Is Jesus God?

#AskAlpineBible Alpine Bible

Is Jesus eternal God? The Bible tells us in John 1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” And in verse 14, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

So not only does John 1 say that Jesus has a relationship with the Father, but it also calls Jesus God. In Revelation, the Bible tells us, “He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end, the eternal one.” In John 8:58, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am.” The statement that Jesus uses to refer himself to the “I am” is found in Genesis 3:14, when Moses is given the name of God, which is, “I am.” That word, “I am” is the word for Yahweh, of the which we later translated as “Yehovah” and today we refer to as Jesus, in John 8:58.

The name, “I am” is the self existent one. The “Alpha the Omega” points to him as the eternal one. In John chapter 21:28, it that tells us that doubting Thomas bowed before Jesus and call him, “My Lord and my God.” In Colossians 2:9 it tells us that he is the image of the invisible God. Same thing in Colossians 1:15.

So is Jesus God? The Bible make it plainly clear that, yes indeed, he is. And worship is given to him as Lord and God.
