Don’t try to use the Bible to say that Jesus was not God.

Don’t try to use the Bible to say that Jesus was not God.

I was talking to a friend the other day who was talking to a friend who was talking to some guy who tried to use the Bible to prove that Jesus was in fact God’s son, but not God.

This didn’t even make sense to the Apostle John. Take for example John 5:18,

This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

Its the “making himself equal with God” part that shows, at least in the mind of John, that by claiming to be God’s son, he was implying that he was in fact God.

On top of that, we have a number of other verses in the John as well as other places that support the doctrine of the Trinity and the Divinity of Christ. Here are a few very clear ones:

John 8:58 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

John 10:30-33 “I and the Father are one.” The Jews picked up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?” The Jews answered him, “It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself God.”

Colossians 2:9 For in him the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,

Hebrews 1:8 But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.”

Moral of the story? If you find yourself talking to a friend who was talking to a friend who was talking to some guy who tried to use the Bible to prove that Jesus was not God, then inform them all that it can’t be done.
