Was Jesus God? A Summary

Truth in Palmyra

Today I am running a special post for Wednesday. Usually I repost my post from over at the Isaiah 53:5 Project, but not today. I didn’t actually post one there yesterday, and I want to leave this coming Monday free for the start of a new series.

So, today I will be providing a summary with links to the recent series:

Was Jesus God?

There will be a short excerpt from the post and a link to follow. Blessing and Enjoy!

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…

Was Jesus Really God-Part 8

Truth in Palmyra

jesus is god

Today we will be wrapping up our study on the Deity of Jesus. We will close with what others had to say about this subject, or the thoughts they expressed concerning it. We won’t just talk about what those friendly to our Lord said, thought, and wrote; Jesus’ enemies also expressed themselves concerning the claims Jesus made.

The Writers of the Bible Clearly Describe Jesus as Being Divine

Time and time again, various writers of Holy Scripture describe the Divinity of Jesus Christ. We are working under the premise here that The Bible as we have it today is, in fact, inspired by God. Therefore if the writers of Scripture call Jesus God, then it is just as if God the Father called Jesus God. The only way to escape this conclusion is to deny that ,as Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is given…

Was Jesus Really God-Part 7

Truth in Palmyra

jesus is 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…

Was Jesus Really God? Part 5-Hey Man, Jesus NEVER said He was God

Truth in Palmyra

jesus is god

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…

Was Jesus Really God? Part 3-Attacks On the Divinity of Jesus Christ

Truth in Palmyra

jesus is god

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…

Rplacing Worry With Faith

Our Journey With God

replaceworrywithfaithmatthew6_34

I don’t know about you but I worry a lot. I’m being very honest here today. In the grand scheme of things I have learned a very valuable lesson. Beginning today I will no longer worry about anything. By worrying about things I’m holding on to the things that only God can take care of . Read this, Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”.
God is the one that supposed to be handling all of these things in my life. instead of trusting God and having faith, I’m breaking my head trying to do it on my own. Read this, Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things…

Prayers Are The Stairs That Lead To God

Prayers are the stairs that
lead to God, and there’s joy
every step of the way
When we make our pilgrimage to
Him with love in our hearts
each day.
