JESUS: IS HE GOD?

Is the Deity of Christ Defendable?

During His days on earth and throughout the centuries following, opinions about Jesus have varied greatly. Jewish dignitaries of His day saw Him as a deceiver. Roman officials saw Him as a threat to civil peace. His half brothers heckled Him. One of His followers betrayed Him. Another denied Him. Many abandoned Him. Although He spoke the truth, most did not have ears to hear.

Nevertheless, during His short time on earth, He spoke clearly as to who He was, where He was from, why He was here . . . and earth has never been the same. Nor is anyone the same, anyone in whom Jesus comes to dwell.

Consequently, in your own lifetime, you will also have to respond to two crucial questions about Jesus: First, “Do you believe He is God?” and second, “What will you do with Him?” In truth, Jesus stated clearly to His followers…

To this very day, differing beliefs about Jesus abound. Some say He was just a teacher of truths ... or just a prophet of peace ... or just a man of miracles—but certainly not God. A few even allege that Jesus never lived. 

Yet throughout the centuries, committed Christians have continued to say, “He is my Savior and Lord—my God and King!” But who do you say that Jesus is? That is the very question Jesus asked His closest disciples... 

"What about you?’ he asked. ‘Who do you say I am?"

Matthew 16:15
