Who is Jesus? Is Jesus God? Is He instead a mere profit? What do you believe about Him? The answer to these questions will determine where you spend eternity. This is true because whether you believe Him to be or not, Jesus is God, and what you believe about Him is the most important element of your faith.

Reasons Why Jesus is God: Proof of Jesus’ Deity Published by Jesus Truth

  • The Disciples and Apostles Identified Him as God: The apostles who followed Jesus in His earthly ministry and those who came after recognized His deity. In John 20:27-28, Thomas says to Jesus after His resurrection, ….My Lord and my God!” In 2 Peter 1:1, Peter also refers to Jesus as God. The verse says, “…To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ.” The apostle Paul and John also referred to Jesus as God in various verses as did other disciples and apostles.
  • He Was Crucified For Being God: The Jewish people of the day recognized the fact that Jesus believed Himself to be God. This was one of the reasons they wanted to get rid of Him. John 5:18 explains this, “Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.”

Why It’s Important to Identify Jesus as God

If Jesus isn’t God, than the whole Christian belief system is pointless. Without the sacrifice of Jesus, who is the perfect sacrificial lamb, there is no justification from sin. This means we are all hopelessly headed to hell without a way to change our destiny. Thankfully, Jesus is God and did make the sacrifice necessary for anyone who is willing to be justified and forgiven of their sins. Watch this video in its entirety for more evidence of Jesus deity.
