The deity of Christ is an essential, non-negotiable tenet of the Christian faith. Several lines of Biblical evidence flow together to prove conclusively that Jesus is God.
1. The direct statements of Scripture affirm that Jesus is God.
2. Jesus receives titles elsewhere in Scripture given to God.
3. Jesus possesses the incommunicable attributes of God.
4. Jesus does the works that only God can do.
5. Jesus received worship – even though He taught that only God is to be worshipped.
6. Jesus received prayer, which is only to be addressed to God.
The reality that Jesus is God, introduced in the first five verses of John’s gospel prologue flow evidences of the deity of the incarnate Word. and is expanded thought John’s gospel as he carefully selects the claims and miracles that seal the case. It is because of who Jesus truly is that the truth of salvation can be won by Him, and received by us.
