For our purposes in our study on the deity of Christ, we can use what the Bible reveals about God to help us determine if Jesus is God. For if Jesus is in fact God, then we would expect the biblical record to show works of God done by Him and attributes of God displayed in Him. We would not have to see all of God’s works and attributes in Jesus, but we would expect to see some. So did New Testament writers record that Jesus did the works of God and did they write that He had the attributes of God? We shall see!
Welcome to Lesson 6! This lesson contains a collection of verse sets that I refer to as “the ONLYs”. Each set covers something that is said to be true only of God. Hence the name! We are going to look at six things about God that the Bible tells us only apply to Him. God is God after all. It is right that He is unique! This uniqueness also helps us when we are considering the deity of Christ for if any one of the six things were attributed to Him, that would point to His deity. And if all six were? Simple logic would dictate this conclusion: He is God!
Welcome to Lesson 5 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ! We have four more illuminating verse sets in this lesson that demonstrate the deity of Christ. These sets pair verses from the books of Psalms and Zechariah with verses in the New Testament.
Welcome to Lesson 4! This lesson continues with "verses sets" that demonstrate the deity of Christ. As explained in the previous lesson, verse sets are made up of two or more verses that, when read in light of each other, give evidence that Jesus is God. This lesson contains three verse sets that happen to be some of my favorites. They all pair verses from the book of Isaiah with verses in the New Testament. The book of Isaiah has a lot to say about Jesus!
Welcome to Lesson 3 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ! This study continues by shifting focus to a second category of verses. Category Two consists of a special collection of "verse sets" that give evidence to the deity of Christ. I remember when I first discovered that the Bible contained these special sets. What joy they brought! I pray that you find them to be just as edifying as I did, and that they lead to praise and worship to the glory of God.
Welcome to Lesson 2 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ! This lesson will continue with Section One of our study: singular verses that demonstrate the deity of Christ. Please remember to look the verses up in context, especially if you are unfamiliar with them. Also remember, there is no rush. Take your time so that you can get the most out of the material. Please take a moment to pray, get your Bible, and then let’s begin!
Welcome to Lesson 1 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ! We will begin our study by examining singular verses that demonstrate the deity of Christ. Reading these verses alone (in context of course) shows that Jesus is in fact God. These are primary texts on this topic, for they address the matter clearly and directly. They don’t leave you wondering about the identity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I invite you to join me and walk through some significant biblical evidence for the deity of Christ to the glory of God. This will be a Zero fluff study. It’s the only way I know how to offer it. This means it will not be like the many studies, books, and teachings that are geared towards women today that are heavy on fluff and light on sound doctrine. We will dig deeply! I hope you join me. This study will not disappoint!
See information in this post about a new Bible Study that will be starting tomorrow! In my previous post, I shared the back story of how I got started in apologetics. I’m curious about yours. Do you have an origin story to a life of apologetics? I’d love hear about it in the comment section. Your story would be an encouragement to me and to others as well. If you do not have a story, how about beginning today? There’s no time like the present to begin the work of an apologist! For some guidance in this area, please see the suggestions in this post.
Studying the Bible is key to a healthy Christian life. Together with the work of the Holy Spirit, knowing and obeying God’s word helps us to live lives that are more pleasing to Him as we submit to His will. His word can also protect us from or free us from false teachings, something that[...]
