the 12 tribes of Israel.

From these passages, I presume that all women or men that have had children are all destined for Hell and that only 144,000 gay Jewish men will go to Heaven.

Does this mean that

To state that the Jews thought Yahshua was a nice guy and that's all, is wrong.

Yahshua (Jesus to you) went to the Jews and many accepted him

The Twelve Disciples/Apostles (Jews) accepted him and they went to many Jews that accepted their testimony.

Many many Jews accepted Yahshua. The Gentiles didn't hear of Yahshua's testimony until much later. There are many Gentiles who don't believe and there are many Jews who don't. Yahshua didn't fight the ones that had Him crucified because they filled the prophecy.

John 8:31

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

John 2:23

"Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did"

John 4:39

And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.

John 4:41

And many more believed because of his own word;

John 8:30

As he spake these words, many believed on him.

John 10:42

And many believed on him there.

John 11:45

Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him

John 12:11

Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

While that is true, I guess I just didn't think to include pagans as a major group. As for nominal Christians that is their stance but the doctrine itself still proclaims Christ as the Son of God.


Nikko 6 years ago

As i read in the bible and accuratly understand it,i know for a fact that Jesus is not GOD,but he is the son of GOD,just like adam was GODs son.To many facts in the bible prove that.For instance,GOD can not lie and he can not die.Te dead cant do nothing but stay dead.Has no man or flesh ever seen GOD (Jehovah or Yahweh) and yet,live to tell about it.He's to powerful for any flesh to see.All those time Jesus was praying who was he praying to,Himself?? I dont think so.He said a few times he is not greater than his father and that he did not come on earth on his own will or speak on his own will ,but that he came because of his fathers will and desire.Plus when jesus was baptise and came out of the water,john the baptist heard GOD voice from heaven saying "This is my son whom i approve of,Follow him"..He sent jesus to not just to preach his word,but to pay the ransom for mankind back to GOD to make up what adam lost for us and adam lost perfection,paridise and a proper relationship with GOD.So jesus made up that with his perfect sacrifice and people who have love,faith and the works(our actions and deeds) can benifit from has perfect body and blood.but only those who the JEhovah,Yahweh will and kiss the son,the only begotton son..Its more i have to say about JEsus and his role,but he aint GOD and in vision,john (jesus apostle) seen jesus standing next to GOD in heaven.You people need to face the facts in the scripture


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 6 years ago from Manhattan Author

Nikko you are terribly mistaken: There are 3 persons in the godhead, the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God and he was praying to his Father who also God otherwise because Jesus accepted worship he would be encouraging idol worship.


ShadowKing! 6 years ago

Though I agree with your premise, you really didn't misconstrue the notion that "Jews say he was (at best) a nice guy". Because you didn't clarify if you were referring "ancient" Jews or "modern-day" Jews. Your failure to specify which time-group led SirDent & Deborah to present their oppositions. Notice in professional writing such a specification would have be clearly written. Simple mistake that's all, right?

Also, until these Jesus-debates are preceded by a thorough examination of the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible, no general consensus of agreement about Jesus' Supreme divinity or mediocre divinity will be reached. I can prove any alleged Bible contradiction to not be be one (by using H & G texts) & turn any alleged truth into a supposed contradiction (by using English translations).

My point here--is God didn't commission His prophets & apostles to write His words in any other languages but Hebrew & Greek. Thus all the Jesus-debates stem from English translation interpretations. Try arguing His Godhood in Hebrew or Greek and the opposers will come out looking idiotic. So, yes, the Hebrew & Greek texts prove He is both the Son of...and is God, but, of course, not Father God.


a real Jew, not "messianic" 5 years ago

and where exactly does the Old Testament say that Jesus is God? Maybe if you read it in English, you might find it as a result of mis-translation and manipulation. In original (in Hebrew) there's no such a nonsense. Judaism is a monotheistic religion and real Jews (religious or non-religious) would never give an honor of being a God to a person of flesh.

God is a supreme deity and He will never give his DNA to a person of Earth. He gave just a spirit (when he breath it into Adam's nostrils), so we got Him inside us.

Messiah will be a person of flesh, from Earthy Jewish parents, but he will be NOT a God, but God's word. This is what Old Testament say- Messiah will be "Word of God" from David line, with flesh-and-blood mother and father, and he is supposed to fulfill Messiah's deeds, from the first appearance, not from the second coming.

The history shows that there were many guys like Jesus and crucifixion was a normal Roman thing of those times (it's just that a story of Yehoshua (Jesus) got a continuation thanks to Paul)

In his time Jesus was not a representative of New religion (Christianity) as this came hundreds of years later and first christians were not Jews (as it was mistakenly stated), but Greeks and Romans. Jews of those times would rather die than except polytheism. I agree, the history shows that some Jews were converting under the brainwashing, as it continues nowadays as well.

My Grandma used to say "a converted Jew is worse than an anti-Semite".

Sorry for intruding into your discussion. I didn't intend to prove you anything (anyone if free to believe whatever he chooses), it's just my input, so that you know what regular Jews think about this matter.

Have a nice day everyone.

a real Jew, not "messianic" 5 years ago

then why were you afraid to publish it for others to decide if it is ridiculous, or just truthful?

You quoted KJV translation, I gave you a literary translation from Hebrew (my native language and the language of the Old Testament).

There is a major difference between those two.

Never say that it was from the Old Testament. From the New Testament- yes; in KJV translation (or rather mis-translation/manipulation)- yes. But not from the original TANACH.


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 5 years ago from Manhattan Author

Because I don't wish to argue with someone who says that none of the Old Testament was future based when there were all kinds of prophecies (some fulfilled some still waiting to be fulfilled) that were future tense.


a real Jew, not "messianic"  5 years ago

I never said that "none of the Old Testament was future based". There's enough future prophesis in OT for years to come. I was talikng about that particular passage that you quated. Verbs of that passage are all in the past tense and I explaind to you what it reffered. If you knew Hebrew and could compare for yourself, you'd see what I meant.

Also, my intent was not to argue.

And, as I've said before, every one is free to choose what to believe and what to follow. It's our choice.

Jesus became God. He wasn't God at first. He would refer to the Father at times but in the book of John 17 He prayed His most fervent prayer to inherit the power of the Father, went up to heaven and was considered God. Previously, He knew that He would and that's why He said what He did in John 14:6. I think we are saying the same thing. Thank you Brie!

NO, Jesus was from everlasting as the word of God clearly says.

Mic 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

The word everlasting in the Greek means from eternity.
