The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

It’s Monday morning, and time for us to continue our study on the deity of Jesus Christ. For those who need a recap of where we left off, it can be found here on Was Jesus Really God-Part 6.

Last week we discussed some of the statements Jesus made which, while not being the statement “I am God,” were certainly claims of being equal to and of the same substance as God the Father. We also discussed his claims of son-ship with The Father and how, in that day and time, to be someone’s son was to basically be equal with them; obviously a claim equality with God is in practicality the same as a claim of being God.

Today we are going to cover some instances where we see Jesus’ actions indicate He understood His own divine nature.

Jesus laid claim to many of the attributes of God. Jesus…

Part 6. We have been studying in some detail this very critical central doctrine of the Christian faith, and are working our way towards a conclusion. Before we dive into the meat of the post, I want to establish the parameters of how this is being approached to cut off, before they begin, certain arguments which might be made.

The objective here is to teach what the Bible teaches about the deity of Jesus Christ. We are going to look at things Jesus said, and we will look at things He did. We will look at what others had to say, including Jesus’ enemies and other writers of the Bible. By the time we finish this series we will clearly understand that those who teach counter to to the true Biblical position on the Deity of Jesus, and claim to base their position on the Bible, are simply wrong and…

Hello friends and readers! Long time no see, at least in this study of the deity of Jesus Christ. Way back in February we started a study on the deity, or non deity in some quarters, of Jesus Christ. Life interrupted, and we took a small hiatus from the series. It is now time to continue on and work our way to our conclusion.

Since it has been so long since our last installment in the series, today we will keep it light, and not dig too deeply into the meat of what Scripture teaches about the deity of Jesus. That is the point, however, where we are in our study. We have covered other things related to the topic, and all we have left is to understand what God’s own Word teaches us on this topic. So, today will mostly be a recap of what we have already covered…

We have been working our way through a study on the Deity of Jesus Christ. Simply put, this is one of the most basic and essential beliefs of orthodox Christian faith. Without belief in the Divine nature of Jesus, it can be seriously questioned if one is actually a Christian or, in fact, something else. We have discussed why it matters, a brief explanation of the Hypostatic Union, and some of the major attacks and assaults both historically and today on this essential doctrine.

As we move along in our study, I want to take a look at the whys, or the motivations, that may be driving those who doubt this doctrine to doubt in in the first place. Irritation warning here, and an intolerance advisory has been issued. Many will disagree with some of what I say here, but that’s really not my problem.

Let’s recap, quickly, just why…

Like almost any doctrine considered to be central and core to traditional orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Divinity of Jesus Christ has been under assault almost from the beginning of the New Testament church age. Yet, there is almost no Doctrine more tied to the core of true Christian faith than this one. Without it, there basically is no Christian faith as it has been traditionally known.

I had said we would discuss some of the more major assaults on this concept, and we will. Rather than me spending the next 20 years developing the ability to relay some of these thoughts and then representing them in some coherent form, my plan today is to briefly describe some of them and provide some links for further reading by readers.

One of the more prominent sources I use for this is the gotquestions.org website. It is simply a smorgasbord of…

Okay, first of all I do not mean anything irreverent or insulting by the title of this post, The Hypostatic Union For Dummies. As I have said before I am not a theologian, nor are most of my readers. I know some are, and if you are feel free to chime in with some deep theology in the comments. I would love to learn something in the process of this post. For now, though, we are going to take a hopefully simple look at an extremely complicated topic: The Hypostatic Union.

Now, this whole thing can be analyzed for years and many Greek and Hebrew words tossed around, but really this is no more than the fact that Jesus was both fully human and yet fully divine at the same time. It is the concept of two distinct natures forming a union in one individual existence. The two distinct nature…

Today, we are going to start a new series that I plan to run for several Monday mornings. We are going to take a look at what The Bible Teaches about the Divinity of Jesus Christ.

.jesus is god

When we state that we believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, we are simply saying that we believe that Jesus Christ is God. That may seem odd in light of the fact that Biblical Christianity also believes Jesus to have been human. One may wonder and be curious how both statements can possibly be true. We believe Jesus Christ to have been both 100% human and 100% God. Jesus is the God-Man. Jesus is as much God as if He had never been human, and as much human as He had never been God. If that sounds hard to understand, that is because it is hard to understand!

As with many things…
