Where in the Bible does it say that Jesus is God?

BibleAsk TeamPosted on

The Bible declares that Jesus is God. Let’s examine some of the references:

1- Jesus is the Creator of all (John 1:3). “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him” (Colossians 1:16 NKJV) and we know that God is the Creator.

2- He is self-existent “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1–4; 14:6) and we know that only God is self-existent (Psalm 90:2).

3- He has power to give life even to resurrect Himself. He gives eternal life (1 John 5:11, 12, 20). “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again” (John 10:18). “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25).

4- He is eternal and we know that only God is eternal “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation 1:8).

5- He is omnipotent all-powerful “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

6- He is omnipresent through the Holy Spirit. “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20 NKJV). “For I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city” (Acts 18:10 NKJV).

7- He is omniscient. He reads the minds of men. The Scriptures teach that only God knows the thoughts of men (1 Kings 8:39). “for he knew what was in man” (John 2:25). “Nathanael said to Him, ‘How do You know me?’ Jesus answered and said to him, ‘Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you’” (John 1:48 NKJV).

8- The Father calls Jesus God and His disciples call Him God “But unto the Son he saith, thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of thy kingdom” (Hebrews 1:8). Thomas, confessed, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:26–29; Hebrews 1:6).

9- Jesus forgives sin “your sins are forgiven” (Luke 5:20, 21) and we know that only God can forgive sin (Isaiah 43:25).

10- Jesus accepted worship that according to the Ten Commandments is reserved only for the Almighty (Matthew 14:33). “And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, ‘All hail.’ And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him” (Matthew 28:9).
