Is Jesus God? (With Rob Bowman)

http://www.acts17.net
The core of the New Testament Gospel is that Jesus is the divine Son of God, who died on the cross for sins and rose from the dead. The title “Son of God” here refers to Jesus’ place in the Trinity. But why do Christians believe that Jesus is a person of the Trinity? In this video, Dr. Rob Bowman, co-author of “Putting Jesus in His Place,” explains the Biblical basis for the doctrine of the deity of Christ.

Here’s the truth, and Jesus knew it, even if He did say “I am God”, people still wouldn’t believe Him. It would just be another attack they use to discredit Him. Faith is a gift from God. If you don’t have it, then you are not yet one of His. Maybe one day, but not yet. I lived my first 36 yrs in unbelief.

Yes Jesus is my Lord and my God. Thank you Jesus for Marrying me and Coming into me with your Resurrected Holy Spirit, Fathering me into your son! No there is no such thing as a trinity, God is One. Mark 12:29

7:52, 8:29 - proof-texts

• Jesus is Jehovah/Yahweh (the Lord)

• Rom. 10:9-13: Note the repeated “for” (gar), which links these verses closely together. The “Lord” of 10:13 (where kurios, “Lord,” translates the Hebrew Yahweh) must be the “Lord” of 10:9, 12.

• Phil. 2:9-11. In context, the “name that is above every name” is “Lord” (vs. 11), i.e., Jehovah.

• Heb. 1:10: Here God the Father addresses the Son as “Lord,” in a quotation from Ps. 102:25 (cf. 102:24, where the person addressed is called “God”). Since here the Father addresses the Son as “Lord,” this cannot be explained away as a text in which a creature addresses Christ as God/Lord in a merely representational sense.

• 1 Pet. 2:3-4: This verse is nearly an exact quotation of Ps. 34:8a, where “Lord” is Jehovah. From 1 Pet. 2:4-8 it is also clear that “the Lord” in v. 3 is Jesus.

• 1 Pet. 3:13-15: these verses are a clear reference to Is. 8:12-13, where the one who is to be regarded as holy is Jehovah.

• Texts where Jesus is spoken of as the “one Lord” (cf. Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29): 1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:5; cf. Rom. 10:12; 1 Cor. 12:5.

• Many other texts that call Jesus “Lord” do so in ways that equate him with Yahweh: Matt. 3:3, Mark 1:3, and Luke 3:4 (cf. Is. 40:3); Matt. 7:21-22 and Luke 6:46; Matt. 8:25 and 14:30 (cf. Ps. 118:25); Acts 1:24 (addressing the Lord Jesus [cf. v. 21] in prayer and attributing to him divine knowledge); 2:21 (cf. Joel 2:32), 36; 7:59-60; 8:25; 1 Cor. 1:2 (calling on the Lord), 8 (the day of the Lord) [etc.], 31 (cf. Jer. 9:23-24); 2:16 (cf. Is. 40:13); 4:4-5; 5:4 (gathering in the name of the Lord); 6:11; 7:17, 32-35 (devotion to the Lord); 10:21-22; etc.

• Jesus has many other names or titles of God

• Titles belonging only to God

• The First and the Last (Beginning and End, Alpha and Omega): Rev. 1:7-8, 17b-18; 2:8; 22:13; cf. Is. 41:4; 44:6; 48:12; Rev. 21:6

• King of kings and Lord of lords: Rev. 17:14; 19:16; cf. Dan. 4:37; 1 Tim. 6:15

• Titles belonging in the ultimate sense only to God

• Savior: Luke 2:11; John 4:42; Phil. 3:20; 2 Tim. 1:10; Titus 2:13, cf. v. 10; 2 Pet. 1:11; 2:20; 3:2, 18; 1 John 4:14; cf. Is. 43:11; 45:21-22; 1 Tim. 4:10; on Jesus becoming the source of salvation; Heb. 5:9, cf. Ex. 15:2; Ps. 118:14, 21

• Shepherd: John 10:11; Heb. 13:20; cf. Ps. 23:1; Is. 40:11

• Bridegroom/Husband: Matt. 22:2; 25:1-13; Mark 2:19; John 3:29; 2 Cor. 11:2; Eph. 5:25-27; Rev. 19:7-9; 21:2, 9; cf. Is. 54:5; 62:5; Jer. 31:32

• Rock: 1 Cor. 10:4; cf. Is. 44:8

• Jesus’ self-declarations—his “I am” sayings

• Jesus’ “I am” (egô eimi) sayings with a predicate declare his divine functions: “I am the bread of life” (John 6:35, 48; cf. 6:41, 51), “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12), “I am the gate” of the sheep (John 10:7, 9), “I am the good shepherd” (10:11, 14), “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25), “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6), “I am the [true] vine” (John 15:1, 5). In these sayings Jesus essentially claims to be everything his people need for eternal life.

• Jesus’ “I am” (egô eimi) sayings without a predicate declare his divine identity as the divine Son come to be the Messiah: “I am [he]; do not fear” (Matt. 14:27; Mark 6:50; John 6:20; cf. Is. 43:2, 5); “I am [he]” (Mark 14:62); “I am [he], the one speaking to you” (John 4:26, cf. Is. 52:6); “unless you believe that I am [he] you will die in your sins…then you will know that I am [he]” (John 8:24, 28, cf. Is. 43:10-11); “before Abraham came into being, I am” or “I am [he]” (John 8:58, note v. 59); “I know the ones I have chosen…you will believe that I am [he]” (John 13:18-19, cf. Is. 43:10); “I am [he]” (John 18:5, cf. vv. 6-8). Note the many parallels to the “I am” sayings of God in Isaiah, which virtually all biblical scholars agree are echoed by Jesus’ “I am” sayings in John. Some scholars also see at least an indirect connection to God’s declaration “I am who I am” in Ex. 3:14 (especially for John 8:58).

• The NT gives an extraordinary emphasis on Jesus’ “name,” stating that it is the highest of all names, Eph. 1:21; Phil. 2:9-11; referring to it as “the Name,” Acts 5:41; 3 John 7; glorifying his name, Acts 19:13-18, cf. Ps. 20:7. Christians call on his name for salvation; they get baptized and receive forgiveness of sins and eternal life in his name; they cast out demons in his name; they suffer and risk their lives for his name; they do everything in his name: Matt. 7:22; 10:22; 19:29; 24:9; Mark 9:38-39; 13:13; Luke 10:17; 21:12, 17; John 1:12; 15:21; 20:31; Acts 2:21, 36, 38; 3:6, 16; 4:7, 10, 12, 17-18, 30; 5:28; 8:16; 9:14, 21, 27-28; 10:43, 48; 15:26; 16:18; 19: 5; 21:13; 22:16; Rom. 10:12-13; 1 Cor. 1:13-15; 6:11; Col. 3:17; 1 Pet. 4:14; 1 John 2:12; 1 John 3:23; 5:13; Rev. 2:3, 13; 3:8.

• Worship (proskuneô): Matt. 2:2, 11; 8:2; 9:18; 14:33; 15:25; 20:20; 28:9, 17 (cf. Matt. 4:9-10); Phil. 2:10-11 (cf. Is. 45:23); Heb. 1:6 (cf. Ps. 97:7); Rev. 1:17; 5:14 (cf. Rev. 19:10; 22:8-9)

• Religious or sacred service (latreuô): Dan. 7:14; Rev. 22:1-3

• Doxological praise: 2 Tim. 4:18; Heb. 13:20-21; 1 Pet. 4:11; 2 Pet. 3:18; Rev. 1:5-6; 5:13

:sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart:

In the first chapter of the gospel according to John he said," God is a Spirit those that worship Him must worship him in spirit and truth". This is a literal statement.
Throughout the O.T. God appeared in the angelic form of the Angel of the Lord. In the N.T. He manifested in the flesh as the son of God.
The Father and the son can both be in one body because the Spirit, who is the Father, is united with the sons’ mortal spirit. Jesus said," I and the Father are one, He in me and I in Him". He also said that," If you seen me you have seen the Father". Jesus is the only God man will ever see.

“The title “Son of God” here refers to Jesus’ place in the Trinity.”

What a stupid statement. If God is a trinity and that Jesus is the Son of God, that would make Jesus the Son of the trinity. But, how can Jesus be the Son of the trinity when trinitarians say he is the second person of the trinity? How utterly stupid!!

Jesus’ being the Son of God means that God is the Father of Jesus. It was the Father who gave Jesus life. As Jesus said at John 6:57: “I live because of the Father.”

So, is Jesus God? NO! Instead, he is the only-begotten Son of God who was sent into the world by God. As 1 John 4:9 says: “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.”

David Wood I know we have never met but I love and appreciate your ministry so much, in how you expose the lies of Islam!!! I hope and pray if it is God’s will that we can meet in person. I am a former Muslim who came to faith in the Lord Jesus 14 years ago!!!

Hebrews 1:8 {the Father calls Jesus God}
But unto the Son he {God } saith,

Robert Bowman, lapsed Catholic. He claims he did not find Jesus in the Church, but was he looking and listening? Christianity is more than about emotional feelings. It would take moral courage for him to find his way back. Here’s praying for the guy.

I want to

Jesus is God & worship Him is the the faith proclaiming after reading the whole Bible absolutely.Muslim won’t understand this claim by faith because they fail to read whole Bible.

Amazing.
