Sermon Recap || Is Jesus God?

JCE_Twitter

Sunday, I continued our series in the book of John and looked at John 1:1 – 18 and sought to answer the question why we believe Jesus is God. If you missed it, you can listen to it here.

The question of whether Jesus is God, if he was a man while on earth, was he God on earth has been debated since Jesus was alive. The theological term for our belief that Jesus was God in human flesh is what theologians called The Hypostatic Union which means “Jesus has two distinct natures: humanity and deity, there is no mixture or intermingling of the two natures, although he has two natures, Jesus is one person.”

On Sunday, I gave 8 reasons why we as a church believe Jesus is God (you can find these 8 reasons in the great book Doctrine by Mark Driscoll):

  1. God the Father said Jesus was God (Matthew 3:17, 17:5).
  2. The Demons said Jesus was God (Mark 1:24, 34, Luke 4:33 – 34, 41).
  3. Jesus said He was God (Matthew 26:63 – 65, Mark 10:17 – 18, 14:61 – 64, John 5:18, 6:38, 8:58 – 59, 14:6).
  4. The Bible plainly says Jesus is God (Matthew 1:23, Romans 9:5, Titus 2:13, 3:4, 1 John 5:20, 2 Peter 3:18).
  5. Jesus is given the names of God (Matthew 24:30, 26:64, Mark 13:26, 14:62 – 64, Luke 21:27, 22:69, John 5:17 – 29, Acts 1:9 – 11, 1 Thessalonians 4:17, Revelation 1:7).
  6. Jesus possessed the attributes of God (Psalm 139:7 – 12, Matthew 11:27, 28:18, 20, John 1:1, 2:25, 4:18, 16:30, 17:5, 1 Timothy 1:17, Hebrews 13:8, James 1:17).
  7. Jesus did the works of God (Matthew 12:24, 27:42, Luke 5:20 – 21, John 10:36 – 39, 11:47, 20:30 – 31).
  8. People worshiped Jesus as God (Deut. 6:13, 10:20, Matthew 4:10, 15:25, John 5:23, Acts 7:59 – 60, 10:25 – 26).

You definitely want to make plans to be at Revolution Church on Sunday as we continue in John and look at John 1:19 – 34 and how Jesus moves in our world and how He works. It is definitely going to be an eye opening morning.

  1. I need to print this list off. Sometimes when the devil has been talking I think to myself “Did Jesus ever REALLY say He was God?”. This can be my go to list of scripture. Thanks!!!!
